On a recent episode of 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff, in a discussion, talked about when he had started dying his hair in WCW. Bischoff said that he started getting grey when he was 23 years old and that he plucked his first grey hair out in his early 20’s and he just thought the hair had died. Afterwards, he started seeing more and he thought they were all dying out. This is what he said:
“I kinda tolerated it by the time I got to AWA and I knew I was going to be on camera I was grey enough that it started to bother me because I was still 50-60% grey. So I started dying it and once you start dying it and you’re on camera — you’re pretty much stuck with doing it, right? I did it all through the AWA and of course I got to WCW right off of doing ESPN for AWA and I had dark hair, so there in WCW and before you know it, you’re in your 40’s and you’ve been dying your hair for 15 years.”
It was the best decision for him since he was seen on television all the time back then and couldn’t afford to look like he did.
