Eric Bischoff: Collision Erased The Last 12 Months Of My Criticism On AEW

Eric Bischoff had positive thoughts to say about this past Saturday’s debut of AEW Collision.

Bischoff has had his criticism about AEW in regards to their booking and the stars on the show, However on a bonus episode of his podcast “83 Weeks,” Bischoff’s thoughts on the show were very positive.

“I more than enjoyed the show,” Bischoff said regarding Saturday’s “Collision” premiere. “It completely erased the last 12 months of my opinion of AEW, and I’m going into it with an entirely clean slate.” After that, Bischoff ran through some of the highlights he saw in the new series.

“I can’t overemphasize how impressed I was with [Kevin] Kelly and [Nigel] McGuinness,” Bischoff continued.

The retired wrestling executive of WCW shared that the style of Kelly and McGuinness is the closest match to his preferred type of commentary that he’s heard in a very long time.

“Whoever booked this s**t — whoever was in the room, whoever had the most influence over the formatting and the pacing — don’t ever let that person out of your sight,” Bischoff stated. “Maybe it was Tony [Khan]. I don’t think so, because I’ve never seen anything out of AEW come remotely close to the level of near-perfection [of the ‘Collision’] formatting.”

AEW Collision airs every Saturday night on TNT, it features more stories and more action to super-serve fans. The new show will feature headliners including Thunder Rosa, Miro, Samoa Joe, Powerhouse Hobbs, and Andrade El Idolo.
