Eric Bischoff shocked by Vince McMahon scandal

Eric Bischoff was left shocked after the Vince McMahon scandal and the fact that he gave 3 million to one WWE member just to keep quiet about the affair. “I was dumbfounded, shocked, I can’t imagine anybody felt any differently,” Bischoff said, as quoted by wrestlinginc.

“It’s a day that I never thought, even though it appears to be very temporary, it’s not a permanent situation, at least that’s not the way it’s been presented or the way I’ve read it. Nonetheless, it’s a big damn deal and it did shock me.

There are many who are involved in this story, and all of this could create big problems for them. “I feel bad for a lot of people, I still have a lot of friends in WWE that I do care about a lot, and regardless of how this ends up, it’s going to adversely affect a lot of people.

How do you feel anything other than bad for people that you know and have affection for that are having to go through this? I feel bad for Bruce [Prichard]. I sent Bruce a text [during Friday Night SmackDown] going ‘Brother, what a hell of a ride.’ To be sitting in that seat and to be there, in the eye of that frickin hurricane, I feel for a lot of people”.

Vince McMahon and Friday Night SmackDown

Vince McMahon surprised everyone when he appeared on Friday Night SmackDown. “When I watched it, I watched it a couple of times because I wanted to try and get a feel for Vince,” Bischoff said.

“I don’t want to pretend like I know Vince, because I don’t and I’m not sure how many people really do, to be honest. But I was trying to read him and Vince is really hard to read. After I watched it a couple of times, I thought maybe he is taking this one last opportunity just in case because he’s not really sure how this is going to end up.

If this was his goodbye, that was a good one”. “I’m going to say it, I’m going to be controversial, who gives a sh*t right at this stage in my life,” Bischoff said. "I hope this is a major problem that WWE and Vince McMahon will be able to overcome and move on [from]. However, whatever the outcome will be”.
