Eric Bischoff Quotes
You're going to have haters no matter what you do.
Let me just say this, Dolce Maria Garcia Rivas: You are not 'sexy,' you are not a 'star,' and you are certainly not a professional wrestler.
I consider myself an authority on drinking beer.
People always said during the Monday Night Wars that the only way we were able to compete was due to a large checkbook and deep pockets. That's not very true at all. That is a false narrative designed to shape history. WWE had significant advantages over WCW and vice versa.
There are very few voices that can speak with any kind of authority or credibility on what happened back during the time when WCW and WWF were going head to head, and I think the audience is interested in that period of time, clearly. And like I said, nobody could speak to it quite the way I could.
It was fun and something I could do together with my wife and kids. We were all hand-washing bottles, cleaning and bottling together. It was like families that cook together - we just happened to brew together.
I'm not the type of person that lives in the past, quite honestly.
In The Past
One of the advantages and disadvantages of WCW had to deal with was being a member of Turner Broadcasting.
You have to make a choice, and you have to commit to a character. You're either a babyface or a character that the fans relate to, support, love and aspire to be, or you're not. And if you're not, you're a heel: you're despicable, and they need to learn to love to hate you.
You could cure every disease known to man, and still, someone's going to hate you.

I couldn't pass a senior high school math test right now, but I could probably teach intellectual property and trademark law at Harvard.
Take the main event of WrestleMania and put it in front of 75 people, and it will dramatically affect the way everyone watching feels about it.
Had Fusient been successful in buying WCW, ultimately there would have been no one on that side of the equation, including me, that would have had the commitment to the business that Vince McMahon has had throughout the years.
Diamond Dallas Page didn't have that larger-than-life persona, but he had a different connection with the audience.
DDP was the common guy, the everyman, a blue-collar guy from New Jersey. He represented something that the average person could believe in, in a way that was a little unique.
I didn't mind when Paul Wight came to me and said WWE offered him $1 million a year for ten years. I was like, 'Dude, you need to take that. You need to go now. Lemme give you a ride to the airport.'
I am pretty transparent how I do things.
I don't regret how I built the Cruiserweight division. Could I have done better? Sure. Absolutely. I'm sure I could have, especially with 20/20 hindsight. I just don't know of anybody that I talk to that looks back at that division and says, 'Oh, man, that sucked.'
I brought Muhammad Ali to North Korea in 1995. I tried that once. It didn't work out quite that well for me as it did for Dennis Rodman, but I brought Muhammad Ali to Pyongyang, North Korea, as part of a big wrestling event called the World Peace Festival. It was a two-day event that drew over 350,000 people.
Typically, in a live-action format, when you watch a wrestling show, you've got wrestlers in a ring in front of a thousand, five thousand, ten thousand people, and they're playing to large crowd, so you never really get that intimate, close and personal dialogue with them.
There's not as many passive wrestling fans as people would think. There are a lot of fans who just can't get enough, and they're almost more interested in what's going on behind the scenes and the business of wrestling then they are, necessarily, of what's going on inside of the ring.
Social media is an evolving media. It changes every day.
Clearly there's value in Twitter and Facebook; otherwise, none of us would be involved in it.
If you go back in time and look at a map of all of the television markets where wrestling was most popular, historically, the deepest concentrations of those markets were in the northeast.
I drink a lot of beer.
Turner Broadcasting went from a very entrepreneurial, risk-taking company where I had a tremendous amount of freedom and autonomy to a corporate, bureaucratic nightmare.
