-- Eric Bischoff recently did an interview with "The One Wrestling Show" from Glasgow, you can check out the interview at this link. During the interview, Bischoff was asked about the differences between working with Vince McMahon and Dixie Carter, to which he replied that he was a talent playing a role in WWE and not involved in any strategic discussions or creative. In TNA, he started as a consultant and now has evolved and is much more involved. As a result, he can't compare the two. Bischoff said he can go toe-to-toe with Vince McMahon on a creative basis. When asked if he can take McMahon after Bischoff challenged McMahon to a fight in 1998, Eric says who knows? Triple H said if he was in control of WCW, he would have let the gates open during the DX 1998 invasion of WCW. Bischoff said if he knew in advance, it's quite possible. He's never shied away from competition anytime in his life.
Bischoff was also asked about Vince Russo's departure. Eric doesn't want to comment on it, that he wasn't part of the discussion or decision maker in the process. He said it's not fair to the company and since he doesn't know the details, he cannot comment on it.
