Bischoff commented on the anniversary of his demotion this past Tuesday, writing on his Twitter, "14 yrs ago today I was 'pay or played' from my Turner contract. They brought me back 4 months later when the Kool Aide went sour. Been a great ride ever since. Grateful for all the great opportunities that have manifested since that day, and a great biz partner in @JasonHervey and building an incredible biz. Some s--t is meant to be."
