The 12th episode of former WCW owner Eric Bischoff's weekly podcast "Bischoff on Wrestling" is now up on iTunes. During the shows opening segment entitled "The Business of Professional Wrestling," Bischoff shared his thoughts on Dolph Ziggler winning the Intercontinental Championship at No Mercy. He also gave his opinion on the upcoming Hell in a Cell match between Sasha Banks & Charlotte at the Hell in a Cell PPV on October 30th.
"I think it's great. I've said it before, I've said it enough times on this show, and I don't want to sound ridiculous about it, but I think he's probably one of the most underrated, um, I don't wanna say underutilized because that implies that I know something on backstage that I don't. I just love watching him. I think he's a phenomenal character, a phenomenal athlete, he's got a quick wit, he's obviously very charasmatic. I've watched him on, you know, news, he's relevant, he's just [a] bright guy. So, I'm happy for him, and I'd love to see more of him."
Upcoming HIAC match between Sasha Banks & Charlotte:
"I don't like it at all. I don't like it. The standard for Hell in a Cell is pretty high. It physically is what it is. It's a hardcore match. It's an extreme match. It's all of the above and then some. I've talked before about expectations and managing expectations with the audience. Sometimes you can do such a great job building something up that you forgot to remember that you also have to deliver. I am not taking anything away from either of those athletes that happen to be women. I am suggesting that the audience may not necessarily want to see that type of entertainment and that type of match out of that type of an athlete. That's just my opinion."
Bischoff's comments begin at the 22:53 mark in the above audio.
