    Give ’em hell Deal.

    I can’t say I don’t get Bischoff’s attitude toward the book. I’ve never been in the position of having made decisions (both good and bad) that changed the landscape of an entire industry, or having to spend the rest of my life justifying those choices.

    That said, it would be just as dishonest to gloss over the bad things he did as it would be to ignore the good things.

    Listener #11 here. This is the first wrestling show I’m going to in a long time. I’ve got your back against Kevin Nash, I’m bigger than he is.

  4. Anthony says:

    I’ve had someone try to get Bischoff to sign the death of wcw book for me and Eric refused. Vince Russo signed it.

  5. AK says:

    I’m reading through the Death of WCW again. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve read it but the book is falling apart, so let’s just say many, many times. I even went to the bookstore looking to buy another copy but the one copy they had left there was somehow almost in as bad shape as mine is. Anyways, the part I just finished reading is literally the exert that Eric Bischoff got all hot and bothered from.

    If I was to ever meet him, as per his request I won’t bring the Death of WCW book for him to sign. Instead, I will bring him the pages (photocopied!) in which he spoke about and his co-host recited word for word from the book and see if he will sign it. If he somehow did, I’d frame it for posterity.

      That’s strange. My local Barnes and Noble had both editions in immaculate condition when I frequented it last (bought the updated edition).

    So Sting was the original lobster head. It’s a shameful thing.

  7. TV's Mr. Neil says:

    Hey, Conrad Thompson loves you guys. He references you guys all the time.

    Bischoff’s reaction to your book is strange in that he didn’t exactly specify anything that was inaccurate in Death Of WCW. Even if the $15 mil loss isn’t accurate, it must be close enough that he couldn’t outright deny it. He kind of hedged when Conrad pressed him on it. Everything else was fairly spot-on. WCW actually DID book itself into the ground in 1999 with television that nobody wanted to watch. Pretty hard to deny that. Especially since WCW never gained ground on WWE’s ratings ever again.

    Speaking of which, how puny of an accomplishment 83 weeks is in retrospect. That was twenty years ago, and WWE has dominated Monday night ever since. Try 1048 weeks, Bisch!

    Don’t let Bischoff get off on tangents, RD, especially if all he’s going to do is attack you and say that you weren’t there. That’s NOT an argument. Make sure he stays on topic and explains exactly what you said that was inaccurate. If he can’t do that, then he’s just blustering and trying to be a contrarian.

    Starrcast is going to be in my neck of the woods in Chicago. Sadly, I won’t be there, as my medical situation makes that impossible. I’ll be there in spirit, I guess. And please tell me there will be a recording of this.

  8. NitroFan says:

    I haven’t listened to much of Bischoff’s new podcast yet, but please remember that (according to him anyway) his hands were tied a good bit once AOL/Time Warner bought Turner out. Granted, a lot of that may have happened after the ratings had already gone down, but still, if he wasn’t really given a chance to turn the company around, that has to be considered.

  9. The Million Cent Man says:

    Thanks for putting out the shows every month, guys. I always enjoy them.

    Hey, Deal. When you confront Bischoff, bring Angry Jim and Diamond Dan with ya.
