Eric Bischoff Speaks on Why He Joined TNA, Vince McMahon & More

– Alex Marvez of Scripps News has a new interview up with Eric Bischoff. Here are some of the highlights:

Bischoff on why he hooked up with TNA: “It was the combination of a lot of things. Most of all, I like Dixie. She has a lot of integrity and I like to be in business with people like that. Secondly, I saw an opportunity. The way we have our deal structured is great for Bischoff-Hervey Entertainment. And this provided me with a chance to get back into a business I love. I believe a creative person who has a certain feel for this business can change the fortunes of this company in a good way.”

Bischoff on learning from WCW: “No matter what people have said or written about me, I know what I accomplished changed the business and had a positive impact. I also made a lot of mistakes and have the scar tissue to prove it. I’m going to try and repeat the good stuff and avoid the bad stuff.”

Bischoff on Vince McMahon: “I have a tremendous respect for Vince and, in a perverse way, like him. But at the end of the day, I think I’m better than him. I’m more creative than him and have a better feel for the business. It’s just that he happens to be a lot more successful than I am.”
