Thanks to Martin of PWInsider for the following update:
– To follow up in an earlier story, Eric Bischoff said that Jeff Hardy wasn’t an original choice to be part of They a few weeks ago on the official TNA podcast. He said it was Vince Russo that came up with the idea at a meeting. When Russo pitched it, Bischoff said he had a smile on his face. He said it took convincing though, but it worked. He linked it to Hogan turning and that Hogan wasn’t the original choice in 1996 as well.
