Outside of the recent news surrounding Something Else To Wrestle on the WWE Network (and this week’s episode being postponed, which you can read here), one of the most talked about shows in the world of wrestling podcasts has been the new 83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson.
Focusing on WCW Monday Nitro’s 83 week reign over the WWF in the late 1990’s, the show offers an insight into the ongoings of the Monday Night Wars through the perspective of the former man in charge of WCW, ‘Easy E’. This week’s newest episode touched on WWE Hall Of Famer Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart’s arrival to WCW in late-1997. Among Bischoff’s remarks about ‘The Excellence of Execution’, Eric would state that Bret brought nothing creatively to the table after his very public, nasty departure from the WWF.
‘The Best There Is’ responded while talking recently with TalkSport in the United Kingdom to promote his speaking tour:
“Eric Bischoff is an idiot, total complete idiot. Maybe the single stupidest idiot that ever got into wrestling.
A guy that never came through on anything he ever said, he had zero ideas for wrestling. I’ve heard him say that I came there and I was a broken man. That I didn’t have it in the heart anymore. That I broke my heart with wrestling. That’s such horsesh*t. Absolutely an insult to me. It makes me so mad I’m glad he’s not around me.”

EA’s Take: Bret Hart beefing with someone? You don’t say…seriously though, you can’t say anything about Bret without him taking it personally. He’s notoriously known for being a guy that took himself way too serious. I’m going to take (possibly) a surprising stance here and say kudos to Bischoff. Whether he’s telling the truth or not, he’s certainly doing what is supposed to be done with a new project and that’s get people talking. Sean Waltman also discussed some comments Bischoff made about him on his show, X-Pac 1,2,360, devoting a large portion of an episode to it. Kudos to Conrad and Bischoff!
