While it’s exciting that the NWO is going in the WWE Hall of Fame this year for this year’s Wrestlemania, it is a bummer that Eric Bischoff is not going to be included in the induction when he should. Why should Bischoff be included? Well for starters, Eric created the iconic stable/wrestling faction himself. The nWo aka the New World Order was all his idea and it was all his idea to have Hogan, Hall and Nash as the group’s first three guys. Hall and Nash were the first announced in the group but they got started as the Outsiders at first then Hulk Hogan was revealed as the third guy later which was a historic moment in WCW. That was when Hogan turned heel for the first time which was important in wrestling history.
Other reasons Bischoff deserves to be in the induction with the NWO at the Hall of Fame is that Bischoff was the leader of the group on WCW TV back in the day. Bischoff had a lot of historic moments with the group back in the 90’s and early 2000’s years when WCW used to be around. It was Bischoff that helped the nWo become the iconic wrestling faction that it is today. The NWO are the greatest wrestling faction/group of all time.
I’m trying to watch every episode of WCW Monday Nitro on the WWE Network still and all this NWO stuff is pretty historic TV.
Why isn’t Bischoff in the induction when he should? Does he and McMahon hate each other in real life??? I don’t know… since Vince fired Bischoff from running the RAW brand behind the scenes. Not sure the reasons and Bischoff himself doesn’t know the real reasons behind it. I listen to Bischoff’s podcast 83 weeks but it seems that he isn’t upset at not being included.
Everybody wants Bischoff to be in the WWE Hall of Fame in some way whether it will be in the NWO or be in the Hall of Fame solo but Bischoff himself even said he doesn’t care about being in the Hall of Fame. I remember him saying that he doesn’t really want to be in the Hall of Fame anyways ’cause he doesn’t really think he’s all that big and believes not many people care for him.
Well, Eric, I appreciate you trying to stay humble and honest as possible but you have plenty of fans that love you and respect the hell out of you. Eric is a legend and he doesn’t even realize it to this day. I know I’ve always respected him. When Eric was on WCW TV for Monday Nitro, he played one of the most hated heels in wrestling history. Fans used to hate that man back in the day.
I think Bischoff should be in the WWE Hall of Fame but Vince won’t do it for whatever reason. Maybe the reason Vince won’t have Bischoff in Hall of Fame with NWO is ’cause Bischoff was in the NWO in WCW and not in the NWO when they were in WWE. That could be the reason… but WCW is WWE now that WWE owns WCW. WWE is just starting to induct more WCW stars.
83 Weeks is my favorite wrestling podcast and I listen to it all the time. Even if Eric is not going in the WWE Hall of Fame with the nWo, hopefully he’ll still make a Wrestlemania appearance with them at least. That’s better than nothing.
