Eric Bischoff really did wait over two hours into his latest podcast to address his departure from WWE.

On this week’s episode of 83 Weeks, Bischoff attempted to explain why he was let go by WWE last week. Hired by WWE in late June, Bischoff was fired as Executive Director of SmackDown amidst reports of missteps with FOX as well as questions about his work habits.

When discussing his shorter than expected stint with WWE, Bischoff sounded more disappointed than surprised by the move from Vince McMahon.

“My feelings right now are, number one, I’m really grateful for the opportunity to work in WWE. It didn’t work out the way I wanted it to work out. It clearly didn’t work out the way Vince McMahon wanted it to work out. But that happens. I’m not taking any of it personally. Professionally, I’m taking a hard look at it and thinking it through. More than anything, I’m grateful for the opportunity. Part of the reason is I am, I had a chance to work with a great team of people. The writing staff for SmackDown in particular, as well as a lot of other writers who were on Raw. They are very, very talented and unbelievably hard working and dedicated group of people. Just to have the opportunity to work with people like that, was worth this experiment.”

City loses appeal against reinstating 2 employees fired for sexual activity in fire chief's office

  City loses appeal against reinstating 2 employees fired for sexual activity in fire chief's office The City of Vernon has lost its appeal to fire a city firefighter who was caught on camera engaging in sexual activity with a subordinate in the fire chief's office last year — but isn’t done fighting yet.The city originally fired Capt. Brent Bond and dispatcher Cara-Leigh Manahan in March 2018 after "a brief episode of consensual activity" in the fire chief's office.

Eric continued

“I didn’t come here thinking I was going to be in WWE for 5 or 10 years. I looked at it as a relatively short term opportunity, meaning 2-3 years. I didn’t think it would be quite this short term, but sometimes that happens. WWE is a great company with a very defined culture and process. I didn’t necessarily fit into it. That’s just the way it is. I’m not sad, disappointed, any of those things. Just looking forward to the next opportunity, whenever and wherever that may be.”

Cracking back on what he called the dirt sheets, Bischoff wanted to make it very clear that he and current SmackDown Executive Director Bruce Prichard are very close friends. In fact Bischoff would go on to say that without Prichard he probably would not have gotten the opportunity with WWE in the first place.

Bischoff would also announce his travel plans for the remainder of the year. The former WWE employee plans to stay in Stamford , Connecticut until the end of November before heading down to Florida where he plans to spend a month with family during the Holidays. Bischoff will then make his way back to his home in Wyoming.

When asked by his podcast co-host Conard Thompson if he would do it all over again, Bischoff quickly answered he had no regrets and he would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Bischoff added he would have liked to have met Vince McMahon’s expectations and also would have liked to have had a longer run with WWE this time around.
