Eric Bischoff was on Monday Night Mayhem (mondaynightmayhem.com) and answered many questions from fans on his Facebook.
When asked about the creative team at TNA, Bischoff mentioned that there were a lot of people involved: headed by Russo, and that Ferrara/Conway are involved. Bischoff is in and out, while Hogan and Carter have their say. He said with any corporate network, there is no one person that has sole control on the entertainment business with the exception of Vince McMahon – but not so much now due to WWE being part of a public company and the time it is now.
He said networks have the final say and it’s their job to manage around it.
He then says Russo is doing a "phenomenal job", that fans hope Bischoff bad mouths Russo, that fans want a civil war, wanting to cheer one guy and hoping for another’s demise. He noted fans want an internally fractured situation that they can all talk about to point fingers at because that would make it interesting to people.
Bischoff says out of any team, that this team is more fun to work with than any team he worked with before. He says Russo is passionate, that there’s nothing wrong with being passionate, and he’s very open minded despite what people read about him, what people like to repeat about him. He said people change, situations change for Russo, and for him. He said he’s spending more time with the creative team because he’s having a lot of fun working with them. Bischoff said he wouldn’t spend time with them nor is he required to if he wasn’t having fun. He closed it by saying that the TNA product will continue to evolve.
