Dave Meltzer is reporting that Eric Bischoff is all but gone from TNA, in terms of involvement and power within the company. Meltzer revealed on his Wrestling Observer radio show this week that Bischoff remains under contract with the company and will continue getting paid until it expires early next year, but that's where their relationship ends.
Additionally, Meltzer says that there's many people within TNA that are glad Bischoff is done with the company.
"He wasn't at the PPV..wasn't at the last TV..won't be around," Meltzer stated. "A lot of people are really happy on that one. Eric was never very well liked…Eric was very lucky that he had some very smart people propping him up in the WCW Days and those people aren't there now, and he got exposed on this run real bad."
WrestleZone reached out to Eric Bischoff directly for comment, but have yet to receive a response at the time of this writing being published. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
