Eric Bischoff was a highlight for many of last night’s AEW Dynamite, but don’t expect to see Bischoff back in TNT’s pro wrestling fold anytime soon.
Mike Johnson originally reported at PWInsider that Bischoff’s presence happened to be a “one-off” appearance, but WrestleZone’s Managing Editor in Bill Pritchard just conducted an exclusive interview with Eric and the man himself had this to say about his current status with All Elite Wrestling.
“No. It was a cameo and it made sense in that particular scene between Orange Cassidy and Chris Jericho,” Eric simply stated.
Eric appeared as a moderator between Orange Cassidy and Chris Jericho in their freshly squeezed debate last night and sure enough, the former WCW President’s presence on another TNT prime-time wrestling product happened to cause quite the stir among ardent fans. Bischoff did lean into that fact on social media as he had a bit of fun with TNT’s official Twitter account.
And glad to be back. Miss me? https://t.co/cqbh1de04Z

During last night, Eric did happen to rule Orange Cassidy as the winner of the spirited debate. Stay tuned to WrestleZone as you’ll be able to hear the full interview with Eric soon.
