On what he thinks of former WCW employee Keith Mitchell, who was also up for what would become the WCW President job:

EB: Keith Mitchell is under the radar. If I was advising Ed Nordholm I would advise him to hire Keith Mitchell before seven o’clock tomorrow morning and let Keith Mitchell run creative. Keith Mitchell has forgotten more about creative and sport entertainment, professional wrestling, than that tub of sh*t John Gaburick and whoever else is working with him. Keith knows more than he and Ed Nordholm would learn in 200 years. He’s really seen it all. He’s learned from success, he’s learned from failure and he’s been an instrumental part of it. He can cut through the bullshit. So Ed, if you are listening, I know you follow me on Twitter: call Keith Mitchell. Make a deal with him. If you want to save your ass Keith Mitchell is the guy to help you do it.
