Eric Bischoff has dismissed the leadership qualities of AEW President Tony Khan following CM Punk’s scathing comments about his former boss.

On a recent edition of Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” podcast, Punk said that Khan is not a boss but is instead a nice guy and claimed that AEW is not a company interested in making money.

On a recent edition of his “83 Weeks” podcast, Bischoff reflected on Punk’s comments which he feels fit with what he’s had to say about Khan in the past. He said,

“I don’t really know what he’s like backstage, but if you look at the patterns, dot, dot, dot connect the dots, there’s a picture pattern at least of everything that we’ve seen for the last year, two years, three years. I’ve all indicated that Tony just is not a leader. How many times have I said it on this show and upset you or been put in my place? Sometimes appropriately so. But it’s just obvious when you see how the lack of leadership manifests on a regular basis.

“There’s a lot of chatter that, you know, we don’t talk about here. I don’t talk. I don’t even bring it up because we all know people that work in close proximity. So in cases inside AEW. So we all know kind of what’s going on, or at least we were told what’s going on backstage. There’s an impression that one has just if you know people that know somebody. But you also look at, like I say, some of the things that we’ve seen over the last couple of years. The Punk situation is probably the most obvious. That’s lack of leadership. I talked about it on 83 weeks. I talked about it in strictly business.” 

Khan has hit back at Bischoff in the past and was pleased when he learned that Bischoff’s “Strictly Business” podcast had finished.

In a recent podcast interview, former WCW President Eric Bischoff criticized the leadership qualities of AEW President Tony Khan. Bischoff’s comments came after CM Punk, a prominent professional wrestler, made scathing remarks about Khan and AEW.

During an appearance on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” podcast, Punk stated that Khan is not a boss but rather a nice guy. He also claimed that AEW is not focused on making money. These comments align with Bischoff’s previous opinions about Khan’s leadership abilities.

On his own podcast, “83 Weeks,” Bischoff discussed Punk’s remarks and expressed his agreement with them. He mentioned that the lack of leadership from Khan has been evident for the past few years. Bischoff pointed out that there have been numerous instances where the absence of strong leadership has been apparent within AEW.

Although Bischoff admitted that he does not have firsthand knowledge of Khan’s behavior backstage, he alluded to conversations he had with individuals who work closely with AEW. According to Bischoff, these discussions have provided him with insights into the situation backstage at AEW.

Bischoff also referred to the CM Punk situation as a prime example of the lack of leadership within AEW. He had previously discussed this issue on his podcast and referred to it as a clear indication of Khan’s inability to lead effectively.

It is worth noting that Khan has responded to Bischoff’s criticisms in the past. He expressed satisfaction when he learned that Bischoff’s podcast, “Strictly Business,” had come to an end.
