#1 WWE Rumours: Eric Bischoff take a shot on the RETRIBUTION storyline
One of the most dominating forces on the WWE RAW brand is RETRIBUTION. In the last couple of months, this fiction makes so much chaos on the show. If we look at fans’ reactions on the RETRIBUTION idea then it gets mixed reactions for the universe. On Social Media, fans make so much about this fiction member’s names already.
Eric Bischoff has revealed that what he thinks about the WWE RETRIBUTION
In the recent interview, former WWE executive Eric Bischoff gives his opinion on RETRIBUTION and give the reason why he not a big fan of this WWE idea. As per the Bischoff’s opinion, there is no logic behind this new WWE fiction and the storyline also sucks.
Here are Eric Bischoff’s words:
“I think it sucks, Why are they there? What’s the story? What is the inciting incident? What is the motivation? the reason that they’re there? …It maybe had the potential of being a good idea before it wasn’t.”
Eric Bischoff shoots on WWE RETRIBUTION storyline
Further, Eric said that he thinks there is no purpose behind this masked fiction on WWE RAW. He also stated that he doesn’t want to be part of the creative team in WWE again.
Here are Eric Bischoff’s words:
“I almost get angry at myself when I go off on this kind of a tangent because I sound like I’m trying to prove I’m smarter than, better than or whatever, or I should be doing [it]. Don’t want to do it. I don’t ever want to be in a creative position at a wrestling company. It’s not my thing, been there, done that. Been to the mountain and had a chance to look down and there are no more mountains I wanna climb.”
No purpose behind the WWE RETRIBUTION storyline on RAW?
“I’ve learned this over the last 10-15 years more than I knew it at the time when I was actually in the business. Whatever storyline you’re going to launch, whatever character you’re going to launch, that angle, that story has to begin with either an inciting incident – as you would say in the film industry – or an angle, as you would refer to it probably in wrestling.”
“But there has to be a reason for it. You have to be able to answer the question, ‘Why?’ I put this on social media the other day. The one question that could help so many people who are producing wrestling right now is, ‘Why?’ Why are you doing what you’re doing?”
