AEW President Tony Khan Responds To Eric Bischoff Telling Him To "Shut The F*ck Up" During War With WWE

Former WCW boss Eric Bischoff recently took aim at Tony Khan and his comments about the AEW vs. WWE war, and the AEW President has now responded by taking some shots at the WWE Hall of Famer. Check it out...

Former WCW boss Eric Bischoff has appeared on AEW Dynamite, but didn't hold back from taking aim at AEW President Tony Khan during a recent edition of his podcast. Making it clear that Khan needs to focus on making the best show possible rather than trash-talking WWE, Bischoff didn't hold back (a surprise considering he once challenged Vince McMahon to a fistfight on WCW TV).

Talking to Busted Open Radio, Khan was quick to respond to Bischoff and, while he certainly stopped short of completely tearing into the WWE Hall of Famer, he still took a few shots at him! 

"I really like Eric and I was kind of surprised by Eric’s comments, because they were coming from Eric Bischoff," Khan said. "I think Eric Bischoff is probably the last person anyone would expect to say that a President of a wrestling company should be quiet."

"I was amused by Eric’s comments. I like Eric when we’re together, but this is the ultimate example, I think, of glass houses in some ways, knowing how Eric conducted himself as the President of WCW," he continued. "For Eric Bischoff, of all people, the guy who got lowered down on a motorcycle from the ceiling, the guy who challenged Vince McMahon to fight him, to say that somebody should be quiet is laughable. Eric is doing an act and I respect it."

Explaining it was WWE that decided to go head-to-head with AEW and that Eric is simply a commentator now, Khan said he is focused on the wrestling and proceeded to point out where Bischoff went wrong when he was calling the shots in WCW during the Monday Night War.

"I am focused on the wrestling, and pushing these people and not running out of the company. Chris Jericho couldn’t get out of WCW fast enough." Khan noted. "Eddie Guerrero was put in his place and the wrestlers and were told by their boss, ‘There’s only three guys in the company.’ When Eric said that Hogan, Savage and Piper were the only three guys that ever drew money, of course, a slap in the face to a few other people in the room, but also what does that say to the morale of the young wrestlers who are busting their ass every week? It just doesn’t make sense."

Needless to say, there are a lot of good points on both sides, but we're leaving towards Khan's way of looking at things here. Bischoff is very much the pot calling the kettle black in this situation, and just because he lost a wrestling war...well, it doesn't mean that AEW is going to when all is said and done.

What do you guys think?
