Eric Bischoff Speaks Out On '83 Weeks' Podcast

Eric Bischoff Reveals He Lost All Respect For Shawn Michaels After His Matchup Against Hulk Hogan

WWE Hall of Famer and former WCW President Eric Bischoff recently took to his 83 Weeks podcast, where he spoke about a variety of topics such as how he lost all respect for fellow WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels after Michaels’ 2005 WWE SummerSlam Matchup against “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan.

Eric Bischoff said:

“I lost all respect for Shawn Michaels. It was pretty clear. There was an issue between Hulk and Shawn Michaels. There was a lack of respect, I think, there, perhaps some jealousy on Shawn’s part that, ‘Here’s this Hulk Hogan. He’s still here. He’s still the guy.’ I don’t know. I wasn’t close to Shawn at that point.”

Eric Bischoff also spoke about how Hulk Hogan was extremely disappointed by the match and how he knew what was going on and that he was being embarrassed by Shawn Michaels, but Hulk wasn’t angry.

Eric Bischoff said:

“He knew what was going on. He knew he was being embarrassed out there by Shawn and he knew it was intentional. He wasn’t angry. I even remember seeing him after the match because I went right to him. I don’t wanna say feelings were hurt – that’s not the right way to say it. I think he was just extremely disappointed because he knew it sucked.”
