WWE Hall of Famer and former WCW President Eric Bischoff appeared on AdFreeShows to discuss a variety of topics such as why he never saw WWE Hall of Fame class of 2023 inductee and Lucha Libre legend Rey Mysterio as World Championship material in WCW and why he never made Mysterio the WCW World Champion.
Eric Bischoff said:
“At that time, Rey was about, what, 5’6″, whatever he is, 5’7″, and I don’t think he weighed 175 pounds at that point and how are you going to book him with Bill Goldberg and Kevin Nash and Lex Luger and Hulk Hogan and do it in a way that’s believable? It would’ve been tough and I don’t think I would’ve seen it.”
