Eric Bischoff Talks About AEW Making NYC Debut This Week

AEW is about to finally invade the Big Apple.

What does Eric Bischoff think?

The former WWE and WCW executive spoke on a recent installment of his “83 Weeks” podcast about All Elite Wrestling running their debut shows in the NYC market with their Grand Slam: Dynamite and Grand Slam: Rampage special events on Wednesday and Friday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York.

Featured below is an excerpt from the episode where Bischoff speaks on this subject and gives his thoughts.

“I was completely unfamiliar with the Arthur Ashe Stadium up until recently. Obviously, never been there and I didn’t even know it really existed, to be honest with you. I’ll watch the US Open and there are certain tennis events I like to watch. But I never pay attention to the venue. Then when I heard AEW was going to Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York, I was liked it’s frickin’ New York and they’re gonna do a big event in New York and that’s gonna be a good move because it’s New York. It helps brand the product in a good way. And then I saw the stills of Arthur Ashe, and I was like this place is perfect for wrestling. It’s got that deep kind of bowl look, so kudos to the team for choosing that venue because it was a brilliant choice.”
