Eric Bischoff Talks About An Idea He Feels Other Pro Wrestling Promotions Should Pick Up On

If you ask Eric Bischoff, having two announce teams for each show is something wrestling companies should pick up on today.

This is among the subjects that the WWE Hall Of Fame legend spoke about during a recent installment of his official podcast, “83 Weeks,” which is available now whereever you download your favorite pro wrestling podcasts (see link below).

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where the former WCW Executive Vice President and WWE SmackDown Executive Director touches on this particular topic.

“The idea of going to two separate announce teams was simply….I think listening to the same color and play-by-play team for two hours can be draining, especially in wrestling. It can be draining. I wanted each hour to feel like a distinct separate show. You’re still watching Nitro, but I wanted as much distinction between the two as possible. So, that was the reason for going with two color and play-by-play teams. I still think it’s a good idea. I’d suggest it if anybody gives a shit. I still think it applies to this day. Whether you know it or not as a producer, the average viewer, it’s hard to listen to the same two individuals call color and play-by-play for two hours. It just is.”
