Eric Bischoff On AEW Dynamite (VIDEO)

The former WCW Executive Vice President Eric Bischoff made his return to TNT for the first time in over 20 years on Wednesday night, serving as the "mystery moderator" in the AEW Super Wednesday Debate 2020 between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy on AEW Dynamite.

Bischoff, fresh off of his release as the WWE Monday Night RAW Executive Director, comes out making his All Elite Wrestling debut to serve as the moderator for the debate between "Le Champion" and "The Freshly Squeezed One" ahead of their highly-anticipated rematch on the August 12th episode of the weekly AEW on TNT television program.

Featured below is a recap and video clips of Eric Bischoff's debut on AEW Dynamite in the first-ever AEW Super Wednesday Debate 2020 on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.

AEW Super Wednesday Debate With Eric Bischoff, Chris Jericho & Orange Cassidy

We return and Justin Roberts introduces us to the mystery moderator for AEW Super Wednesday Debate -- and it is none other than Eric Bischoff.

Bischoff makes his first appearance on TNT in 20 years as he makes his way over to the podium to prepare tonight's Great Debate between "Le Champion" Chris Jericho and "The Freshly Squeezed One" Orange Cassidy.

From there, Bischoff introduces Orange Cassidy. He makes his way out. Next, he introduces Chris Jericho, and out he comes.

Bischoff then kicks off the Debate 2020 by asking the first question to "Le Champion." Jericho basically talks trash about Orange Cassidy with some slick one-liners and put-downs.

Orange is asked his first question and he doesn't react at all. Jericho tells Bischoff that he doesn't speak because he's an idiot. He puts him down some more.

Bischoff asks some weird question, kind of like the segment in Billy Madison where Adam Sandler is suddenly, without explanation, unbelievably rocket-science-smart about a completely random topic with a speech that just pours out of him as if it were pre-programmed.

Cassidy didn't execute it super well, but it still worked. Finally, as Jericho taunts and mocks Cassidy some more and then talks about wanting to beat his ass in their rematch next week, promising to kick the sh*t out of him and make him pay $7,000 to replace his juice-soaked suit.

He says he's also going to kick the sh*t out of him right now. With that said, he orders Jake Hager, who is standing by him, to attack. And he does.

They brawl in the ring with Hager taking it to Orange and then Jericho decking him with the Judas Effect that turns his lights out. The Best Friends hit the ring to make the save. Jericho and Hager retreat as we head to a commercial break.
