Over the last month, Eric Bischoff has been cited almost as much in wrestling circles as Triple H or Paul Heyman, or ..... well, anyone. It's almost as though he's trying to make up for lost time spent in TNA getting back in the good graces with WWE folks.
And there - almost intentionally - we have it right off the bat; a backhanded compliment towards Easy E. But why? What did Eric Bischoff do that makes him the scorn of wrestling fans everywhere?
Is it because, some 15 to 20 years ago, he dared challenge the mighty World Wrestling Federation and (gasp) actually succeeded for a while? Is it because he was at least partially responsible for created the boom period in wrestling history? Is it because he's truly a jerk that tried to ruin the careers of everyone from Jim Ross to Eddie Guerrero?
We'll get to that later, but let's look first at some of Bischoff's most recent appearances.
