There are always weird and interesting rumors floating around the internet, but this one took even me by surprise. Some websites are beginning to report that Eric Bischoff is being set up as the “fall guy” for the horrendous ratings that TNA has garnered lately. Here is the rumor as I’ve seen it:
Speaking of TNA, the company has invested millions in talent and time with little to show for it other than falling ratings. Instead of making things better, Hulk Hogan and company have made things worse and Eric Bischoff is set-up as the fall guy at the moment. Dixie Carter is enamored with Hogan and feels he can do no wrong and there has to be a scapegoat. With Bischoff’s track record he is the best candidate to take the heat for all things going wrong.
I feel like there’s no truth to this rumor and that it was probably crafted by a mark who doesn’t realize that the on-air tension between Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff is part of a storyline. Just another example of how we all need to be careful of what we read on the interwebs!
