Earlier on this website, I commented how Vince Russo seems to have convinced Dixie Carter to stay in character when she communicates with fans on her official Facebook page (pure speculation on my part, by the way). Well, in a somewhat amusing related story, Eric Bischoff doesn’t really have to change his persona on his Facebook page because, well, he’s just himself!
Take his latest Facebook update, for example. In it, Bischoff takes a preemptive shot against those folks who will, undoubtedly, bash last night’s episode of iMPACT! In his update, Bischoff said:
What a GREAT WAY to start a Friday! BHE TV announces a new deal with one of the most successful media companies in the world and the “wrestling experts” have started their predictable wailing and gnashing of teeth over last nights show. Means we did it right and most likely will get a record rating!
Now, while there is no word yet on whether or not last night’s episode of iMPACT! scored record ratings, Bischoff does make a good point. Traditionally, when the internet wrestling scene gnashes their teeth over an episode of any televised wrestling show, the ratings go through the roof. If Bischoff is correct in his suggestion, then it will only serve to further prove that most of the online wrestling fans don’t “get it” (which is something that Bischoff has commented on over and over again via his Facebook page).
