Did Eric Bischoff spoil the Kurt Angle storyline? Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/15/2017 at 07:00 PM
On his recent podcast, Eric Bischoff spoke about the Kurt Angle scandal storyline and here is what he said:
"Uhh, alrightÖIím sure Iím going to be burning a bridge with this one, cause Iím not supposed to know about this. And hopefully, nobody gets into any trouble over this because leaks happen, right? But you remember the storyline with AJ and Claire? WWE is ripping that off. Dixie is Claire and Kurt is AJ. Iím saying the storyline, that everyone is alluding to, is shockingly familiar to AJ and Claire."
Bischoff was referring to the TNA storyline from 2012 where AJ Styles was accused of having an affair with Claire Lynch. The storyline ended with it being revealed that Claire made the whole thing up.
Along with Stephanie McMahon, Dixie Carter has been one of the names rumored to be involved in the Angle storyline.
