On Bischoff being let go: ďWell, Iíd like to say that I think that Eric Bischoff is ó first of all, Eric is a friend of mine. And Eric is a good friend of mine that I love personally, I love him professionally. And I was sad for the news that came out this past week on a professional level and a personal level. So I want to wish Eric the absolute best. Eric and I arenít. you know, ĎOh my god, Ericís gone! I can never talk to him again!í Absolutely not. And you know, sometimes in business things happen for whatever reasons. Sometimes you donít know the reasons and you have to move on. But I do believe that Eric Bischoff is one of the smartest guys Iíve ever met and worked with.Ē
On his request for people commenting on Bischoffís release: ďI think heís one of the nicest guys, and he also is a human being. So when you sit there and you make comments through a keyboard, or through your phone. And itís a faceless, just random thing. Remember that youíre making comments about human beings. And youíre making comments about real people that have families. And real people that yes, weíre in the public eye and I get that. And to a certain point, say and do whatever the hell it is you want to do. But also remember that itís real life, and that we are human, and that we do have families. And believe it or not, we have feelings. And I know that Eric will succeed. This is like ó he ainít dead! But I just want to publicly wish Eric Bischoff the absolute best in business, life, and everything else, because heís a good friend and Iím proud and happy to say that heís my friend.Ē
