The 83 Weeks podcast was a great chance for Eric Bischoff to talk about interesting topics in the wrestling scene. Bischoff thinks that CM Punk's start is promising and it seems that CM Punk could do big things in WWE. Eric hopes that CM Punk will not make the same mistakes as in the past.

“Well, it’s working, right? Great reaction. It started out great. A fantastically timed surprise at the end of a pay-per-view, as opposed to the beginning or somewhere in the middle. I thought that was so well done.

Story, anticipation, reality, surprise, and action. So far, WWE has checked and double-checked and triple-checked each one of those boxes. With the exception of action, because we haven’t seen that happen yet, but we all know that it will end at a pretty high level.

So I think, because they’ve checked every one of those boxes, not once, not twice, but three times, this is going to be huge. It’s going to be great for CM Punk, provided he doesn’t melt down and do some stupid thing.

If he keeps his act together and maintains a professional approach to this, he’s going to be hotter than he ever was. Hats off to him. Hats off primarily to WWE because they’re doing it right”. - Bischoff said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Eric Bischoff on Seth Rollins vs CM Punk

Eric expects Seth Rollins and CM Punk to face each other in the ring. Looking at Rollins' statements, regardless of whether they are really part of the story or reality, their match would certainly be a big deal and would cause a large number of reactions.


“I’m already convinced it’s going to be Seth and Punk. From the get-go, you know, Seth’s reaction outside the ring when Punk first showed up. Well done, by the way, it felt very believable and real, and perhaps some of it was.

That’s one of the great things about taking personal issues from outside the ring and being able to bring them in the ring, turn up the volume on them, and make them a part of the backstory. Make them a part of act one to launch the story.

It was really well done, but I think because it was so well done and the focus and everything was there, I’m convinced that it’s going to be Punk and Seth on night one and Cody and Roman on night two. How could it be any better?”
