Bischoff is joined on today’s show by his co-host Nick Hausman.
Bischoff says he wasn’t surprised to see Lesnar retain his Universal Title at SummerSlam because he wasn’t buying into the rumours that Lesnar was going to drop the Title and head to UFC. Dave Meltzer is now reporting that WWE plans on having Lesnar take on Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34, but Bischoff would personally rather have Cena take on Reigns at ‘Mania.
He thinks it’s strange that WWE’s doing Cena/Reigns & Lesnar/Strowman now instead of saving those matches for WrestleMania, because he thinks fans would get behind those matches more than Lesnar/Reigns. In spite of his thoughts on this matter, he’s happy that WWE is at least planning months in advance so they can suitably serve these two men and build a convincing and intriguing storyline.
Bischoff comments on the rumoured backstage heat on Baron Corbin. Apparently WWE has been upset with Corbin’s use of social media, and Bichoff says that’s why he stays away from texting or tweeting about business because text is easily misinterpreted. He also points out that WWE loves their talents to utilize social media, and it can be difficult for heels to do that without getting into a dispute from time to time.
