Eric Bischoff Talks His New WWE DVD, How He Would Book Roman Reigns and Pro Wrestling's Future

Eric Bischoff was special guest on episode 125 of The Ross Report on which he discussed a number of topics including his new WWE DVD, Eric Bischoff: Sports Entertainment’s Most Controversial Figure, how he would book Roman Reigns, and the future of professional wrestling.

On His New WWE DVD:

“I was tentative at first because, as we all know, history is written by the victors and WWE has their own point of view about history, as they should. And we’ve all heard it. We’ve all seen it. But I was a little reluctant to just kind of completely open up and particularly bringing in my personal life to the extent that I did and my family and not having any control at all over anything, just hoping for the best and hoping that it would be a well balanced and thoughtful documentary and it was more than I could have hoped for. I think the WWE and the entire team that worked on the project really made an effort to produce something that was a little different than what the audience has seen before, at least when it comes to my career, so I texted Vince [McMahon] after I saw it, the final cut, and told him that I was both very proud and very grateful that they produced it because it’s something that’ll live, it’ll be around long after I am.”

On Booking Roman Reigns:

“I’d like to think that what I would do is I would watch the reaction, much like I used to do when I’d sit up in the stands, behind the curtain, kind of find the cheapest seat in the house and just try to feel like a fan is, I would sit back and I would try to watch it and then I would react to it, but I would react to it in a very seamless way that felt organic and natural as possible and I would let the story and character go where the story and character needed to go based on the kind of social interaction that I was seeing even if it was not the direction I wanted to go in in the first place. You have to adjust. At some point, you’ve got to go, ‘okay, I wanted to go left, but I kind of need to go right,’ but I’d do it slowly and gradually and make it feel organic.”

On The Future of Professional Wrestling:

“When we reach that point where all that ‘highspotitis’ as I like to call it, has kind of come and gone, because that’s what’s en vogue right now. Everybody wants to see that crazy crap. It doesn’t matter if there’s a story. It doesn’t matter if it makes sense. They just want to see Cirque du Soleil. That’ll run its course and it always comes back to story. So here’s where I think the future is bright: when it comes back to story, and it will, and when we’ve adjusted to the fact that our big time characters don’t need to be 6’6″ [and] 350 lbs., you’re going to find a lot more talent that can deliver because they won’t be doing six hurricanranas in a row and taking 15 dropkicks to the skull and getting up and doing a backflip. I mean, they won’t be doing that anymore because that will have run its course. Look, everything comes back to story. Shakespeare is still Shakespeare because story rules. It’ll come back to that.”

Ten nights before Battleground, the 882nd edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown and the last SmackDown before next Tuesday’s WWE Draft came to you from the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI. Over the past few months, we have seen vignettes during RAW and SmackDown featuring Darren Young and WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund with Backlund vowing to “make Darren Young great again” and, this past Monday night on RAW, that proclamation would take one big step towards becoming a reality as Darren Young did the improbable by winning a big battle royal to become the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Championship as Darren Young will challenge The Miz for the Intercontinental Title a week from Sunday at Battleground! With the biggest opportunity of his career coming up at Battleground, Darren Young and his mentor Bob Backlund would be on SmackDown as the new #1 Contender would join Intercontinental Champion The Miz and his wife Maryse on Miz TV. What will Darren Young have to say about becoming the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title? What will The Miz have to say about defending the title against Darren Young?

WWE NXT Spoilers For Episodes Airing In July And August

Game of Thrones: What to expect from Season 7?

Another season of Game of Thrones has ended, and with the dust of the Sept settled, and the blood and muck drying on the fields of Winterfell, what can we expect from the next season of George RR Martin’s fantasy epic?

Season six gave us a lot of answers: Jon has been confirmed as Lyanna Stark’s son, Benjen Stark is still alive (so to speak), Cersei is the Mad Queen, Daenerys crosses the Narrow Sea, and winter is finally here. Thanks to the show’s stellar finale, The Winds of Winter, everyone is in their new positions for the shows final act; and with the confirmation that there is only 13 episodes left before the show comes to a close, no one should get too comfortable. Let’s get started.

Winter is Here

After six seasons, and so many Stark promises, winter has finally come. While this is good news for fans itching for “The Long Night” it means that the show’s production has been moved back. Instead of premiering in April like all the past seasons, Season 7 will land later in 2017 due to the effect winter has on the show’s sunnier locations. That’s the bad news. The good news is the wealth of storytelling opportunities winter brings. The show, and its fans, according to Old Nan, have been Summer children. We have no idea what a harsh winter would do to Westeros. What it does mean is that as winter comes, the White Walkers come with it.

Bran and the Night King

game-thrones-bran-night-king-whitewalkers

Bran, or Bran Exposition, as I like to call him is inexorably linked to the White Walkers. In season six highlight The Door, the Night King put his mark on Bran in order to breach the cave of the Three Eyed Raven. Bran’s mistake cost the lives of the Raven, the presumed last of the Children of the Forest, and our beloved Hodor. It makes sense that the Night King’s brand is still in effect, after all it took Benjen to save Bran and Meera from the wight’s who were still following. At the end of the season Benjen told Bran that ancient runes and spells, were carved into the wall, meaning the dead could not pass. The dead also couldn’t breach the Raven cave. Does the mark of the Night King mean the White Walkers can pass the wall? Could Bran be the one responsible for letting these creatures in?

The King in the North

game-of-thrones-s6-ep9-kit-harington-sophie-turner-jon-snow-sansa-stark

If the White Walkers do get through, and Castle Black falls (which it will, lets hope Ed can get away), the North will be the first to invaded by the dead. Luckily we have a new King of the North in Jon Snow, let’s hope he does better than the last King. If Jon gets a wedding invite I hope he burns it. It’s not just White Walkers that Jon has to deal with. As he told Sansa, the Starks of Winterfell have a lot of enemies, even some they wouldn’t expect. After all Sansa was passed over to be ruler of Winterfell, a title that even Jon thought she deserved. As Jon is proclaimed king she shares a loaded look with Littlefinger. Could Sansa, hardened by the brutality she has suffered over the years try and usurp Jon’s position? Or will se take up Littlefingers offer and try and scheme their way to the Iron Throne? There’s also the matter of Littlefingers comeuppance. This man has sewed chaos through the Seven Kingdoms since the show began. His rival Vary’s put it perfectly: Littlefinger would burn everything down if he thought he could be king of the ashes. It was Littlefinger that betrayed Ned, something Jon and Sansa don’t seem to be aware of. He caused the event that started the whole mess in motion all the way back in season one. The death of Jon Arryn, the very thing that sent Ned to King’s Landing in the first place, was orchestrated by Littlefinger, as we found out in season four. He’s playing the longest of long games, but can he win?

Spot Arya

game-thrones-s6-e8-maisie-williams-arya-stark

The Winds of Winter saw the return of Arya to Westeros as she avenged her mother, and brother, by killing Walder Frey, after she fed him his two sons. Since escaping King’s Landing in season one Arya has been a wild card, going from captor, to captor, to faceless murder cult. Now that she’s back home will she continue to cross names off her list, a list that includes Cersei and the Mountain, or will she return to Winterfell? At the very least, it will be fun to try an guess who are is disguised as from scene to scene. Another appetizing possibility is her coming across the Brotherhood again and her old friend the Hound. Sandor Clegane is another wildcard within the Game of Thrones universe, and the Lord of Light seems to have plans for him, as he does Jon. Whatever happens, it would be a treat for fans to see Arya and the Hound together again, as Maisie Williams, and Rory McCann has great chemistry as both friends and enemies.

Queen’s Landing

game-of-thrones-s6-e10-peter-dinklage-emilia-clarke-tyrion-lannister-daenerys-targaryen-3

Dany’s finally sailing west to retake the Iron Throne, a throne occupied by someone a lot more dangerous than her, dragons included. Cersei is the queen of the Seven Kingdoms once again ? but this time there is no man beside her. Cersei’s arc has been electrifying to watch as her actions have robbed her of her children, her love for them as Tyrion pointed out was her only redeeming quality. Now she is queen of a populace who despise her, and she them. Add to that Jamie’s return to the women he loves, the women who caused the death of his children, and in blowing up the Sept (and everyone in and around it) recreated the action in which he killed the Mad King to prevent.

A reckoning is coming for Cersei, as the witch said: she will be overthrown by someone younger and more beautiful than herself. the odds seem to favour Dany, with three dragons, the unsullied, the Iron fleet, support from three great houses (Tyrell, Martell, and Greyjoy), and Tyrion at her side, Cersei might not be on the throne for long. There is a spanner in the works though: both Dany and Bran have had visions of a destroyed throne room and a layer of snow on the Iron Throne. What this could mean is that if the Starks (ice) and Dany (fire) fail, then the Iron throne could belong to the Night King.

Game of Thrones: What to expect from Season 7?

Preacher S01E07: He Gone – Jessie’s no longer one of the good guys

Now that we’re going into the final part of Preacher’s first season, it’s easier to see what this show is really about. The pilot, and second episode, would have us believe that Preacher was going to be a high concept adventure show, full of creative action set pieces, coffin black humour, and larger than life characters. Since those first two episodes the show has kept two of those aspects. There’s a slight whiff of budgetary concerns over the reason there’s been less action than first thought, but in its place we have been given a, slightly askew, study of three characters (four if you count Eugene) who once prided themselves as being outsiders, but are now looking for a connection.

preacher-poster

Why else would Cassidy stick around Annville, become hopelessly in love with Tulip after one eventful encounter, and be the worst (and this week, the best) surrogate for Jessie’s conscience? Why else would Tulip stick around Annville, help out at the church, and put her plans for vengeance on pause as she waits for Jesse? Finally, why else would Jesse stick around Annville?

He Gone finally gives us some clues to Jesse’s connection to, as Diamond Joe Quimby would put it: this jerk-water burg. Last week’s excellent Sundowner ended with Jesse hitting rock bottom, using the word of Genesis to send Eugene to hell. A slip of the tongue, or hubris? Now that he’s hit rock bottom he spends the entire episode rolling around in it. Instead of trying to deal with what he’s done to Eugene, Jesse goes ahead with his plan to cure the town, and in a very neat piece of direction, in an episode full of them, he walks out of the church as the light from under the door transforms into a cross as he passes through. This is an action that defiantly says “damn the consequences, this is surely Gods plan”. Except when he has the undivided attention of his flock, both inside and outside the church thanks to the nifty new PA system, he holds back. Sure he tells everyone to serve God, but his words don’t have the power of Genesis behind them, and now the rot starts to set in. As this very long day continues, full of bible plays, and hash browns with vanilla extract (more on that later), all of Jesse’s plans go sour.

Just like last weeks episode, He Gone is concerned with communication and the power of words, and their effect on who hears them. Everyone was talking last week, but no one was communicating. A few wrong words sent Eugene to hell and, as week see this week, Jesse’s got a bad history with this.

It turns out Jesse blames himself for his father’s murder because, after his father sends a young Tulip into foster care, Jesse prays that God kill him. As if right on que his father dies at the hand of someone who has the same tattoo on his arm that Jessie has on his back in the present. In Jesse’s mind he’s done the same thing again, damned someone he cared for through a few angry, but powerful, words.

At the end of this episode everyone seemingly knows where they stand but it’s Jesse’s guilt and judgement that gets them there. Tulip, who enjoys a free-running sequence in order to get her uncle’s pants back, continues to help out at the church, and rebuke Cassidy’s advances. She’s here for Jesse, and Jesse makes clear, at an uncomfortable dinner in which The Big Lebowski is dragged through the mud again, that he doesn’t want her.?

Cassidy finally reveals his supernatural origins in a typically weird scene that begins with him hitting Jesse with a fire extinguisher. Cassidy saw what happened to Eugene, and after Jesse’s half-hearted attempt to justify his rash behaviour, Cassidy proves that Jesse is not fit to decide who is judged by walking into the sun and setting himself on fire. It’s unclear exactly what happens to Cassidy, but it’s safe to assume that Jesse saved him thus proving Cassidy’s point.

preacher-dominic-cooper-jesse-custer-3

Now to the case of the vanilla extract which, as it turns out, is very flammable. It’s quite fitting, especially for this show, that something so mundane as a cooking screw-up perfectly encapsulates the philosophical problem of its lead character. The power of Genesis has given Jesse an opportunity to be one of the good guys, a mantra that has an all new meaning after the circumstances of his father’s death are revealed. Tulip keeps saying that Jesse is really a bad man, but he’s been trying so hard to be good. You could even say that he is trying to be vanilla. But his best intentions go up in flames, just like those hash browns, with Jesse frozen in contemplation over the sins he has committed. The path to hell is paved with good intentions, intentions just as flammable as that vanilla extract.

This is particularly felt through Eugene’s absence, whether it’s his empty room, or the empty seat his father keeps for him in church. Sure he shot the Loach’s daughter, and then himself, but his path? to redemption was on his own terms. In the last few weeks Jesse took that path away from him with an easy fix, and then damned him when Eugene confronted him. The penny has dropped for Jesse. Despite the fact that he still won’t give Genesis up, he is beginning to repent for what he’s done to Eugene. Although, ripping up the floorboards, and trying to dig into hell yelling “come back” seems like another accident waiting to happen.

8/10 He Gone doesn’t have the fireworks of last? week’s? episode, but the way this episode, and the show itself, is tearing their hero down has to be commended. Now with Quincannon on the warpath, and Jesse turning a corner, the end of this first season is looking to be an exciting prospect.
