WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has exclusively learned that penciled into WWE’s 2016 Home Video schedule right now is a potential Eric Bischoff DVD and Blu-ray set – complete with a documentary portion on the former President of World Championship Wrestling.

The news comes during a special “Nitro Week” on the WWE Network which features more than 2 hours of Bischoff-themed programming and a countdown of Monday Nitro’s top 10 moments.

Going off a recent WWE DVD Survey issued by the company to select fans in order to gauge interest in future Home Video projects, we know that this Eric Bischoff DVD and a “Greatest Rivalries: Eric Bischoff vs. Vince McMahon” DVD have both been under consideration.

It appears that the Bischoff documentary is the more likely to be produced given today’s update, however as of now the title is still “pending talent involvement”, presumably by the man himself.

    Eric Bischoff is on my list of wanted documentaries. So I’m happy this is on WWE’s schedule.

  2. Kenny says:

    I was surprised to see so many people vote FOR a Bischoff doc. He’s been such an easy target for angry wrestling fans that I was sure my ‘yes’ vote would be in the minority.

    I’d be more than willing to pay for a doc on Bischoff. This is a no-brainer to me.

  3. Brad Attitude says:

    I like the Bischoff vs McMahon dvd idea but not the Bischoff dvd. The man already has his own book which should be good enough. He might’ve been controversial but it’s not like he was a creative genius like Paul Heyman or like a Vince McMahon.

  4. John says:

    This is a easy pass just like the Paul Heyman set

  5. josh says:

    I would like to see a Bischoff dvd, although it depends on what’s going to be on it. I’d like to see in depth interviews with Bischoff and Flair regarding their rivalry from the late 90’s when Flair got sued by the company.

  6. Foley is Good says:

    on the fence with this one. Though Bischoff is important obviously I would rather have Booker T or Goldust. Or a new Rhodes Family one. Also liked someones suggestion on another post about a bluray on gimmicks done in the style of the True Giants release.

  7. Mark Markson says:

    This doesn’t interest me at all. When it comes to wrestling DVDs, what is most important to me, is the matches. Didn’t find the Paul Heyman set all that fun, due to the lack of good matches.

    If WWE want to do a DVD set on a non-wrestler, I’d prefer one on Jim Cornette. Because you could fill it with Midnight Express matches. But Cornette doesn’t seem that positive towards WWE, so I doubt he’d want to take part in such a release.

  8. Mf says:

    Waste of a DVD set , the guy didn’t wrestle.And Andre the giant fans still dont have a decent DVD set ! Shaking my head

  9. RK Morton says:

    I wouldn’t mind a Bischoff doc. Just let him be himself. I would ask for it not to have much of a WWE slant, but I know better…

  10. WCW FOREVER says:

    Eric had a handful of matches that I can remember, which are….

    Vs. Larry Zbyszko (WCW Starrcade ’97)

    Vs. Ric Flair (WCW Starrcade ’98)

    Vs. Ric Flair (WCW Nitro, Dec. ’98) (On Nitro vol.1 dvd)

    & Hollywood Hogan Vs. DDP & Jay Leno (Road Wild ’98) (NWO Revolution dvd)

    Vs. Stonecold (No Way Out 03)

    Vs. Teddy Long (I’m thinking Taboo Tuesday 2005, but I could be wrong.)

  11. GEOLINK says:

    A full Booker T documentary Blu-ray would be nicer to have before a Bischoff one.

  12. RabidHeat says:

    It will be an incompletele life-story if they don’t even touch on how his regime destroyed TNA (which they obviously won’t).

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      maybe, if Vince buys TNA, then we could get that angle too, sure.. -lol-

    • Roland Smitts says:

      So many things they feel they have to tiptoe around. May as well not even bother doing a Bischoff doc. What will be left, 3 Minute Warning?

      • attitude.era.4life says:

        “…did I just hear myself say: 3 minutes!?” -lol-

        • Roland Smitts says:

          Lol I always say, they shoulda had Bischoff giving away Smack down results on Raw.

          • attitude.era.4life says:

            LOL now, that’s creativity inspired by great history..

            Loved that Ruthles Agression Era as much as the Attitude Era.. the battle between Steph and Eric had some over the top funny segments, like when Steph got called to the office to talk to Vince..and its Eric with the Vince mask on.. -lol-

  13. me says:

    The hits just keep on coming. First Dudleys, then OMG ECW Moments, and now Eric Bischoff. The only problem will be if they can show Hogan. He was a big part of Bischoff’s career so that would be a big loss.

  14. attitude.era.4life says:

    I’m wondering: is there material enough to fill 2 bluray discs, clocking in the standard 8 hours?

    Let’s say there’s a 2 hours main doc, with around 30 minutes of extra stories.. that leaves us with 5 hours 30 minutes..lets say 6 hours.

    Eric had some cool Black and White NwO vignettes..and some hilarious commentary segments from Nitro… but..can they really fill that with 5-6 hours???

    The Heyman release is a masterpiece in my mind, and the McMahon release from 2006 is entertaining..but, I really have my doubt about this one..

    • me says:

      They had enough for Heyman

      • attitude.era.4life says:

        Absolutely..Heyman does and did promos that could fill another Bluray set on him for that matter.. but, Eric..?? naaaah..not likely.. his AWA days the little I know, was him holding a microphone and doing interviews..

        The obvious very good stuff is from the NwO and his WWE time from 2002 – 2005, with, if I remember right, only 1 match, and thats the Austin one from No Way Out 2003…which is s-it.

        No, I am having a hard time figuring out, how they will make this a multiple discs release. Am I overlooking something?

  15. Roland Smitts says:

    If they’re planning a Bischoff doc & Blu ray set, they better make amends with Hogan FAST. No way this works without any Hogan mentions or footage.

    • David says:

      True..but don’t think it will be an issue because Hogan was mentioned and shown on the Legends with JBL featuring Bischoff but just depends how long ago it was filmed.

      • Roland Smitts says:

        Got it. It would be useles to try & do a Bischoff set without him…hell a LOT of historical topics would be largely incomplete without Hogan

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      naah.. they no need to..they problaly use archive material from NWO Back in Black and Hulk stil Rules sets.. have’nt completing seeint the Monday Night War volumes 1 and 2 so can not say if the Hulkster is on there, but if he is, they likely will use that too.

      • attitude.era.4life says:

        still , seeing

      • Roland Smitts says:

        Oh no don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean new interviews. I mean ceasing this hardline stance they have taken on all things Hogan, so sets like these can go unvarnished.

        • attitude.era.4life says:

          oooh.. I understand now.. 🙂

          would definitely be a ultra thin cup of tea, if Hogan as topic would not be possible.. -lol-

      • David says:

        Yeah, the recent Hogan footage on MNW Vol. 1 and 2 are from around early 2014 when he came back and looks like they filmed all his comments for various shows like Countdown, the Warrior doc, the List, etc. because you can tell his attire is the same and the background is the same. Kind of like using that decade old Bischoff footage with the RAW set in the background from 02-03 which has been on numerous DVDs until now.

        • Roland Smitts says:

          As long as they preserve Hogans place in relevant topics, I dont care if he ever comes back. Lol. Tryna retcon stuff is just insulting to fans’ intelligence. Keep him where he belongs in his place in history. All the rest of the stuff between them – telling talents not to reach out to Hogan etc. – thats between them.
