Well, in DVD form at least! New interview material with Eric Bischoff features in the first teaser trailer for WWE’s “Eric Bischoff – Sports Entertainment’s Most Controversial Figure” documentary, put out today by WWEDVD.co.uk ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray release later this year.
He’s joined by a handful of other interviewees now confirmed for the Bischoff documentary including Stone Cold Steve Austin, Diamond Dallas Page, Chris Jericho, and Booker T.
The trailer and official synopsis for the “Eazy E” DVD/Blu-ray, which is due to hit stores on June 7th across the United States and on June 13th in the United Kingdom, follow below.
Arguably the most controversial figure to ever step foot in the industry, Eric Bischoff is responsible for some of the most revolutionary moments in sports-entertainment history.
From creating the nWo, to battling WWE as the figurehead of WCW during The Monday Night War, to being one of the most-hated personalities in both WCW and WWE, Eric Bischoff knew how to get under his rival’s skin while creating his own in your face brand of controversy.
Relive all of Eric Bischoff’s greatest moments and hear stories from the man himself and see why he was appropriately named “The King of Controversy”.

This one’s incoming on DVD and Blu-ray in April (pre-orders available) – the same month WWE will release their first-ever documentary set on the Dudley Boyz, titled “Straight Outta Dudleyville”.
There are no more WWE DVDs coming out this month and we’re still about 2 weeks away from Royal Rumble 2016, however one treat to look forward to is “YouShoot: RVD” this Tuesday!
Here’s a first look at the filming of the Kayfabe Commentaries shoot and an initial synopsis.
YouShoot returns this month with RVD’s episode, and for a guy who starts the show saying he’s going to stay in a positive place about people in the business…it doesn’t last all that long after being asked about a few of them. RVD is awesome in what will be a classic YouShoot!
If anything, they should include his WWF tryout tape from 1990. We only seen clips of it, but never the entire thing.
I find it hard to believe there are people out there champing at the bit to own matches involving Eric Bischoff. And I’m sure if you have The Rise and Fall of WCW and any Monday Night War releases his story in the biz is basically told. If they’re just adding parts about his personal life, well, I’m not interested, personally. The only other interesting story to be told is his time with TNA, which will understandably not be covered on this set, so I don’t see the point in this release.
might get this matches could be interesting he had a few ? on raw maybe?.
i know he had that bs match at survivor series 05 vs teddy long OY!! and raw match vs cena ?? so shrugs could be ok
Bischoff had quite a few matches in WCW and WWE. These are the ones he had and I could see majority of all (minus teaming with Hogan probably) being included:
vs. Larry Zbyszko – Starrcade 1997
& Hogan vs. DDP & Jay Leno – Road Wild 1998
vs. Ric Flair – Starrcade 1998
vs. Ric Flair – Nitro (Dec. 28, 1998)
vs. David Flair – Nitro (Jan 18, 1999)
vs. David Arquette – Nitro (Apr 24, 2000)
& Jeff Jarrett vs. DDP & David Arquette – Thunder (Apr 25, 2000)
vs. Terry Funk – Nitro (June 5, 2000)
vs. Jim Ross – RAW (Feb 17, 2003)
vs. Stone Cold – No Way Out 2003
vs. Trish Stratus – RAW (Apr 28, 2003)
vs. Shane McMahon – RAW (Aug 4, 2003)
vs. Kane – RAW (Aug 11, 2003)
vs. Shane McMahon – Summerslam 2003
& Molly Holly vs. Lita & Matt Hardy – RAW (Nov 17, 2003)
vs. Vince McMahon – RAW (Feb 23, 2004)
vs. Eugene – Taboo Tuesday 2004
vs. John Cena – RAW (Oct 3, 2005)
vs. Teddy Long – Survivor Series 2005
I bet most or everything Bischoff has to say will all be fabricated. I’ll skip this set!
I am absolutely getting this no matter what is on it. Huge fan of Bischoffs era.
The only real great angle I want to hear more about, is him been hiring as RAW GM.. I don’t know if it was rumored in advance that he would work for Vince back then in 2002, but for me it is still one of the all time greatest OMG-moments in WWE history.
It would be real nice to hear about..or even shown footage if such exists..of what happend backstage moments before he is presented as the Little Brother of Satan, courtesey of JR’s great comment from the OMG countdown release.
I have read his book, and I don’t think there is anything on this DVD that isn’t covered in his book. The match selection will probably suck.
If WWE want to do more non-wrestler DVDs, they should do one on Jim Cornette. They can fill it with Midnight Express matches.
I am passing on Eric set, he does not have any memorable matches/he barely wrestles
People that are basing the Bischoff DVD on his matches are complete fools…Bischoff was not a wrestler, what do you expect? If anything this will follow the Heyman DVD, where it will be the documentary, promos/segments and few matches. The matches are just an added bonus and should not be taken serious.
Its funny people are basing Bischoff’s legacy on his matches…if anything he should be remembered as the only guy that went head-to-head with WWE and nearly bankrupted them, which would never be duplicated today.
Who cares if he barely wrestles or didn’t have memorable matches…he wasn’t a wrestler einstein.
I respect what he has done in this business, no doubt about that. But when I buy WWE DVDs it’s mainly for the matches.
Exactly, that is why I will be passing on the set
