An Audience with Eric Bischoff – Byker – 10 October 2018

During the evening with Eric, one of the topics that will be touched on is ’83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff’

Since 1984 every wrestling promoter has tried to best Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation unsuccessfully… except one, Eric Bischoff. Eric got his foot in the door with Ted Turner’s organization as a “C-Team Announcer” and a few short years later, he was President of World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Eric signed Hulk Hogan, turned a profit for the company for the very first time, started Monday Night Nitro, created the nWo, and beat Vince McMahon’s Monday Night RAW head-to-head in Monday Night Wars 83 consecutive times. 83 Weeks will take a deep dive into the highs and lows of Eric Bischoff’s unparalleled successes in the wrestling business.

Hear from the man himself, LIVE & UNCUT!

With that in mind, resident journalist Chris Pilkington’s latest article explores….

THE BEST WAY TO CARRY A CHAMPIONSHIP BELT

 You’ve toiled for years. You’ve trained day in, day out, paid your dues and against all odds you’ve made it to the dance. You worked even harder, intent on proving yourself worthy of your spot and slowly but surely worked your way up the card. One day, the boss pulled you to one side and told you what you’d been longing to hear since the day you first started running the ropes.  You’re finally winning a championship. Now comes the hard part. It’s time to make the hardest decision of your wrestling life. It’s time to decide how you’re going to wear your belt.
