In the latest edition of the Bischoff on Wrestling podcast, Eric Bischoff shares his thoughts on Dolph Ziggler winning the Intercontinental Championship at No Mercy and Sasha Banks defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Charlotte inside the Hell in a Cell.
Dolph Ziggler winning the Intercontinental Championship at No Mercy:
I think it’s great. I’ve said it before, I’ve said it enough times on this show, and I don’t want to sound ridiculous about it, but I think he’s probably one of the most underrated, um, I don’t wanna say underutilized because that implies that I know something on backstage that I don’t. I just love watching him. I think he’s a phenomenal character, a phenomenal athlete, he’s got a quick wit, he’s obviously very charismatic. I’ve watched him on, you know, news, he’s relevant, he’s just [a] bright guy. So, I’m happy for him, and I’d love to see more of him.
Sasha Banks and Charlotte competing in the first Women’s Hell in a Cell Match:
I don’t like it at all. I don’t like it. The standard for Hell in a Cell is pretty high. It physically is what it is. It’s a hardcore match. It’s an extreme match. It’s all of the above and then some. I’ve talked before about expectations and managing expectations with the audience. Sometimes you can do such a great job building something up that you forgot to remember that you also have to deliver. I am not taking anything away from either of those athletes that happen to be women. I am suggesting that the audience may not necessarily want to see that type of entertainment and that type of match out of that type of an athlete. That’s just my opinion.
