Eric Bischoff On Who Was The Most Difficult Star He Worked With

Speaking on a recent episode of his 83 Weeks podcast on AdFreeShows, Eric Bischoff was asked who he taught was the hardest person he ever worked with, and the Hall of Famer named Bill Goldberg.

“That’s a tough one. I think on a consistent basis; it would have been Bill Goldberg. Not necessarily in a bad way. Just that, Bill was a very intense person. Emotional, and didn’t have a lot of experience, and was pretty uncomfortable in a pro wrestling environment when he first got there. So, as a result, you take someone who is an intense personality, a very intense personality, a bit of a perfectionist, who puts a lot of pressure on himself,” Bischoff said.

Eric was the head of WCW during Goldberg’s run with the company. WCW signed Goldberg after his NFL career ended. From September 1997 until December 1998, Goldberg went undefeated in the company, crushing icons like Hollywood Hogan, and Curt Hennig en route to earning an unprecedented record of 173-0.

During his time with WCW, Goldberg became the WCW United States Heavyweight Champion and the WCW World Heavyweight Champion. He was also a one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion (with Bret Hart), making him along with Hart the fifth WCW Triple Crown winner.

Goldberg has not been seen on WWE TV at Crown Jewel 2021. Goldberg’s heated rivalry with Lashley finally came to an end when the two superstars gave everything they had in a No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere match. In the end, it was the 54-year-old veteran who stood tall.
