“The other thing that lit my fuse and inspired me was a catalyst for my response when Tony said, ‘We’re at WCW 1996 level. We’re at that stage.’ No you’re not. You’re not even close dude.” - Eric Bischoff (via 83 Weeks)

“You’re not even a distant number 2 to where we were at in 1996. “in 1996, in every measurable way that a human being can realistically measure something, not spin something, but measure something, WCW Nitro was defeating WWE in a real head to head competition,” - Eric Bischoff

Obviously he's not wrong in that today's WWE is a billion dollar publicly traded company but that shouldn't stop Tony from doing what he thinks is right to create interest in his product.

TRUTH. It’s not competition. It’s a really bad cosplay. Until they actually go head-to-head on a weekly basis against Raw and SD, and beat them like Nitro did to Raw for 86 weeks, everything they do is moot.

It's not '96 we can only use today's metrics and when it comes to ticket sales, ppv buys, ratings, and show quality AEW is top tier
