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. 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. Join Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson as they explore a new topic every Monday morning at 6AM Eastern!
