— When Eric Bischoff was rehired by WWE to lead Smackdown back in June, privately there were a number of people backstage who were “stunned” by the move and predicted that he would fail, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Most of these feelings came from people who interacted with Bischoff in TNA and none of them had “fond memories” of his work there.
— Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated noted that unlike Paul Heyman with Raw, Bischoff was never really given creative authority on Smackdown even though that was the original intention in his hiring. In the end, his directive became largely to “observe” and ultimately, he failed to “assimilate into the corporate structure of the company.” Bischoff had moved to Stamford and was living in an apartment while working for WWE but with his dismissal, it is expected that he will relocate back to his home in Wyoming.
