According to PWInsider, Eric Bischoff is not backstage at tonight’s Impact Wrestling tapings. Their report mentions that he is not expected to be back with the company any time soon and it’s fair to say that a number of people within the company are happy with the development.
As of this writing, the exact reason for his absence has not been relayed. Bischoff’s duties in the company were to oversee the creative end of the company so it will be interesting to see how the shows are booked tonight without his input.
In recent months Bischoff had “stepped up” his role with the creative direction of the company and many would say that the product has taken a turn for the worse.
