Eric Bischoff has appears on Jay Leno!

April 7 2002
Jay Leno - So Mr. Bischoff, why did you decide to get back into the "wrasslin business"?

Eric Bischoff - Well simply because I feel I have quite a few regrets from when I was in wcw and I feel that I need to turn over a new leaf and make the wrestling business new again.

Leno - What are those regrets?

Bischoff - Well there are quite a few but my first regret was allowing pollitics rule over wcw.And then there is the fact that I failed to create new stars and that is my biggest regret.The other regret I have is letting the nwo get too big and letting it go on way too long.

Leno - So what are you doing differently now,with your own company?

Bischoff - Well you will start to notice that acw has a much edgier product and that our young stars are going to start shinning.And some of the well known guys we have will be the ones to bring older fans to the product.I have signed all the young guys to long term contracts while guys like the rock have a short shelf life and their contracts will end by the end of the year.

Leno - Sounds like your doing a damn good job.Ok so nice talking to you and I hope to speak with you soon!
