Found August 24, 2013 on Wrestling Truth:
PLAYERS: Eric Bischoff
Bischoff is not involved with recent firings: Executive Producer of Impact Wrestling Eric Bischoff, took the time to explain his role with TNA during a recent interview with SLAM! Wrestling… “My role doesn’t extend to the hiring and firing or recruiting. That’s the business side of TNA’s business, and I’m not involved in that.” “My partner Jason Hervey and I are the Executive Producers of Impact Essentially, my role is: to oversee the creative side of the production; to be involved in post-production as is necessary; to execute the creative direction and vision of each episode; to work closely with the network to make sure the TNA side of the equation understands the network’s goals; and to the liaison for TNA on the production side of things so that the network understands what our challenges are, and where we’re going, and what we’re trying to do. My involvement is really limited to the show itself. I’m not involved in many aspects of the business that the internet would suggest I’m involved in.” Bischoff has been behind some of the more positive aspects of the TNA presentation, including focusing on a backstage roving reporter instead of the “all seeing camera” technique, the UFC style sit-down interviews most recently used for Gut Check participants, and other production tweaks that have even been picked up by WWE. Bischoff also discusses the “IWC”, his online casino interests and his son Garrett in the interview. It should also be noted that Hulk Hogan is in no way in charge of anything business related for TNA, and only offers creative input rather than running the show. That being said his contract is certainly a massive expense that is obviously factored in to the recent releases. Though his on air role hasn’t translated in to ratings, the promotion feel he is important for brand awareness and brings legitimacy to the product. Spike TV are also high on him. Impact audience decreases: This week’s episode of TNA Impact Wrestling drew an average audience of 1,246,000 viewers on Spike TV, down from the previous week’s 1,319,000 number.
