Superstars react to ‘The Bisch’

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – July 15, 2002 – Veteran World Wrestling Entertainment Superstars have seen just about every plot twist imaginable, but a lot of jaws still gaped open backstage as Vince McMahon and Eric Bischoff hugged beneath the TitanTron at the Continental Airlines Arena.

Since Bischoff arrived at the arena mere moments before he appeared on RAW, nearly everyone backstage Monday had no idea that the controversial former head of Ted Turner’s WCW was about to make his WWE debut. Although several WWE Superstars and staff members declined to comment on their new co-worker, many offered WWE.com a wide array of opinions, ranging from shock and wariness to excitement and hopefulness.

Triple H
I hope he doesn’t run us out of business too. His stuff was very innovative, right up until the point he went out of business. It’s got people talking. That’s good for business. A lot of people are talking. Believe me, he starts to screw up our product and I’ll be the first one to kick his ass.
