Eric Bischoff discusses the chances of Bryan Danielson coming to TNA, compares MMA and professional wrestling, and comments on Paul Heyman to TNA rumors
Jul 9, 2010 - 09:51 AM


By Rich Twilling

Monday Night Mayhem with Eric Bischoff
Hosts: The Big Mosh, Jimmy Noonan, and "The Chairman of the Board," Todd Vincent
Airs every Monday at 6:00 P.M. (CT)
Show available at MondayNightMayhem.com.


-Bischoff on Bryan Danielson possibly coming to TNA: "I guess a lot of that would have to do with Bryan Danielson and whether he would want to come work for TNA. I don't know that answer to that, and I haven't had any conversations with him. I don't have an idea about what Bryan Danielson is thinking about in terms of his next move. I'm sure if TNA wanted Bryan and he was interested in working for TNA, I'm sure TNA could find a way to do it, given they haven't much trouble signing other big names in the last six months or so."

-Bischoff on professional wrestling being compared to MMA: "People have a tendency to wanna compare MMA to professional wrestling, and for the life of me, I just can't figure out why. It's not even apples & oranges as I've said before, it's apples & bricks. One is a real sport & the other is scripted entertainment, and beyond that, if anyone can point out any similarities between the two and why wrestling should modify its business model based on what's happening in MMA, I would be very interested in hearing it, because last time I checked, they are two entirely different products."

-Bischoff on the Paul Heyman to TNA rumors: "I've heard the Paul Heyman rumor over the last few months, and I know that Paul has talked to Dixie so there has been some conversation, but I don't know what Paul's plans really are. I don't talk to Paul on a daily basis, and if Paul was to join TNA, I think it'll be a big asset, but I don't know what his immediate plans are."
