Eric Bischoff's new podcast 83 Weeks has been a smashing success, which means it's time for Awesome Truth to capitalize on Bischoff-mania and discuss his book Controversy Creates Cash. Eric pulls no punches in revisiting what led to the death of WCW, but can we really trust his memories? Are his assessments of Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Bret Hart honest or self-serving? We debate WCW's demise and Eric's role in the downfall, along with wondering what role Vince McMahon would've played in a Bischoff-led wrestling universe.
