Recently, Eric Bischoff posted on his blog a rant towards the WWE. His comments caused a slew of responses. Some are more on the PC side, and others a bit more opinionated.

I happened to catch a response from the Honky Tonk Man on his website in regards to Bischoff's comments.

In usual fashion, the Honky Tonk Man was not afraid to speak his mind. He ripped into Eric and called him out on his BS. I think he took it a little to easy on him personally. He was spot on with everything he had to say though.

This is what he had to say in regards to Eric Bischoff's comments:


Eric Bischoff calls the WWE youth movement a flop!? My what a short memory you have Eric. In 2000 you and Vince Russo called anyone over 35 (with the exception of Hogan) a non draw as you killed WCW. Ouch!

My reply is simple, if no one is watching WWE, how in the hell do they draw 75,000 people to Mania and demolish TNA in the ratings each week. WWE must be doing something right!

You bash the internet wrestling community yet post comments directly aimed at them and the sites you obviously visit. Don't be a mark for yourself Eric!

If wrestling fans, reporters, or anyone else want to talk TNA, WWE, ROH or any other wrestling show, it's their right to do so. It's called free speech.
