Eric Bischoff Says Retribution Could Have Been Good, But Now It’s Not


During his After 83 Weeks, podcast Eric Bischoff spoke about Retribution. The controversial figure didn’t hold back on his feelings about the group and how it could have been good, but now it’s not.

“Why are they there? What’s the story? What is the inciting incident? What is the motivation? What is the reason that they’re there? …It maybe had the potential of being a good idea before it wasn’t.”

“I’ve learned this over the last 10-15 years more than I knew it at the time when I was actually in the business. Whatever storyline you’re going to launch, whatever character you’re going to launch, that angle, that story has to begin with either an inciting incident – as you would say in the film industry – or an angle, as you would refer to it probably in wrestling. But there has to be a reason for it. You have to be able to answer the question, ‘Why?’”

Retribution is just getting started so there’s still time to get it right perhaps. The angle might be getting mixed reviews so far, but we have to remember there’s some talented stars behind the masks. We’ll also have to see if they show up at Clash of Champions and reek any chaos or turn up on RAW next week.
