WWE Smackdown Executive Producer Eric Bischoff recently made some interesting comments on the new AEW Dynamite programme. Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast alongside Conrad Thompson the former WCW President stated that he did in fact watch the first episode of Dynamite.
“I did watch it, I actually watched it twice. I think the take away for me was, the biggest thing that I saw that I liked was the crowd. That crowd was lit in every conceivable way. You could really see that crowd. They were excited to be there and they were an active part of the show.”
Bischoff elaborated further, saying “what I saw from AEW was a crowd that was intensely engaged, and from a production value standpoint, you could see it. The lighting made the audience a part of the show. That was the biggest positive I took from that show. I’m not going to critique the in-ring action or anything like that, but when I walked out of the room the first thing on my mind was, ‘Wow, that crowd made that show.'”
