Eric Bischoff started his move to Stamford, Connecticut yesterday with a 1,750 mile journey from Cody, Wyoming, a journey of approximately 28 hours by car.
The former WCW President and now Executive Director of the Smackdown Live brand is moving his family to Stamford for his new corporate job with WWE, a job which he says will occupy 23 hours of his day, seven days a week.
Bischoff is expected to be at next week’s Smackdown Live show where he will officially start to implement his vision for the brand moving forward. Both he and Paul Heyman, his counterpart for the Raw brand, will be reporting directly to WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
Eric has called this job the most important position of his wrestling career.
