Posted By James Walsh on 10/08/17


Eric Bischoff does not much like Josh Barnett's commentary on the NJPW AXS TV show. Here is their exchange.

Watching @njpwglobal on @AXSTV. @JRsBBQ is awesome. Whoever the color man is-not so much.

Not a shot. Just a fact.

Well, sorry Josh. Color commentary is not your game. https://twitter.com/abodensteiner66/status/916505327876689925

Good thing you don't sign my checks. I wonder what your angle is, or who for. Either way, looks like it is since I'm on air every Friday. https://twitter.com/EBischoff/status/916505775828213760

No angle. Just an observation. PxP should describe 'what' is happening, CC should tell us 'why' from a tech pov or character pov. https://twitter.com/JoshLBarnett/status/916584973947240449

Like when I describe how holds work & why or when I go into how wrestlers should gameplan, why certain moves are being employed, etc, etc https://twitter.com/EBischoff/status/916628104554070016

Eric-Josh is one of the best in the Game. He knows more about wrestling and fighting than anyone.

@EBischoff

That is likely true. My opinion/observation is more from a producers pov than a fans. I prefer cc'ers who provide unique insight. https://twitter.com/mmaroasted/status/916740011583664128

So my insight is not unique? No one else in pro wrestling can give my insight as none are have the dual experience I have.

@JoshLBarnett

So clearly, you don't listen to our show otherwise you'd know that I constantly tell the why and how.

Dropped in on it for the first time last night and voiced my perspective. Keep up the good work and best of luck to you! https://twitter.com/joshlbarnett/status/916815081215840256

It would have to have been of value & from an educated position to be worthwhile. An egocentric w/a hair helmet isn't moving my dial. https://twitter.com/EBischoff/status/916816573179891712
