On the latest edition of his Saturday Night Special, Chris Jericho was asked about his relationship with Eric Bischoff. Jericho put Bischoff over as a great guy and said that although they had issues in the past, he had nothing but love for the former RAW GM now:
Eric Bischoff now is a great guy. He was on the Jericho Cruise this year. Just a pleasure to be around, smart, funny. If you would have asked me what I thought of Eric Bischoff in 1998, in 1999, I would not have given him a glowing review.
If you ask me what I think of Eric Bischoff in 2020; two thumbs up, great guy, always a pleasure to be around and nothing but love for him.
Chris Jericho was brought into WCW by Eric Bischoff as part of their famed Cruiserweight Division. However, Jericho ended up leaving the company for the greener pastures of the WWE in 1999 and has gone on to cement himself as one of the greatest of all time.
