During it, Bischoff talked about the direction of Austin Theory. 

“I think he’s pushing a little hard. And maybe that’s a hole that could probably go back to the very beginning because it did feel like they were, you know, strapping a rocket ship to him, and he was gonna get pushed super hard. And sometimes that works against you, the audience, the wrestling audience, at least the audience that I remember, and I think it’s probably still true. You have to earn their respect. Yeah, you can’t shortcut that all the pushes in the world won’t overcome a lack of respect from the audience. And that respect just comes with time and consistency. So I don’t know, what would I do with them? I probably took him for a year until I figured out what I really wanted to do with him. Even if it took a couple of months of character work and exploration and trying different things and bringing him back, I feel like he’s still the audience is still kind of resisting him just a little bit. He’s a talented dude. He’s got a great look. He’s in great shape. I can’t comment on his wrestling ability. I haven’t seen him wrestle that much. But he seems like a great character, but he’s just not quite hitting on all eight cylinders.”
