Eric Bischoff / Juventud Guerrera Confrontation
The Bisch vs The Juice
March 2002 - By Brad Dykens
Eric Bischoff and Juventud Guerrera had a tense confrontation, backstage at the WWA Pay Per View. Juvi came up to Bischoff and said "how's it going, boss?". Bischoff's response was something like Weren't you one of the guys who signed a petition to get me fired?, in response to what occurred after Bash at the Beach 2000. After Russo let Hogan become World Champion from an easy Jarrett defeat, Russo cut a promo on Hogan, and then declared that the REAL title match would be Booker T vs. Jeff Jarrett instead. After this incident, WCW wrestler Konnan sent around a petitition to get wrestlers to back Russo instead of Eric Bischoff. Bischoff told Juvi that he'd never forget that, to which Juvi apparently responded "But I'm still real, and I'm still the juice", to whatever that means.
Bischoff ran down the entire Vince Russo clique (such as Jeff Jarrett, etc.), or wrestlers close to Russo during late 1999 or during 2000, and said that they couldn't make it in wrestling today.
Eric Bischoff apparently told friends Earnest Miller and Ric Steiner to not sign any contracts with any of the start-up federations, like the WWA.
