Ryan Rodems, the lawyer representing Sal Corrente and WrestleReunion, LLC in the recent breach of contract lawsuit against Clear Channel/Live Nation, sent the following statement into WrestleZone.com as a response to Eric Bischoff’s comments:
"It is odd that Eric Bischoff, whose well-documented incompetence caused the demise of WCW, should have any comment on the outcome of the WrestleReunion, LLC lawsuit. The expert report Bischoff submitted in this case bordered on illiteracy, and Bischoff was not even called to testify by Clear Channel/Live Nation because Bischoff perjured himself in a deposition in late-July 2009 before running out and refusing to answer any more questions regarding his serious problems with alcohol and sexual deviancy at the Gold Club while the head of WCW. To even sit in the room and question him was one of the most distasteful things I’ve ever had to do in 17 years of practicing law. In fact, we understand that Bischoff was afraid to even come to Tampa and testify because he would have to answer questions under oath for a third time about his embarrassing past.
The sad state of professional wrestling today is directly attributable to this snake oil salesman, whose previous career highlights include selling meat out of the back of a truck, before he filed bankruptcy and had his car repossessed. Today, after running WCW into the ground, Bischoff peddles schlock like "Girls Gone Wild" and reality shows featuring B-listers.
Sal Corrente, on the other hand, has always been an honorable man, and he delivered on every promise and paid every wrestler while staging the three WrestleReunion events. Unlike the cowardly Bischoff, Mr. Corrente took the stand in this case. Although his company did not prevail, Sal Corrente proved that he was man enough to fight to the finish — something Bischoff could never understand."
