Fans have been trying to get Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff to debate each other about what went wrong with WCW, but one half of the potential debate isn’t interested. A fan on Twitter asked Bischoff for his take on the potential talk, and he got quite the quote from the former WCW boss. “He’s a delusional, lying, talentless piece of shit,” said Bischoff on Twitter about the former WWF and WCW writer. “He’s dead to me. I don’t debate the dead.”

Check out his full tweet below:

While Vince Russo is very much alive, this certainly kills the conversation of the two debating any time soon. After all, that’s quite the burial that Bischoff just gave New York’s finest.

Update: Vince Russo issued the following response to Eric’s remarks – 

“Looks like my Hulk Hogan / Eric Bischoff episode of “Truth with Consequences” on Westwood One Podcasts, where I discuss the impact the two had on the decline of TNA, may have upset Eric. The cold, hard truth sometimes does that to people. I’m just grateful that I’m incapable of experiencing the same hatred Eric feels towards me—towards him. I welcome the conversation if he can ever get past the grade school name calling. What is he afraid of?”
