    where’s Conrad….
    I was an avid listener to call of Conrad’s podcasts but SHEEEEESH WHERE ARE YA PAL?!?! Just cancel the podcasts if you can’t do them anymore bro. We don’t wanna hear Paul for hours and hours he sounds like a terrible commercial

    Ego
    Conrad: Here is something good that happened during your time in WCW. Tell me about it. Eric: (rambles on for 10 minutes) Conrad: Here is something bad that happened during your time in WCW. Tell me about it. Eric: I don’t remember.

    I like the show but…
    As mentioned several times before, the amount of ads are a complete turnoff. I get why ads are necessary but it’s overkill. Also the “let’s track it”, I have the network… if I wanted to listen to the actual show I’d watch it. I’m here to listen to Eric.
  • ShawnJohn22
    Great but…
    Take it easy on the commercials!! It’s abusive how many there are.
  • Shortsout
    Do you own or rent your podcast?
    Of course you do! You to can ruin your interviews and ratings by pimping Geico every 2 minutes. Fans complain? Too bad! Great show ruined with constant advertisements.
  • kyle kpk

    Enough Meltzer rants!
    Decent podcast but the constant Meltzer rants drag down the quality of every show. Anyone can go on YouTube and hear Eric and Dave speak in a familiar tone in the 90s.

    Phlegm
    Eric must eat some greasy meals before the show. Majority of the time he’s always clearing his throat. For crying out loud, use the mute button!
  • RobB97
    Waste of time
    Every episode consists of: 45% Eric whining about what Dave Meltzer wrote 20% Eric clearing his throat 35% ads interrupting sentences (or ads interrupting ads)

    Can’t Miss
    The best podcast for insights into the business of wrestling I’ve ever listened to. Always hilarious to hear Conrad hold Bischoffs feet to the fire as well.

    83 Weeks
    Best way to start Monday’s off is listening to 83 Weeks. Eric & Conrad are great!
  • Jfjfhgu
    Where’s Conrad?
    I understand you are a busy guy and Paul’s a good dude but when you aren’t available, just don’t put out a show. No one wants to listen to Howard Stern if there’s no Howard. The best part about your podcasts is your back and forth with Eric, Bruce, etc.
  • Free $25!!
    Thanks Guys
    Great to hear Eric’s voice and Conrad you’re a great interviewer. Eric going nuts about the orange on the plate at Denny’s was hysterical. But thanks guys reminds me of being a kid and fond memories. Keep up the good work!

    5 STAR! 83 Weeks is Awesome!
    I’m 42 years old and been a wrestling fan the majority of my life. I’ve been a listener of 83 Weeks for a month or so and I absolutely love it…! Takes me back to the “good Ol’ days” of when professional Wrestling was so great. Conrad and Eric have good chemistry and so entertaining. I highly recommend this podcast. Eric gets fired up at times which is favorite… LOL! You’ll love it! Chad Earnest

    Feet to the Fire
    Only 2 episodes down and I love how Conrad holds his feet to the fire. I hope that continues. Love to hear the old stores.
  • ProperKROE
    I’m here too…
    Satisfy Eric’s ego!
  • Bigdinwi
    Best of the best
    Between Bruce and Eric my weeks are complete. Bruce has been slacking lately but Eric more then makes up for it.
  • JT298929
    My perception has changed!
    As a mid to late 90’s wrestling fan, I used to think Eric Bischoff was self centered and arrogant. When I saw that he had a podcast, and it’s called 83 weeks, I thought he was trying to stay relevant despite being a washed up has been. To remind people “I beat WWE for 83 weeks” almost 20 years ago seemed shallow. After getting excited about wrestling again due to AEW, I started listening to 83 weeks. Man, was I wrong. The fact that I disliked Bischoff so much was due to his excellent ability to be a heel and play a role flawless. I now enjoy and look forward to Eric’s podcast to learn so much about an era of wrestling that I love as well as the television industry in general.

    Money mark
    Fat money mark who bought his way into the industry, attempts to speak like “the boys” (unearned), constantly talks about himself/family/wealth. Thompson finishes the actual subjects’ sentences and is a braggadocious hillbilly. Oh, and there’s no podcast in existence with as many commercials as his. Greed, sloth, gross. Between these things, his crush on Dave Meltzer and Jim Cornette, and his desperate wannabe attempt to be what he’s not, I’d steer clear. What wrestling relic will he poach and exploit next? If you actually pay for these shows on Patreon , I’m laughing at you. 0/10
  • Culbyculbertson
    Domination!

  • BlackJackRob21
    Best inside wrestling podcast around!

  • Andre FDSM

  • cdavis8547
    Great podcast
    Great job guys, keep it up
  • Jns213
    Ads
    The Geico ads are killing every show, Conrad.
  • Morrisonscott38
    Eh??
    Bruce beating Easy E how? Conspiracy it is! Great show
  • M Huber
    Bischoff is a dude
    This wasn’t always my favorite podcast in the Conrad family. However, Eric Bischoff’s commitment to sharing the nitty gritty details on the business of professional wrestling has captivated me. I look forward to this show the most every week. I would highly recommend it to any wrestling fan who loves the business.
  • Jeff kressin
    From Conrad’s comment on the people on in there rooms from today’s show 8/16
    I’m a 37 years that’s listens to all your podcast. I’m on my third home I owe that I just purchased in July, so there Eric lol. Great shows always enjoy your shows listening every week while I’m at work in a body shop
  • Falloon
    83 ADS
    For every two hour show there are 83 ads. I like all of Conrad’s podcast but he is turning into a cash grab junkie.

    No Vaccine
    Don’t want to hear your plug for a vaccine here. Abortion killed 42.6 million babies last year and you probably support the “my choice my body” screams of liberals. If you respect them murdering babies then respect my choice to not get an FDA unapproved shot in my body. Stick to wrestling please.
  • joe52983
    Love the show but....
    These ads are too much please stop or maybe just one or two
  • JAWcuts
    The only way to binge Nitro!
    I’m currently binging my way through Nitro from the 1st episode, pair with 83 weeks for the ultimate all encompassing entertainment experience. I wish I could give this podcast 10 stars!!
  • r0mega
    Best of adfreeshows bunch!
    I showed up for Bruce but ended up staying for Eric. I find 83 Weeks to be the most insightful and fascinating deep dive on pro wrestling you could ask for. Conrad is the most well researched host in all of podcasting and Eric pulls no punches. This show is a must listen for all wrestling fans.
  • kyeely24
    Great show
    This has got to be one of the best podcasts out there for wrestling fans. This is one of my favorite things to listen to to pass time. I love the level of detail Conrad and Eric get into about their topics. and I even like their side conversations and topics that come up. I’ve always thought for wrestling fans once you find out wrestling is a work one of two thinks happen. You either lose interest or you get more interested and want to learn more about the business. I’m in the later category and love to learn all that I can of the behind the scenes information. If you like hearing backstage information and how things were developed this is a great podcast for you.
  • Robbie the pooh
    5 star podcast
    I love listening to Eric give his perspectives coupled with Conrad’s curating. Eric insights on the wrestling business and audiences with the stories are must hear. Please keep going!
  • mr lee34
    Scott Hall episode
    The Scott Hall episode of 83 weeks is my favorite episode of all time. Scott is a great man who is enjoyable to listen to. I’m glad to have heard Scott tell his story and help make the NWO an even bigger story. Keep up the great work.
  • Robert Blomker
    Always a great show
    Love listening to Eric and Conrad go through one of the best times in wrestling! Love when they dabble into today’s product as well as the stuff in the last few years! It’s always so much fun!
  • Ghvftjfruhrdij
    Great show today
    I was so enthralled today during the time y’all were discussing memorabilia & possible new shows. It was fun hearing Eric’s creative juices get flowing. Fun listen today.

    I gave it 5 stars even though it wasn’t in the Tokyo dome. Eric is a story telling sob and Conrad has all the great questions. Definitely a top 5 all time podcast
  • big_mike78
    Love the details and minutiae
    I really enjoy the deep dive aspect of this pod. Rarely if ever do you get the kind of fiscal and business analysis that Eric can provide. I also enjoy Eric getting worked into a fervor regarding D.M. It’s fun to listen to Eric break down Meltzer’s critiques and opinions with experience and just plain common sense. It’s the critical thinking that Eric puts into every episode which keeps me listening.
  • Jimmy Rock Street
    Details.
    This podcast is a great example of when you ask someone what the time is, and they tell you how to make the watch! I love it!
  • masterkinglordgod
    Great podcast

  • Perdiction
    Masters in Business and Management
    You will learn more about business, marketing, and advertising from listening to 83 Weeks that you will for almost any University! Truly enjoyable and extremely educational!!
  • rclear500
    Context
    Started listening as a wrestling fan, kept listening because I just like Eric
  • das5167
    E/C
    This is one of the best podcast out there. Eric brings so much intellect to the wrestling business and inside knowledge of the business. Definitely worth the price of admission
  • Ed1032
    Great show!
    I enjoy all of Conrad’s podcasts and this is one of the best. Eric is open and shares all his life experiences and tries to keep a positive attitude with history and current events, but is honest and sometimes the anger comes out. You can’t ask for more than that.
  • @Joe Negron
    Oh it’s true
    I have the best podcast ever , I and my ( partner) talk and talk about how awesome AEW is , for for all you guys wondering if I Joe Negron get lockjaw , the answer is no , ( obviously ) Please send me $$ I really need it Smart wrestling fan .com
  • simmonsa0126
    Informative and Entertaining
    Conrad and Eric will ALWAYS take you “DEEP into the weeds” of the business of Pro Wrestling!! They not only inform you of the “Ins and Outs” of the business past; they give their takes on the current happenings as well!!! Always entertaining and enlightening myself with fresh perspective!!! This and Tony Schiavone’s podcast (What Happened When) are my two favorites!!! Thank You Conrad and Eric!!! May this last FOREVER!!
  • AFan2621
    Too many ads
    You have way too many ads as long as 45 seconds to 2 minutes...PER AD! No one cares
  • wcwrulz
