Kevin Sullivan responds to Eric Bischoff’s appearance on Ric Flair’s podcast
On a recent podcast with Mister Saint Laurent, former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan talked about a clause in Ray Traylor’s contract that entitled him to a PPV bonus if buys reached a certain level, whether Traylor was on the show or not.
Sullivan explained that the level of buys required far exceeded what any event was achieving, but PPV buys increased after WCW signed Hulk Hogan and suddenly Traylor was receiving $25,000 for every PPV. Sullivan spoke about being pressured to feature Traylor on those events to justify the bonus.
Eric Bischoff then appeared on Ric Flair’s podcast and refuted the story when asked about it. “It’s BS for the most part. That’s the first time I’ve ever heard that Ray Traylor had any sort of special clause in his agreement.”
On the new episode of MSL & SULLIVAN, available every Friday on MLWradio.com, Kevin responded to Bischoff’s claim that Traylor didn’t have a bonus clause in his contract. “I don’t want to say that Eric’s not telling the whole truth, but I knew Bubba as a very very good friend and I heard that also from Hogan, so I’m going to say that he did.”
