Buff Bagwell Says Eric Bischoff Asked Him to Fake his Death in WCW

Feb 16, 2019 - by James Walsh

In an interview with Sitting Ringside, Buff Bagwell revealed that at one point during his time in WCW, Eric Bischoff wanted him to fake his death for a storyline, which would see him haunt WCW as a ghost. 

He said: “100% [true]. MGM Grand was the Halloween Havoc we did – the last one, if not the last Havoc, and [Bischoff] wanted me to die in a plane crash,” Bagwell stated. “I said, ‘Eric, I couldn’t get you to get the cameras in the hospital to see [me injured]. Are you kidding me?’ And so, he was gonna do it. I already called my parents and said, ‘Hey, you know, get ready for this so that I won’t scare you guys, and all that.’ I called them few and my wife, and all them to let them know, and they switched it finally to some kind of run in as, I think president Clinton with a mask or something. At the same time, he wanted me to come down like a ghost on wires after the plane crash, too. That was out of his mouth to me.“
