– JJ Dillon recently spoke with Hannibal TV (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), her are the highlights…

On Allegations By Eric Bischoff That He Tried To Disclose WWE Talent Pay: “I had been involved with contracts and knew what everybody was making, and I would regard divulging proof of that as proprietary information that would’ve been inappropriate for me to document to him,” Dillon said. “Did I have ballpark numbers that were in my mind? Yes. And if there was a discussion, I could’ve talked in generalities… I could, in generalities without giving him specifics, help him with my knowledge in a subtle way.”

On having No Ax to grind With Bsschoff: “I have no ax to grind with Eric Bischoff,” he said. “Eric is a good-looking guy, dresses well, presents himself well. He could be the salesman who could sell anything because he has the gift of gab for presentation and he’s very smart that way. He’s not a wrestling person, I don’t think he’s particularly knowledgeable in our business. Whatever his opinion of me is and his assessment of my capabilities professionally or personally, to be honest I could care less. But I don’t have any personal animosity towards him.”

On Eric Bischoff Failing With WCW: “He failed. He didn’t fail because of me,” Dillon said. “At one point, Kevin Sullivan and I were put on the shelf. We had contracts and were being paid, and we were sent to Siberia. Whatever happened from that point that was to the demise of the company that they ceased to exist, two people who can share none of the burden of the responsibility would be Kevin Sullivan and myself.”
