Eric Bischoff says only Hulk Hogan had creative control in WCW. He debunked the popular misconception that Kevin Nash and Scott Hall also had creative control.
The fall of WCW is always attributed to the egos at the top. It is believed that Eric Bischoff signed his promotion’s death when he started handing out creative control to his performers. However, Easy E has now come out strongly against the narrative .
In a recent appearance on the WrestleSlam podcast, he denied ever handing out creative control to Scott Hall or Kevin Nash despite popular belief. In fact, the only person with creatibe control was Hulk Hogan and even he used it only once.

“Hall and Nash didn’t have creative control. To clarify, they did have language in their agreement that gave them ‘meaningful consultation.’ Meaning they were guaranteed to have a conversation with me, and it would have been a meaningful conversation. But meaningful conversation and creative control are two different things. They did not have creative control.”
“Hulk Hogan had creative control, and he only used it once. So the creative control issue was not an issue even though people like to talk about it, and it’s part of the narrative. So I know there are a lot of narratives, and a lot of people have reported that there was creative control. None of those people know what the f*** they’re talking about, to be honest with you. So it didn’t create an issue in WCW.”
