WWE has an issue with the flow of information backstage. We previously reported that a majority of the finger pointing in that regard goes to Bruce Prichard. He has all but shut everyone out of Vince McMahon’s attention at this point.
Ringside News asked around about this problem with the creative process. We were told by a tenured member of the creative team that the current flow of information is “the worst in company history, I mean it!”
Bruce Prichard has become an ultimate gatekeeper for Vince McMahon. He “blocks out any opinions he doesn’t want to deal with,” but there are still some he cannot shut out.
We were told that Prichard will block anyone out of Vince McMahon’s attention “except the ones Vince doesn’t let him.” Some of those select individuals include Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Kevin Dunn, Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman, Daniel Bryan, and John Cena. Anyone else who wishes to get an idea to McMahon must take their chances by talking to Bruce Prichard first.

We exclusively reported last night that Vince McMahon was not at WWE Raw this week. He also wasn’t at Friday’s television tapings due to his brother Rod McMahon’s passing. Triple H, Kevin Dunn, and Bruce Prichard ran the show in Mr. McMahon’s absence.
