Bruce Prichard is one of Vince McMahon’s most trusted executives in WWE. The former Brother Love is also a divisive figure for a lot of reasons as well. WWE talent are also concerned over him being named the interim Head of Talent Relations.
After the whole debacle with Vince McMahon’s $3 million hush money scandal, John Laurinaitis was made to take administrative leave. Bruce Prichard was then named the interim Head of Talent Relations.
According to Fightful’s paywall, news of Prichard taking on Johnny Ace’s role did not really make people happy. The main issue here, per the talents, is that Prichard will now be moonlighting as both Head of Creative and Head of Talent Relations.
Several former and current talents added their views, with one saying “Vince [McMahon] only knows three people,” as a joke to Laurinaitis and Prichard being tasked with roles. Another talent said they got several texts from talents specifying a particular concern they had about Prichard handling both roles.
Another said that they’d had multiple texts from talent stating that there is concern about Bruce handling both roles, because now if you want time off, you have to ask the person who effectively is your filter between creative and Vince McMahon.
We will have to wait and see how Bruce Prichard will perform in his two roles now. Fans might get to see changes that they might not necessarily want, either.
