Bruce Prichard is top executive in WWE as Executive Director of SmackDown and WWE RAW. He is also going to miss some time, as he has a shoulder surgery on the way.

Bruce Prichard runs the show when Triple H can’t make it. He has a lot of pull in WWE, so his absence is certainly noticed. They will have to make things work, because he is going to be out of commission or a bit.

On the most recent episode of the Something To Wrestle With podcast, Bruce Prichard disclosed that he is set to undergo shoulder surgery. It sounds like he’s doing some serious work to his shoulder, because there were issues.

“I said I would never get another shoulder surgery, and in one week (he points to his left shoulder), this one gets cut and ripped apart, labrum sewn up and rotator gets sewn up and chips out of my ball joint and all that good sh*t.”


Dixie Carter was backstage at WWE RAW this week in Nashville. Bruce Prichard also commented on how he invited her to be around for the show, and it was great to see Dixie again.

“I’ve always said it even in our TNA podcast where sometimes a little controversial, but I’ve always maintained that Dixie, I think she’s a wonderful person and we’ve remained friends to this day.” Prichard continued, “I reached out and I thought it would be great since we were going to be in Nashville to invite her to the show and say hello and it was terrific to see her and reconnect and say hello.”

Bruce Prichard didn’t reveal how much time he will miss, but he will certainly need some time to recover. Shoulder surgeries are never easy, and he is preparing himself for this upcoming obstacle. Hopefully, he will be much better off once everything heals.
