Bruce Prichard is a top executive in WWE as Executive Director of SmackDown and Monday Night RAW. He recently had to undergo triceps surgery and now more information related to his injury has been revealed.

While speaking on Ask Conrad Live, Conrad Thompson provided an update on Bruce Prichard following his triceps surgery. Contrary to claims on social media that Prichard was laying low due to the Janel Grant lawsuit, Thompson clarified that the surgery did happen. He noted that Prichard had shoulder surgery and, while wearing a brace, fell, causing a triceps injury.

“He called me and he said, ‘Dude, this was brutal. My arm is swollen up. It’s got a fever. It’s hot to the touch. I’ve got hot dog fingers. I’ve got some sort of infection and they’ve been giving me antibiotics and blah, blah, blah. It feels like I’ve got a 300 pound weight hanging by a string.’”

He’s on the mend. I know that there’s been a lot of chatter online and lots of Bruce haters who are saying, ‘Oh, he’s faking an injury or whatever. He’s trying to stay out of the limelight or lay low.’ None of that’s reality. What happened as you guys have seen on YouTube, he had shoulder surgery, so he’s got himself in a sling, more than a sling, really, but it’s like this brace that he can’t even put on by himself. It’s this giant apparatus.

Well, unfortunately, while he was wearing it, he fell, and when he fell, he had to try to instinctively catch himself, and when he did, now he had all of his body weight, where instead of trying to brace it with two arms or two hands, it happened with one, and any adult man, especially one who may or may not be a few pounds overweight, he just snapped the tricep. He tore it right off the bone.”

Thompson emphasized that Prichard is genuinely recovering and not feigning an injury to stay out of the limelight. The situation, involving two surgeries in close succession, has been challenging for Prichard’s recovery.

Conrad Thompson added that Bruce Prichard was told by doctors that the triceps surgery would be very painful, and that he has been miserable ever since he underwent the procedure.

“He told me today, he said, ‘I called Punk and said, man, how’s the tricep doing’, and Punk told him, ‘Fu**ing worst ever’, and that made Bruce feel happy because he’s like, ‘Good. It’s not just fat, old, elderly men. It’s also, you know, in their prime athletes who were still feeling the effects of a s***** tricep surgery like this.

”The doctor even told him when he did it, he goes, ‘Just give you a heads up, Bruce. This is going to be really, really painful. It’s going to really suck’ and he’s like, ‘Yeah, but I just had my shoulder. It can’t be worse than that’, and the doctor goes, ‘I’m not gonna say it’s worse, but it ain’t better.’

”Now it’s clicking for Bruce like, he’s right. This is fu**ing miserable. But you know, listen, everybody’s told him, ‘Hey, give it a week’, and then they’re gonna say, I know this, ‘Give it two weeks. Give it three weeks’ so he’s on the mend, but he does not recommend having two surgeries inside of like two weeks, if you can help it.”‘

Ronda Rousey also doesn’t have the best opinion of Bruce Prichard either. We continue to give our best to Bruce Prichard as he continues to recover from his multiple surgeries.
