Bruce Prichard, who rejoined WWE in February 2019 and currently serves as the executive director since October 2019, refrained from commenting on a lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon, WWE, and former executive John Laurinaitis.
The lawsuit, filed on January 25 by Janel Grant, accuses McMahon of sex trafficking, emotional abuse, and sexual assault, spanning incidents from March 2019 to March 2022.
During an episode of Something To Wrestle, Prichard was asked to address the lawsuit against McMahon and WWE. He responded, “As far as lawsuits and things of that nature, I’m not at liberty to discuss any legal matters of the company whatsoever. To that, there is nothing that I can say. There can’t be a response from the legal standpoint. You can ask until you’re blue in the face, and that’s going to be your answer.”
Prichard emphasized that he wasn’t involved, being sued, or accused of anything in the lawsuit, asserting, “It’s a legal matter.” He added, “Let the rest of it sit in the hands of the fine legal system we have here in the United States of America.”
Regarding his involvement in discussions about the lawsuit on the podcast, Prichard stated, “No one told me not to do anything on the podcast other than the simple fact that I work for a company that is involved in a lawsuit right now. I can’t comment.”
He cautioned listeners about discussing lawsuits involving their employers, stating, “Folks, if you work at a large company and your large company is being sued, there is very little you can say about it. If you do, that’s a good way for you to lose your job.”
It’s important to note that Vince McMahon has denied the allegations made in the lawsuit.
