It was reported last week that Bruce Prichard, who was contracted with the WWE between 1987-1991 and then again from 1992-2008, was once again working for the company. Bruce worked not only as a backstage producer and a member of the creative team but also performed an on-screen role as Brother Love.
It was said that he was signed for a ”major role” and would even be working as Vince McMahon’s ”right-hand man”. However, Bruce has rebuffed the latter claim in the latest version of his ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast where he said that his role within WWE was not yet defined. On this matter, Bruce said:
”It still needs to be worked out as far as what my role will be. I’m going to come back and help out wherever I can be most valuable.”
Bruce confirmed that he was backstage at last Monday’s Raw show, noting that everything has happened at such a fast pace but he was very happy to once again be working for WWE, saying ”I had an absolute blast seeing everyone”.
Something To Wrestle With finished?
When the news broke of his new deal with WWE, fans began to worry that his incredibly popular ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, which he does with Conrad Thompson, might be cancelled.
However, Bruce has assured fans that his podcast will still continue to run but that they should expect potential changes in terms of scheduling now that Prichard is on the road. Bruce said ”we’re going to experiment with some things and have some fun and see where we go”.
So while it seemingly remains unclear as to exactly what the former Brother Love’s position will be in the WWE, it was reported this past week that his hire will lead to ”major changes” to the WWE product.
Quite what those will be we will no doubt see in the coming weeks.
