In the latest episode of his ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, Bruce Prichard has responded to allegations that he once had an affair with the daughter of WWE’s chairman Stephanie McMahon.
Rumours arose in 2001 when Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler was asked in a radio show appearance “hey, Stephanie McMahon is hot. Do you think she’s wild in the sack?” The Hall of Famer, who had left the company at this time and in the process of expressing his dislike for all things WWE, replied with ”well, that’s what Bruce Prichard told me”.
Finally, 18 years after Lawler’s comments, Bruce Prichard has finally responded. He, as expected, rebuffed the claims, and said ”Jerry Lawler [was] in a desperate place. I think he was saying things to hurt people and stir s*** and he accomplished that.” He would go on to add that these claims were ”obviously, not true.”
Prichard would then go on the attack and condemn Lawler for his claims, expressing the potential ramifications of the allegations: “to me, your f****** with people’s family. Hunter and Stephanie were together and I’m married with kids and a mother-in-law, who for whatever reason, would scan and search my name from time-to-time.”
These allegations are likely false, as Bruce Prichard was re-hired recently by WWE to work on the creative team. It is also speculated that Bruce will be working alongside Vince McMahon as his ‘right-hand man’. Vince would be unlikely to not only hire, but also opt to work so closely with someone that he believed to have had an affair with his daughter.
