WWE Head of Creative Triple H has reportedly raised questions over Bruce Prichard regarding whether to keep him in WWE or not. Prichard has been long-term backstage personnel under the former WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon. Bruce served as the company’s executive director for both RAW and SmackDown. However, with The Game now running creative operations for both shows it has been speculated that there might be some concerns raised regarding Prichard’s future in WWE.
Triple H is yet to decide on Bruce Prichard future in WWE
Dave Meltzer stated in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Triple H may soon have to question the executive’s position in the company:
“This will lead to questions about Prichard in his spot and time will tell. Prichard is a guy who gets that his job is to service his boss. Talent thinks he’s a Vince McMahon guy with more of an idea of the entertainment side and that Levesque (Triple H) is more wrestling, but I think Prichard will service whatever vision Levesque wants. Nobody expects a lot of changes in a hurry but they do expect changes as Levesque will more and more bring in his guys.”
Fightful Select had previously revealed there were rumors among talent that expect Kevin Dunn to be the next to leave, though for now Dunn and Bruce Prichard were the points of contact on SmackDown. Dunn was also a part of the talent meeting that was held recently. There is a 50-50 chance Prichard might be departing the company, while Dunn is expected to be gone by the end of the year. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have had heat with Dunn and Prichard in the past.
One thing of note is that when the same talent speculated that John Laurinaitis was being let go from the company, that ended up being the case, and now they’ve talked about Dunn being gone next. Reports online expect Dunn to be gone from WWE by the end of 2022. Many speculate Bruce Prichard is also not needed for WWE
