Bruce Prichard Responds to Vince McMahon Allegations: ‘It’s a Legal Matter, I’m Not Accused of Anything – On the latest “Something to Wrestle With” podcast, Bruce Prichard was asked to say what he can about the Vince McMahon allegations. Prichard said he can’t comment on what’s going on due to the ongoing investigation.
Prichard said, “First of all, as far as lawsuits and things of that nature, I’m not at liberty to discuss any legal matters with the company whatsoever. To that, there’s nothing that I can say and/or do.”
He continued, “There can’t be a response from a legal standpoint. You can ask until you’re blue in the face and that’s gonna be your answer. I’m not involved, I’m not being sued, I’m not accused of anything. It’s a legal matter and as I said to you, sometimes it’s as simple as — for those who believe, an explanation is needed. For those that don’t, no explanation will do. That’s kind of where we are. Let the rest of it sit with the fine legal system that we have here in the United States of America.”
Thompson noted that Prichard is still employed by WWE and the company is also being sued so “it’s pretty logical that he’s not gonna be able to give a response here.”
Prichard primarily worked for the WWF/WWE from 1987 until he was fired by Stephanie McMahon in 2008. He returned to the company in 2018 as the Brother Love character on the Raw 25 anniversary special. In 2019, he was signed to a full-time deal as part of the creative team. He was later promoted to WWE’s Senior Vice President and then to Executive Director of SmackDown as Eric Bischoff’s replacement.
Vince McMahon is currently under federal investigation. He resigned last month after a lawsuit that was filed by Janel Grant that accused him of sexual assault and sex trafficking.
