Bruce Prichard says he’s not involved or being sued, can’t comment on Janel Grant lawsuit

Feb 11, 2024 - by Colin Vassallo

Returning to his podcast Something to Wrestle following triceps surgery, Bruce Prichard was asked by his co-host Conrad Thompson about the Vince McMahon lawsuit that has rocked WWE.

Prichard, who was one of McMahon’s most trusted lieutenants and described by Ronda Rousey as Vince’s “avatar,” said that he is not at liberty to discuss any legal matter with the company whatsoever.

“So to that, there’s nothing that I can say, so there can’t be a response from a legal standpoint, I’m not involved,” Prichard said. “I’m not being sued, I’m not accused of anything. It’s a legal matter…and sometimes it’s as simple as for those that believe, an explanation is needed and for those that don’t, no explanation will do.”

Prichard said that the case now rests in the hands of the “fine legal system” of the United States of America.

    The hate Bruce received without being mentioned in any legal document personally is not right. You can’t just assume a person is guilty of horrible actions because they worked for someone. That is called slander. Social Media is just too much for me.

    @Yoyo–I think people hate him because, to this day, he defends the creation of the Red Rooster.

    People hate him because to this day, he defends the creation of the Red Rooster. Why on earth would you hate someone for that?

    @Joseph–I don’t hate him, just making a (bad) joke as to why someone would hate him. I mean, come on. The Red Rooster was a HORRIBLE gimmick and to defend it rather than admitting it was a bad idea all these years later is pretty bad. On second thought, after reading what I just typed, I DO hate him.

    It was a horrible gimmick. A gimmick that I must admit, I actually forgot about until I saw you mention it. I can’t even remember when the gimmick was. I know it’s been years. Imagine something like that being on your mind years later.

    @Joseph–Cornette brought it up a few month’s ago saying the same thing. It’s the only reason I know Bruce came up with it. I remember Red Rooster because I was a fan of Terry Taylor in the UWF/NWA/WCW and couldn’t believe he got stuck with such a stupid gimmick.
