Eric Bischoff Comments on SmackDown Executive Director Replacement

eric bischoff comments wwe exit replaced bruce prichard

Bruce Prichard is the new Executive Director of SmackDown and the man who held the position before him offered some kind words after the news broke.

As we previously reported, WWE has announced Eric Bischoff is no longer working for the company. 

“Bruce is a great producer, good friend and I am certain he is going to thrive in his position,” Bischoff tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. “He’s going to be working with a great team of the most dedicated and hard working people I have had the pleasure of working with and getting to know.”

Prichard returned to WWE in a backstage position back in March. On the latest episode of Something to Wrestle With, Bruce talked about moving to Stamford full-time this month.

Bischoff’s exit comes as more of a surprise, since he only came back to WWE in June.
