Former WCW President Eric Bischoff took to “After 83 Weeks” to offer his thoughts on Bruce Prichard returning to WWE as a member of creative. During the interview, Eric Bischoff revealed Conrad Thompson’s reaction to the news when he ran into him at a hotel in St. Louis, and also speculated that Bruce Prichard made more money with his podcast than he ever did in his WWE career. Here are the highlights:
Conrad Thompson’s reaction to Bruce Prichard re-joining WWE: “I got to St. Louis [on Saturday] and I saw Conrad at the hotel, about 2:30 in the afternoon,” Bischoff said. “He looked kind of down a little bit and I said, ‘Hey what’s up?’ He said, ‘Haven’t you heard?’ And I said, ‘I haven’t heard anything.’ And then I found out the news then [from Conrad].”
Bruce Prichard making more as a podcaster than in WWE: “Bruce was more successful over the last two years than he ever was financially during his career in WWE,” Bischoff said. “He’s been doing really, really well. But there was something missing in his life. I think that something missing was his relationship with the entire team, but especially Vince McMahon.
“They were together for a long time. So I think that even though Bruce was doing so well financially with his podcast and with his live shows, I think he’s going to be a much happier person back home where he really probably needs to be.”
