As previously reported, Bruce Prichard is set to return to The WWE in a top, full-time position as part of The Company’s Creative Team.
Prichard has actually been traveling with WWE and working as a Backstage Consultant since January of this year, according to Dave Meltzer on a recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio Program. It is believed that the deal to advance Prichard into his current, new role within the company was finalized this past Friday.
Apparently, the idea of bringing Prichard back to The Creative Team in a full-time position was first mentioned early last week. It was instantly well received and the idea gained enough momentum by the weekend that Prichard will now reportedly be Vince’s right hand man and a “very key guy” to the creative functions in WWE.
Last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW from Atlanta, GA marked the first show that Prichard was working on directly with Vince McMahon. Along with Prichard, WWE has had an influx of new hires backstage including Steve Corino, Shane “Hurricane” Helms, Sonjay Dutt, Shawn Daivari, IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Famer Chris “Abyss” Parks & WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett.
