Bruce Prichard has made clear how some people in wrestling are severely misunderstood for the roles they are in.
A long-time producer, Bruce Prichard knows exactly what it takes to put on a professional wrestling event to be broadcast around the world. He’s now been critical of those who try to assess the jobs which make it happen, and stood up for some as being misunderstood.
In a recent edition of his Something To Wrestle With podcast, Bruce Prichard singled out Eric Bischoff as probably being the most misunderstood whilst also giving Triple H and Kevin Dunn a mention, and how most wouldn’t know what they’d have to do if they were to work a week in their shoes.
I think Eric Bischoff is a big one. I also think Paul Levesque, I think Kevin Dunn through the years.
I could guarantee you that 99% of the dirt sheet writers and I can guarantee you 100% of Dave Meltzer could not tell you of what I do, they could not tell you what Eric Bischoff did, they could not tell you what Kevin Dunn does. They don’t know, they just hear bits and pieces, and then they hear buzzwords and they try to put them together but they have no clue what it actually takes or ‘give me the week in the life of this person.’ Couldn’t do it. Couldn’t do it cause they just don’t know.
Eric Bischoff has certainly proven to be a polarising figure in the wrestling industry, and recently discussed how he was legitimately attacked by Ric Flair backstage at a Monday Night RAW taping in 2003.
