Bruce Prichard

As reported earlier, Bruce Prichard officially started back with WWE in a creative role at the RAW taping this past Monday night in Atlanta.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting this week that Prichard had actually agreed to terms to make a return to WWE back in January and was already working as a consultant quietly for the company, something very few people were aware of.

Prichard was in Phoenix during Royal Rumble weekend and Houston for Elimination Chamber. Houston is where Prichard met with Vince McMahon about returning in a full-time role. Prichard is being described as McMahon’s new “right-hand man.”

It still isn’t clear what this means for Prichard’s popular “Something to Wrestle” podcast. News of his return to WWE was made public one day after the latest episode.
