In a surprising turn of events, Eric Bischoff is no longer with WWE and Bruce Prichard has been named as the new Executive Director of Friday Night SmackDown.
In their announcement today, it was noted that Prichard will be reporting directly to Vince McMahon just like Bischoff did during his recent stint.
Prichard is being tasked to oversee all of the creative for SmackDown. Prichard returned to the company earlier this year as part of the creative team.
No details are available yet on Bischoff’s exit from the company but we’ll provide details as soon as we get them.
