Bruce Prichard returned this week with a brand new "Something To Wrestle" podcast. This week's show covered Bret Hart's WWE run from 1994-95.
Bruce said he never wrote one NXT show:
"I can't come out and say things when things are reported incorrectly or just out and out falsehood, and out and out lies, and sometimes it really irritates me and sometimes it doesn't. I'm not in a position where I can really comment on some of those. But it's for those that choose to be negative and want to believe the negative, then you're a negative person and that's what you're going to do, so have at it. I'm not going to try and change anything else.”
“But I do have to say, because it's something that people, even internally, would come to me with and make comments about, that I was writing NXT. I never wrote one NXT show in the history of my existence. I am a fan of NXT. I love NXT.”
Note: None of the credible wrestling websites reported that Prichard was writing NXT. Prichard was reported to have been overseeing the brand with Vince McMahon. Dave Meltzer reported last September that McMahon and Prichard would handle the marketing, promotion, and direction of the brand and that "their role in booking may only be regarding those at the top."
“Shawn Michaels recently came out and talked about how 'No, it's been me (Michaels). It's been me since day one.' I think Shawn has done a tremendous job of grabbing NXT by the horns and doing what he's done. I love Shawn Michaels to death. But the fact that Shawn finally came out and said, 'What are you guys talking about?' Those pundits out there, the dirt sheet writers that reported as fact, not, ‘Hey rumors are’, they reported as fact that I had been involved in NXT and doing all that stuff. The fact of the matter is that they were 100% fabricated lies, from where, I don’t know. So now that they've heard it from two different sources that are actually there, that actually know, they should probably consider their sources or just stop making things up."
