Bruce Prichard comments on the book he’s writing and representation within WWE’s writing staff.

During the 4/22 edition of Bruce Prichard’s Something to Wrestle with podcast, he was asked about women being a part of WWE’s writing staff.

Prichard stated that WWE currently has a lot of female representation on their team and it’s been that way since the early 2000s. He added that more women were included once the writing team expanded.

We have a lot of female representation on the writing team now and have since, God, early 2000s… It became a thing when the writing team expanded.

Prichard has been involved in the pro wrestling business for close to 50 years. He is planning to release a book and said it’s just a matter of piecing everything together. He clarified that his book is not a ‘tell-all’ or is not going to reveal any ‘dirt’, but instead will be about fun stories and lessons he’s been able to learn throughout his time in wrestling.

You will get it one day and it’s just a matter of, man, putting it all together. I write it in sections, I write it in moods more than anything but it’s essentially a collection of short stories that I think people will find entertaining, some that have been told here on the podcast, others that I’ve never shared. But it’s not a tell-all, it’s not a ‘who done it’ or any dirt or anything like that. It’s just a fun book of stories and life lessons that I’ve learned in my years in the business.

He has been back with WWE since 2019. His most recent on-screen appearance was during the 2020 Money In The Bank event where he made a cameo as ‘Brother Love’.

Yeah, an old affluent white male’s take on “representation.”

Pritchard is also someone that doesn’t see a lot of what WWE did regarding sexism, homophobia or racism throughout his run as problematic. He’s done some exceptional political and mental gymnastics to qualify many of their poor choices.

i.e. his qualifying the WWE’s treatment of Scott Hall who was using a painful aversion medication to treat alcoholism in his program with Steve Austin, where beer was poured down his throat while he was bound and gagged… See how facetious and dismissive he was about the company’s role in causing him pain, and contributing to his relapse.


What difference does “representation” have when scripts are torn up, and rewritten by two or 3 old, white guys?
