• Jim Ross Comments On WWE Firing Eric Bischoff, Says Bruce Prichard’s Time Will Come Too
During a recent edition of Grillin’ JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer & current AEW Commentator Jim Ross discussed WWE releasing Eric Bischoff and giving his SmackDown Executive Director position to Bruce Prichard.
Below is what JR said:
“This whole scenario is set up for a succession process. Do you think that Bruce is safe? You think Bruce got a job, like a Supreme Court Justice, for life? Are you kidding? He don’t think that. I guarantee you don’t think that he knows that his time will come. It’s like football coaches. They get hired to be fired.”
