Current WWE main event superstar Cody Rhodes was recently interviewed on the ‘Dale Jr Download’ show, where he ended up praising WWE’s executive director of RAW & SmackDown, Bruce Prichard (aka Brother Love).

Here’s what Cody Rhodes had to say about Bruce:

“At the time, when I was in OVW, the one that I needed to impress the most was a man named Bruce Prichard. He is a genius, remains a genius, in the industry, and he was Vince’s right hand. You need someone to write down all these ideas, someone to formulate. Bruce came down and knew what he was looking at. He knew me, knew that my dad cared. You could have done it as a favor for my dad, but the best favor he could do for my dad is lead me in the correct way.

To this day, Bruce is still plugged in to WWE, he’s the main guy. When I lost at WrestleMania 39, I was adamant that I was walking up the ramp. I’m not going side ramp or ‘losers lane’. It’s the end of the show, 80,000 people, I want to look them in the eye, say sorry or ‘we’re going to get him eventually.’

When I walked up there, I wasn’t sure I was ready to walk into Gorilla. I took a second and [Bruce] came out the curtain. It was just him and I. We had a nice moment and I’ll never forget it. In my mind, I was like, ‘I need to reverse this situation and we have this moment again.’

Bruce has been a big part of my career that I didn’t realize was a big part of my career until I got older.”

Bruce Prichard joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1987 and was known as heel interview-segment-host Brother Love from 1988 until 1991, as well as The Undertaker’s first manager in late 1990 and early 1991.

Prichard returned to the WWF in August 1992 and worked as a backstage figure (agent, creative, …) and even became Vince McMahon’s ‘right-hand man’ until 2008.

He returned to WWE 10 years later in 2018 and is still working there in multiple positions today.

Cody Rhodes first wrestled for WWE from 2007 until 2016 and later, after stints in IMPACT Wrestling (2016-2017) and Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling (2019-2022), returned at WrestleMania 38 as the mystery opponent for Seth Rollins.
