Well that lasted long for Bischoff. I guess losing 1 million viewers in a week will do that. How long will Prichard last if they keep dropping?

Is this a good thing? What does this portend for the Smackdown product?

It's not like Eric had any real control anyway. He was brought in to be the fall guy.

Re: Bruce Prichard named the new Executive Director of Smackdown

So Prichard got demoted from being an SVP of an unknown department to the Executive Director of Smackdown and Bischoff got either demoted to work under Prichard or fired all entirely.

Kudos to members on this forum who called out Bischoff's removal and him lasting less than a year.

I do feel bad about the situation. Bischoff moved to Stamford a few months ago because of this job and now he has to think about his living situation all over again (if in fact he was fired).

As long as Prichard has his lips attached to Vince's ass and is a good little lapdog he will keep that position for as long as he wants
