Former WWE head writer Vince Russo suggests that Triple H and Bruce Prichard might have been privy to the recent allegations against Vince McMahon.
McMahon faced a fresh wave of allegations recently, resulting in his resignation as TKO’s Executive Chairman, although his camp has refuted the claims.
Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW, Russo implied that Triple H and Prichard seemed to have knowledge of the allegations. He pointed out Prichard’s long-standing role as McMahon’s confidant and speculated that Prichard might not stay with WWE much longer.
“I am sure there are two people without a shadow of a doubt. Triple H number one, and Bruce Prichard. Bruce Prichard has been Vince McMahon’s consigliere for 30 freaking years, and that’s why I don’t see him being with WWE for much longer. There is a history of Bruce smartening Vince up to everything.
That is history for years and years, and if Ari [Ari Emanuel, the CEO of Endeavor] makes that connection that Bruce is going to be telling Vince what’s going on, he’s not going to be working there. Ronda Rousey recently commented on Bruce Prichard’s alleged role in the company. She said the veteran was “Vince’s avatar,” and the former WWE CEO ran things through him while he was gone for a brief period in 2022.
At a post-Royal Rumble press conference, WWE Chief Creative Officer Triple H was asked about the allegations against McMahon. However, Triple H chose to focus on the positive aspects:
“I’m gonna do exactly what you would expect me to do here. We just had an amazing week. Just got a 10-year $5 billion Netflix deal. [The] Rock joining our board. We just sold out the Royal Rumble, [and] put 48,000 people in Tropicana Field. I choose to focus on the positive, and yes there’s a negative, but I wanna focus on that and just keep it to that,” he said.
