After being accused of sex trafficking in a new lawsuit, Vince McMahon announced his resignation from WWE and UFC parent company TKO Group Holdings on Friday night.
Shortly after the news broke of Vince’s resignation, it was reported that Endeavor may “sweep out anyone close to McMahon” to have a clean slate going forward as employees connected to McMahon may be seen as a “major negative going forward.”
On Saturday, former WWE and UFC star Ronda Rousey reacted to the news of Vince’s resignation with the following message via Twitter/X…
“Bruce Prichard is basically Vince’s avatar, if he’s still around Vince still has a hand in the business. Vince was still running things through Bruce when he was ‘gone’ before.”
Prichard has held the title of Executive Director for WWE RAW and Smackdown in recent years. In late March of 2023, Prichard downplayed Vince’s role in creative while speaking to The Press Box…
“He made it to one TV and really had nothing to say other than, ‘great show, thank you guys.’ In that regard, he is busy working on the business end of things and has given us free rein on the creative end of things to handle it. I think we’ve done a pretty good job so far.”
