Bruce Prichard's Pre-Impact Comments Emerge After Hiring

Bruce Prichard returned to work at Impact Wrestling last week making his presence felt at the most recent tapings over the weekend.

However, it seems like before he was collecting a paycheck from them, Bruce had some not-too-flattering things to say about Impact Wrestling. 

Pictured: Bruce Prichard, maybe.

Prichard was interviewed by ESPN last month, and basically said that TNA didn't know its ass from a hole in the ground.

This might come back to bite him just a bit, although a lot of the stuff he said was about Dixie Carter, who the new regime has no love for at the moment.

“I think you should pick who you want to be on the outside the ring, and if you want to let people in [to see the real person behind the scenes], then let them in — but you can’t let them in one hour and kick them out the next. [Former TNA owner] Dixie Carter would drive me nuts, because she would play a character on TV, and she would play a character on her Twitter account, but then on the same Twitter account in a span of minutes she would go back to being just regular Dixie. It’s confusing to whomever it is you are speaking to at the time.”

“They don’t (know what they want to do). For the three years I was there, I asked TNA’s management one question: What business are we in? Are we in the television business? Are we in the wrestling business? Are we in the live promotion business? Tell me who your audience is and tell me who you are selling to. And they never could. You can be in all of those businesses, but you can’t be in one business one day and another business the next. It doesn’t work.”

That wasn't too bad, I guess. 

Still, though.

Awkward.
