Bruce Prichard Named Interim WWE Head Of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis On Administrative Leave

Bruce Prichard now has a new job title in WWE following the reveal of an investigation of Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis’ conduct.

As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Vince McMahon is being investigated by the WWE board of directors for a $3 million settlement paid to a former WWE employee, with whom he had a sexual relationship. According to the original report, this employee started out as a paralegal but eventually became an assistant to John Laurinaitis.
