Bruce Prichard almost managed The Big Red Machine.
On the latest Q&A episode of his Something To Wrestle podcast on AdFreeShows, Prichard was asked what his favorite Vince Russo idea was that never made it to air. Russo, of course, was one of the WWF's head writers during the Attitude Era, along with Ed Ferrara. Prichard shared an idea from late 1997/early 1998 where he would have returned to manage Kane. Here is what he said:
"We actually had an idea for me to come back and end up managing Kane with dark red hair... Now, this was 1997-ish, maybe '98, so it had to be right after that [Kane debuted at Badd Blood in October 1997]. Shortly after that. But the idea was that my hair was red, basically, the color of Undertaker's hair and the idea was that I was going to come back under the auspices of helping the Undertaker feud with his brother Kane. We would basically do a kind of a switch, but after the promos, Vince [McMahon], classic Vince. Can tell you that you're a piece of shit and that it really sucks by telling you how great you are. Then you walk away feeling good but just shit all over. [Immitating McMahon] Goddamnit pal, that's not a heel promo, that's a babyface promo. Goddamn that was strong. Strong, Strong. Way to go."
Bruce Prichard currently serves as the Executive Producer of both Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown. He was appointed to the role in June 2020. He is perhaps best known for portraying the Brother Love character during his time in WWE.
