In a comment on Twitter, Bischoff wished Prichard luck in his new role, tweeting, "Bruce is a great producer, good friend and I am certain he is going to thrive in his position. He’s going to be working with a great team of the most dedicated and hard working people I have had the pleasure of working with and getting to know."

Prichard posted the following reply.

 

As reported by Fightful Select, Prichard was already overseeing a pretty encompassing group of tasks, and had resumed his role as "Vince's right-hand man." Prichard had been more hands-on than Bischoff, and that the latter was taking time to adjust to the familiarizing himself with the roster and product. Bischoff was hired as Executive Director on June 27 but did not start on the job until July 22.

Fightful will continue to provide more details on the situation as they are known.
