Report: Possible Reason Behind Eric Bischoff's WWE Departure Revealed

"I heard zero good things!"

Yesterday, Eric Bischoff suddenly left his role as Executive Director of Friday Night SmackDown and was replaced by Bruce Prichard.

WWE heaped praise on Prichard in a statement about the shakeup, saying: "Prichard brings nearly 40 years of experience in sports entertainment with an extensive background in character development and creative storytelling. Over the course of his career, Prichard has served in a variety of roles including announcer, producer, agent and on-screen personality."

Bischoff, seemingly accepting of how things have played out just four months after he was hired to the position, tweeted out: "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."


One possible reason for the former WCW head honcho's departure, according to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio at least, may have been down to the way he conducted himself behind the scenes: “He didn’t know any of the talent. He didn’t go out of his way to learn about anything. He would leave and nobody could get ahold of him. I heard zero...zero good things about Eric Bischoff when he was doing whatever he was doing - I don’t even know what he was doing.”
