For WWF/WWE and fans of the world of WRASTLIN’ in general Bruce Prichard is a name that should be familiar to you. Being apart and having a hand in much of the creative output of Wrestling’s powerhouse company for many years he has helped shape the business in ways many of us marks would never understand.
Recently he’s been making waves on his top rated podcast ‘Something To Wrestle…With Bruce Prichard’ along with former ‘Ric Flair Show’ presenter Conrad Thompson. For any fan it’s a must listen.
Now Bruce Prichard and Hooked On Events will bring the show live in front of UK audiences for the first time with events in Birmingham (Around The World Bar) on Sunday, July 16; Manchester (The Comedy Store) on Monday, July 17 ; and London (Walkabout Sports Bar, Temple) on Tuesday, July 18.
As a WWE executive – and confidante of legendary WWE Chairman Vince McMahon – Bruce has one of the most storied careers in wrestling history having spent decades working at the heart of WWE. From the era of Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and the Ultimate Warrior through to Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker and The Rock, Bruce Prichard has been in the trenches for some of the most historic and controversial moments in wrestling history.
The shows in the UK will see Bruce grilled on topics focusing on some of the key moments in WWE in the UK, including major events held this side of the pond; British stars to make their mark on WWE; and a whole host of other topics never discussed on the podcast itself.
In addition, fans will have a chance to participate in a live edition of the #LoveToKnow Q&A so they can ask questions they have desperately wanted to hear answered for years. As Bruce says: “There’s only one other guy who was privy to all these stories. And he ain’t talking, pal!”
Paul Benson, Managing Director, Hooked On Events Ltd said: “We are so excited to be bringing ‘Something to Wrestle With…Bruce Prichard’ to the UK. The show has proven immensely popular due to Bruce’s perspective and entertainment value. You never go away from an episode of the podcast without feeling both highly entertained and picking up some great wrestling stories. Our events will be a live, uncensored version of this immensely popular show.”
Bruce Prichard said, “I am thrilled to be coming over to bring Something To Wrestle With to the UK for the first time. Everyone knows how passionate and knowledgeable the fans in the UK are and they have supported our podcast in the tens of thousands each week since we started. I’m asked on a daily basis when I am bringing live shows over there and now I can say it’s on the way!”
The event will also include VIP ‘Meet and Greet’ Opportunities; photograph and autograph session; and almost certainly some of Bruce’s beloved wrestling impressions.
Ticket packages are available, starting from £25.
