During his numerous stints with WWE, Bruce Prichard has worked with some of the biggest Superstars that professional wrestling has ever seen.
Prichard initially signed with WWE back in 1987, going on to become Brother Love a year later. As the character, Prichard famously appeared as The Undertaker’s manager for his debut at the 1990 Survivor Series.
Prichard was released by WWE in 1991, before returning in September of 1992. Over the next 16 years, Prichard mainly worked backstage, although he also made occasional on-screen appearances. After leaving the company for a second time in 2008, Prichard worked for IMPACT Wrestling and MLW, heading back to WWE in 2018.
Upon his latest return, Prichard became heavily involved in the creative team, eventually becoming Executive Director of both RAW and SmackDown.
Speaking on his Something to Wrestle Podcast, available via Ad Free Shows, Bruce Prichard along with co-host Conrad Thompson, looked back on Unforgiven 2006. The show was headlined by the WWE Title clash between Edge and John Cena in a TLC Match.
During the conversation, Prichard heaped praise on John Cena. The former manager noted that every time Cena performed, he delivered a good match.
“Every time John would go out, John would have a good match,”
“John would do everything that he could to have a different match every night and experiment, and not do the same thing every night. That’s who Cena was. That’s who Cena is. I would kill to have had, you know, five guys on the roster that are like John Cena.”
When asked about whether Cena would make his own personal Mount Rushmore, Prichard continued his praise before adding The Rock, The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin to the list.
“Absolutely. Love the guy to death,” Bruce said of John Cena. “Undertaker [would awesome go on Bruce’s Mount Rushmore]. I’d put Austin and Rock on there [also].”
John Cena recently brought down the curtain on another short run with WWE following defeat to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam. While an illusive 17th World Championship remains out of reach, Cena has made it clear that he’ll only ever continue that quest in WWE.
