In an interview with WrestlingInc.com, Conrad Thompson, co-host of Something to Wrestle With alongside Bruce Prichard, discussed the new role being undertaken by his colleague and friend Prichard in WWE. Prichard recently took over as Monday Night RAW Executive Director when Paul Heyman was relieved of his duties, meaning he is now in charge of both main roster shows.
Here is what Thompson had to say:
“It’s not a little bit of stress, it’s a lot of stress. We don’t have specific conversations cause I don’t want him to ever think that I’m being the guy trying to dig for scoops, but yeah, every now and again, certainly I’ll get a call from Bruce and you can just hear it in his voice.”
“He’s tired. He’s sleepy. He’s stressing. And I can only imagine the amount of curveballs that are coming his way, not just from running a show on FOX, which my goodness, what a huge undertaking that is. But now you’ve also got a show on USA, but as if that wasn’t enough, it’s also happening during a pandemic on a closed set.”
“It’s just remarkable when you think about all the particular challenges and how many times they must have to – and nobody’s told me this – but I just assume they’ve had to write and rewrite and write and rewrite because there’s so many moving parts. There’s so many variables with who can travel, who can’t, who has a fever, who doesn’t. These are things where maybe once upon a time it was just something you didn’t have to worry about.”
“Everybody’s here, everybody’s accounted for and everybody’s well. And if that’s not the case, I can only imagine that wreaks havoc on your plans. So, you have to adjust on the fly and again, I’m free-styling and all of that and nobody’s told me that, but I just can’t imagine.’”
“Cause in my day to day life, during the last three months, everything has not gone according to plan and I’m not writing five hours of TV every week. So, the idea that five hours of TV with hundreds of people comes off flawlessly and there’s no hiccups because of COVID? Yeah, that’s probably a little unrealistic.”
