Bryan Danielson On Working With The WWE Creative Team, Bruce Prichard

During a special Starrcast edition of The Sessions with Renee Paquette, the Blackpool Combat Club's own Bryan Danielson reflected on his time in WWE, and sang the praises of WWE creative writer Bruce Prichard. Danielson also discussed his short stint as a member of the WWE creative team, and more. Check out the highlights below.

On working with the WWE creative team:

“The pandemic was happening. Somebody in one of my segments, it was right before Brie was about to give birth to our son Buddy. It was a month before that, somebody in one of my segments got COVID. They called me and were like, ‘You were in a segment with somebody who got COVID. A bunch of people in the segment got COVID. You might have COVID.’ I tested and didn’t have COVID, but I requested, ‘I don’t think I should come to work, my wife is pregnant and due soon.’ They were fine and great with that. Bruce Prichard called me and said, ‘I know you’re gone, but would you like to be part of the creative team and meetings?’ They were doing them through Zoom. I said ‘Yeah.’ I loved it. I know a lot of people have talked a lot of crap about writers. It’s a thankless job. There are a lot of smart, fun, writers.”

On working with Bruce Prichard:

“I loved dealing with Bruce Prichard. Some people talk bad about Bruce, I love Bruce. I really enjoyed it.”
