As previously reported, Eric Bischoff was replaced as Executive Director of WWE Friday Night SmackDown by Bruce Prichard. WWE has now sent out a statement clarifying that Bischoff is not only no longer Executive Director of SmackDown, he is no longer employed by WWE.
WWE confirmed Bischoff’s departure to Wrestling INC.
“Bischoff is no longer with the company and has been replaced by Prichard.”
Bischoff moved from Wyoming to Stamford earlier this summer, when it was announced that Paul Heyman & himself would be overseeing RAW & SmackDown respectively. There is no word as to why Bischoff and WWE parted ways.
