Bruce Prichard recently spoke about the Monday Night Wars and what he would have done differently during the Monday Night Wars. Bruce Prichard runs his own podcast, “Something To Wrestle With: Bruce Prichard,” in which he talked about the legendary era.
The Monday Night Wars took place between WWE and WCW, where WCW was eventually defeated by WWE. The war began in 1995. During the war, WWE and WCW fired many shots at each other, including WWE at Ted Turner, who owned TNT at the time.
Prichard talked about the sketch that was ready to taunt Turner.
Bruce Prichard on some things WWE shouldn’t have done during Monday Night Wars
“Every time you challenge Vince, he will fight you as a competitor and a challenger,” said Prichard.
“He will do anything to survive, and that was an example of that. You’re trying to get me out of business, they said they wanted to get us out of business, let’s go. “The WWF was doing these skits when WCW was constantly proclaiming the WWF at the time.
They even posted their pre-recorded show results live on Monday Nitro. Prichard stated that it was a bad idea for WWF to focus on what WCW was doing as it actually gave WCW a lot of credibility and WWF lost focus on its own product.
“In hindsight, when I was 20/20, I wish we had ignored them completely,” said Prichard. “We’re doing everything we found on the territory. Everyone was concerned about what Vince was doing and trying to fight Vince instead of worrying about his own home.
“You start watching your competitor because the things they were doing made noise. If we had focused less on it and focused on our own business, what I mean by less is to ignore it. Ignore it completely. By doing this in a variety of ways, we have given them credibility and drawn attention to them. “
Although WCW did very well during the Monday Night Wars, TNT and WCW made some bad decisions that resulted in their losing the Monday Night Wars. Also, WCW didn’t have a solid counterpoint to the Stone Cold versus Vince McMahon storyline, which really hurt WCW a lot. In fact, many people believe that the plot was the beginning of the end for WCW.
