Lashley & Kristal Update, Stephanie Fires Another, More

– As reported earlier, former WWE Diva Kristal Marshall beat out hundreds of women to win Ms. Bikini America. She won despite being pregnant earlier in the year. Regarding her win, Marshall said, “I have the experience of a pageant girl, the body of an athlete and the dedication of a mother. I want my son to be proud of his mother and to know that everything that I did was for him.” The article notes as her husband, although he’s also listed as “WWE Wrestler,” so it could be a mistake. At last word they were at least dating. To view a photo of Kristal winning the bikini contest.

– As reported earlier, WWE released Bruce Prichard on Monday. He had been with the company for 22 years (with the exception of a brief time period). His firing was a call. Prichard was not at TV the past two weeks and people were told he was on vacation.

Stephanie had been negative on Prichard in recent years as she saw him as ’s biggest yes-man. She’s buried him in the past, sometimes in front of others at creative team meetings, believing he was not paying attention and/or giving non-committal answers. She made the official call to cut him loose. With Prichard being a senior member in WWE, he had a large contract that Stephanie could justify cutting – although he often complained about taking a pay cut when he moved from Head of Talent Relations to creative. In the past, he was an important member of the creative team, but no so much in recent months.

He had also largely lost contact with Vince. He was supposed to attend meetings at WWE’s headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut two weeks every month, but recently, it was more like two days every 8 to 10 weeks. The creative team was not given a reason regarding his dismissal from the company. Bruce Prichard is the brother of Tom Prichard, who currently works with WWE’s developmental talents in Tampa, Florida. Bruce Prichard has had numerous drug problems in the past, which has caused him to miss job promotions in the company as a result. He was supposed to land the head of television role producer Kevin Dunn ended up taking. Since 2004, WWE required Prichard to take urine tests once per week.

Regarding his future, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Prichard wind up in TNA. He is close to TNA wrestler since both of their wives have battled cancer. Prichard was quite upset when Jarrett’s wife Jill passed away last year as a result of the disease, to the point that some people were worried about him. Prichard was a major supporter of and John Bradshaw Layfield. In fact, Prichard is listed as one of the VP’s of ’s company.

– WWE will be running a RAW brand house show on Friday, February 27, 2009 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
