Jeffrey Leon "Jeff" Bridges (born December 4, 1949) is the former General Manager of IPH Wrestling. Hired on June 30, 2013, Bridges made his first appearance at Tapout to inform El Hombre about the impending return of "Skinny" Vinny Vicious.
After dabbling in acting for the better part of twenty years, Bridges decided to earn his MBA in Business Management at the Smeal College of Business at Pennsylvania State University. Upon graduation, Bridges was hired as the Vice President of International Affairs for Lumpy's Organization. After displaying keen business and leadership skills, IPH management offered Bridges a job as General Manager of IPH Wrestling.
IPH General Manager (2013-2013)Edit
In the middle of 2013, IPH was in a state of chaos. On the heels of El Hombre's vicious mean streak and the chaos caused by Latimer Lozanski and Pete Hughes' best-of-five series, ratings were at a historically high level. IPH Management decided that an authority figure would need to be appointed to maintain order and preserve the best interests of the company. After his debut, Bridges kept a very low profile, appearing almost exclusively on the IPH Pre-show and the Apptershow to announce matches for upcoming events. However, when The Foundation formed, Bridges became a stronger on-air presence. Bridges frequently attempted to reprimand The Foundation for their actions against IPH superstars.
Bridges was later fired by Henrietta Lumpy for actions she deemed "unfair" and demoted Bridges to the technical staff at IPH.
