Last week WWE publicly announced the release of 8 Superstars and now PWInsider is reporting that the company also released another talent but they didn’t publicly announce it. According to the report WWE has released Steve Lombardi, better known to wrestling fans as the Brooklyn Brawler.
Lombardi worked with WWE for 30 years and he’s worked in various roles during his tenure with the company. He’s been working mostly backstage with talent producing promos in recent years but he has made a few appearances on screen from time to time.
Last Friday WWE posted the following announcement on their website confirming the release of 8 talents:
“WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstars Damien Sandow, King Barrett, Santino Marella, Cameron, Hornswoggle, Alex Riley, El Torito and Zeb Colter as of today, Friday, May 6, 2016. WWE wishes them the best in all of their future endeavors.”
