Last week eight WWE superstars were released by WWE. That was a lot for one day, but the company clearly isn’t done releasing talent or other WWE personnel no matter how long they’ve been with them.
It was quite the surprise to learn that “The Brooklyn Brawler,” who’s real name is Steve Lombardi, has been released from the company after being with WWE for thirty years.
His release actually occurred last week during the cuts of the other eight superstars that were revealed at that time, but the news didn’t drop until earlier today that he was done with the company after three decades.
Lombardi began his WWE career competing under his real name in 1983. Despite being from Detroit originally, his gimmick of “The Brooklyn Brawler” stuck with him as he served mainly as an enhancement talent for WWE for many years.
In recent years, he’s been featured on WWE programming, but his most recent role has been that of a backstage producer, which is the role he was released from last week.
The following tweets were posted by Lombardi on Twitter, but they may or may not be related to his release from WWE:
