Steve Lombardi, better known to the WWE Universe as The Brooklyn Brawler, was released after 30 years with WWE.
Pro Wrestling Insider reported that Brawler was released this past Friday, along with a few other members of the roster such as Wade Barrett, Damien Sandow, Hornswoggle, Cameron, El Torito, Santino Marella, Zeb Colter and Alex Riley.
Although he hasn’t been active in the ring for many years, he has made occasional in-ring appearances and has worked behind the scenes. WWE hasn’t commented on Brawler’s release, but he sent out some ambiguous tweets that could possibly be regarding his release.
The Brooklyn made his WWF debut in 1989 and although he lost a majority of matches, he was still a fan favorite especially in hometown of New York.
Thank you so much for all you’ve done in your 30 years with WWE, Brawler!
