-WWE released Christian (a/k/a Jey Reso) from his talent contract recently, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
-WWE also released longtime employee Steve Lombardi, who wrestled as Brooklyn Brawler, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com.
Powell’s POV: Christian hasn’t wrestled in over a year and the belief is that it is due to a history of concussions. It appears he has a separate deal for Edge & Christian Show he co-stars in for WWE Network. Meanwhile, Lombardi worked behind the scenes for WWE and has been with them for over 30 years. Thus, his release came as a shocker to many people. WWE has not publicly announced any information regard the Christian or Lombardi news.
