VIDEO DOWNLOAD - Brooklyn Brawler Shoot Interview
There are only a few employees that can say that they have been around the WWWF, WWF and even the WWE for the last 4 decades. There is only one wrestler that I can think of who has been in the ring with every major name that ever graced the squared circle for the WWE in all the major decades. He pledged loyalty to the McMahon family and worked his way up from being a preliminary wrestler to being a major part of production. He was the ultimate enhancement talent that always seemed to get over more with the fans than his peers. He had a look to him and a personality that you could never forget. He might not have won a lot of matched but that never mattered to this man. He was always winning in his mind because he was doing what he loved. He was a fan that broke into the business by paying his dues. He got to see the world 4 times over and never looked back. The WWE was his family and Steve Lombardi AKA Brooklyn Brawler finally sat down for his very first ever shoot interview with RF VIDEO to talk about it all.
You will learn how he got friendly with the WWWF crew when they came to NY and what happened early on at the bars that got him his lucky break. Steve talks about breaking into the business as a green kid and who helped him out. What was it like the first time he got work when Vince Sr was still in charge. He was in the ring with Bruno, Pedro, Backland and all of the greats from the 70’s and early 80’s. Steve saw the business change right in front of his eyes when Vince Sr passed away and Vince Jr took over and started to expand his company by taking it to the national level. Steve saw the wrestling boom when the Hulkster came into the company. Steve talks about being close friends with Hogan and you will hear how they traveled together on the road.
