Gerald Brisco released by WWE

Legendary wrestler and long-time WWE employee Gerald Brisco has been released by WWE.

Brisco confirmed the news today via Twitter. There were reports in April that he was let go but he was actually furloughed at the time.

Brisco has been with the company since 1984 and was considered one of Vince McMahon’s closest advisors, so his release would come as a surprise to many who thought he would be there for life. In recent years, he scouted talent at amateur wrestling events and he helped find wrestlers like Brock Lesnar, Jason Jordan and Chad Gable.

Brisco tweeted: “Ok, want to get this out the right way. Last night I received a call from @wwe Chairman Of The board @VinceMcMahon to let me know after 36 years of dedication to @wwe i an no longer needed. I’m ok with this. I will still be around to help talent. More info will follow. Thanks”
