When ECW went bankrupt, Lou went to work for other pro wrestling companies such as Combat Zone Wrestling, PWF and MECW. At one point D'Angeli was working with Steve Corino on booking the PWF. D'Angeli last appeared in a ring as a manager in February 2003 with Alexis Laree (Mickie James) and Justin Credible. D'Angeli had a cameo at WWE ECW One Night Stand 2006 when Rob Van Dam defeated John Cena for the WWE Championship.
More recently D'Angeli appeared as part of Montel Vontavious Porter's entourage on WWE Saturday Night's Main Event from Madison Square Garden when Evander Holyfield, in place of MVP, had a boxing match with Matt Hardy.
