WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel has died

Very sad news.

WWE ring announcer and Hall of Famer Howard Finkel has died at the age of 69.

Finkel was an iconic character in the WWE throughout the 1980s and '90s.

Although he was a ring announcer throughout the majority of his career in the world of wrestling, Finkel was not one to shy away from physical action.

In 1995, he battled his longtime rival Harvey Wippleman in a Tuxedo Match on Raw and later helped X-Pac shave Jeff Jarrett’s head in a Hair vs. Hair Match at SummerSlam 1998.

Finkel, often referred to as The Fink, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on 4 April, 2009.

In a statement, the WWE said that it extends its condolences to Finkel’s family, friends and fans.
