Legendary WWE announcer Howard Finkel dies at 69

Recommended Posts

It's posted in the main thread, but for those who don't lurk but remember him, he was one of the best, if not the best.





Finkel appeared at every WrestleMania from 1985 to 2016, which was the other well-known WrestleMania streak besides that of The Undertaker. Finkel transitioned into a backstage role once he was off-camera.


There was no cause of death provided by WWE.

I’m beginning to wonder if this was COVID related and he was the “backstage personality” that reportedly came down with it. The lack of cause of death is odd, but I could just be over sensitive from the situation.

Still no official cause of death released, however, it may have been from complications caused by the stroke he suffered in 2018.
