The wrestling world remembers Howard Finkel

WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel died today (April 16) at age 69.

Finkel, or “The Fink”, was one of the voices you hear in your head when you think about pro wrestling. If you love this wonderful, weird business/art, you’ve heard him announce the names of some of your favorite wrestlers and the stipulations & results of their most famous matches. It doesn’t even matter if you were watching during his 1980s and 1990s heyday. Either through his sporadic 21st century appearances or through replays & highlights, Finkel will always be part of the soundtrack of WWE, and wrestling, history.

Given all that, it’s no surprise his death has prompted a lot of reactions. Here’s a sampling from around the industry, where people who were colleagues, mentees, or just fans of The Fink honor a legend.
