Finkel Reveals His WWE HOF Inductor
-- In a blog on the WWE Universe, Howard Finkel said he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by fellow Hall of Famer "Mean Gene" Okerlund the night before WrestleMania XXV. "The Fink" said he's glad to be recognized by the company for the passion he brought to his job as a ring announcer.
"It is an elite honor to be recognized for what I have brought to the table, as it relates to the ring announcing that I have done through the years," Finkel wrote. "I love what I do in the ring, am passionate about it, and continue to enjoy it today when the opportunity presents itself."
WWE announced his induction into the Hall of Fame on Tuesday night's episode of ECW, which was followed by a video package showcasing his humorous antics in the company.
"Everything else that has happened to me from a standpoint of 'ha-ha' ...was what it was," Finkel wrote. "That was all just a part of being 'The Fink.'"
