Five decades for "The Fink"
In the late '70s , three brothers known as the Bee Gees ruled the pop charts, bell-bottomed jeans and platform shoes signaled the height of fashion and World Wrestling Entertainment employeed an enthusiastic ring announcer with impressive intonation and a take-notice timbre named Howard Finkel.
More than 30 years later, Howard's distinctive vocal skills continue to thrill WWE audiences. His most recent stints announcing in New Hampshire and Massachusetts mark an amazing milestone: Howard has ring announced WWE events in the '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s.
His distinguished career began in 1976. Howard, who then worked as an usher in the New Haven (Conn.) Coliseum, met Vince McMahon and was offered an opportunity at the microphone. In the years since, "The Fink," as he is affectionately known, would cement his legacy inside such venues as Madison Square Garden, where he would capture the emotions of the WWE Universe, not only as the voice of the company but also as one of its most ardent fans. Throughout some of WWE's most pivotal and poignant moments, Howard has been there to convey the temperament of the WWE Universe and to bestow authority upon the company's most worthy competitors with the words that became The Fink's signature call of a title changing hands: "… and neeewww World Champion …!"
Howard's lasting achievements were recognized in 2009 when he was inducted into the esteemed WWE Hall of Fame. Although he only competed in the squared circle a handful of times throughout his career, the venerable ring announcer achieved that rarest of honors over his tenure, the enduring respect of the WWE faithful, and the genuine admiration of those who have worked alongside him.
Congratulations, Fink, and here's to many more years to come!
