Mick Foley Reminisces About Howard Finkel: ‘He Had A Way Of Making Everything Sound Amazing’

After the unfortunate passing of WWE announcer Howard Finkel, many WWE superstars have come out to share their stories of the legendary figure, and Mick Foley was the most recent, coming to SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio to talk about Finkel.

“He [Howard Finkel] had a way of making everything sound amazing,” he said. “I can’t tell you who it was that wasn’t able to make the event, but it was a main event superstar. It was along the lines of an Andre the Giant, and Howard would go out and break the bad news. ‘Unfortunately, Andre the Giant cannot be here, but taking his place – Hillbilly Jim.’ And he would have those 19,000 people be like, ‘Yes, that’s exactly who we want to see in our main event tonight.’”

Foley closed the story out by talking about how amazing of a man Finkel was, possibly even greater than his in-ring persona. “He was not only, as far as I’m concerned, the best to ever do his job, but as we who were fortunate enough to know him can attest, he was also a very dear man and a wonderful, wonderful guy.”
