Rich Brennan Comments on His WWE Departure, His Future

Quote:
We were shocked at last monthís announcement that WWE had parted ways with former NXT and Smackdown play-by-play man and backstage announcer Rich Brennan.

After a few weeks of general ďwhat the hell happened,Ē we reached out to Rich for a comment. He was nice enough to send us an exclusive statement, because we are Richie Brennan ride or die.

As someone who grew up as a wrestling fan, Iím beyond appreciative to have had the opportunity to do something so many dream about.

Iím incredibly grateful to have learned from so many great minds in the business. In particular, I will always cherish learning from and getting to know Dusty Rhodes.

Calling the action for some of the cornerstone moments of NXT as it grew was amazing. Hopefully my enthusiasm and passion translated to viewers.

Iím proud of what I accomplished during my run with WWE. I know I grew as a wrestling announcer, and definitely got better as an all-around play-by-announcer and TV presenter.

I can hold my head up high knowing I worked hard, treated everyone with respect, and generally went about my business quietly behind the scenes.

Thereís excitement for what the next chapter brings. I have a passion for hockey and would enjoy calling games again, and feel my style of calling wrestling could fit somewhere if the opportunity arises.


Translation: Hire Rich to do something already.

I'm glad he hasn't ruled out calling wrestling again. I actually enjoyed him on commentary.

Re: Rich Brennan Comments on His WWE Departure, His Future

Rich Brennan is a class act who lived the dream in WWE as a commentator for NXT, I liked his style it was face-like but at the same time had all the enthusiasm in his work. Wishing he gets hired fast to continue his commentary preferably for a wrestling company elsewhere.



Thanks to Drago & Fringe for their generosity

I didn't dislike him and wish he would land on his feet somewhere in wrestling or as an announcer in general.

Re: Rich Brennan Comments on His WWE Departure, His Future

Why do people even bother making these boilerplate statements?


You're a frog.
