WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel has been dealing with some health issues for the past few months.

The 68-year-old is hailed by the WWE Universe as the best ring-announcer of all time. Finkel is also the longest-tenured employee in WWE and celebrated 38 years of employment with the company in April, 2018.

Finkel began working for Vince McMahon Sr.’ World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in 1975, two years before he was handed a permanent role as a ring announcer. Howard Finkel coined the word “WrestleMania” based on the Beatlemania team.

Howard’s on-air role with WWE was reduced in the early 2000’s when the company hired Lilian Garcia and Tony Chimel but he continued to work behind-the-scenes at the company offices in Stamford, CT. In recent years, he was the ring announcer for the annual Hall Of Fame ceremony but hasn’t been a part of WrestleMania since 2016. He told friends in 2017 that he could not travel to WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida due to sickness.
