WWE Releases Longtime Announcer, Scott Hall Thanks Fans, More

– Hugo Savinovich, color commentator for WWE’s Spanish language television and pay-per-view broadcasts since 1997, announced Wednesday on YouTube that he is parting ways with the organization.

Savinovich says organization officials informed him a few days ago that his expiring contract would not be renewed. He thanks Vince McMahon for giving him the opportunity to work for WWE fourteen years ago after he fell hard on drugs. He does not know if he will continue to call wrestling matches, but he does know that he will be writing a book dedicated to spreading the word of God.

— WWE Hall of Famer Greg “The Hammer” Valentine is advertised to appear for Pro Wrestling Destination at the Neil Road Recreation Center in Reno, Nevada on Saturday, November 5, 2011.

— Scott Hall posted a message on Twitter following ESPN’s profile piece tonight thanking fans for their support.

He wrote, “Thank u for all your nice comments & for always pulling for The Bad Guy!”
