Two weeks back, Rich Brennan was released by WWE in what could be considered the first of many to come for the company in the month of May.

Although his time in WWE has come to an end, he’s been very quiet, and the reasoning behind his release hasn’t been revealed.

It seems from a recent statement made by Brennan with that he has nothing but gratitude for the company and his experience with the company.

You can read the full statement below:

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

I’m 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.”

“I’m 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.

There’s 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.”
