— WWE’s website interviewed Hall of Famer Howard Finkel about his return at Survivor Series last night to introduce CM Punk and then declare Punk the new WWE Champion. The Fink said last night is one of his top 2 favorite Madison Square Garden moments:
“I’d have to say Survivor Series 2011 will be in my top three favorite Garden moments. I’ll forever remember it because of the rush I got and the adulation of the WWE Universe in New York City. It meant so much to me because I have always given everything I have when I ring announce. As I said when I was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, no matter who I was introducing, I always wanted them to feel as though they were heading into the main event.”
