Rich Brennan was among several of the recent cuts from WWE, and was largely silent until this week. The former WWE announcer issued a statement to Uproxx, where he said that he holds no ill-will towards the WWE, and was proud of what he accomplished there.

Brennan also spoke about his future, saying he's like to get involved in calling hockey. You can see his 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.
