WWE Release Rich Brennan


WWE announcer Rich Brennan has been released … this according to sources with direct knowledge.

Our sources say the company informed Brennan of their decision Wednesday afternoon, but at this point it’s unclear what caused WWE to sour on the announcer.

Brennan made his debut in 2014 working for NXT as the play-by-play man alongside Corey Graves and was eventually promoted to lead announcer on SmackDown. Things changed though, and it wasn’t long before he was shuffled to backstage interviewer.

Rich announced for numerous hockey and arena football teams before landing his dream gig with WWE, according to their website — but it’s unclear what he plans to do next.

Live results for WWE Raw 4/25/16

Hartford, CT hosts tonight's Monday Night Raw, the go-home show before WWE Payback. Already confirmed for tonight, Sami Zayn faces Rusev, Roman Reigns takes on Alberto Del Rio, AJ Styles is up against Sheamus and we have the official in-ring match debut of Anderson & Gallows, taking on The Usos. A packed show and with Shane apparently in charge again, but the threat of Triple H & Stephanie returning at any point, tonight could be interesting. Keep it here for all the latest.

In memory of Joanie 'Chyna' Laurer: 1969-2016.

Tonight's show opens with a recap of last week's action with AJ & Roman, followed by the Raw intro.

Shane McMahon is making his way out to the ring to open tonight. He says that he's still here thanks to the fans. Payback is on Sunday and tonight it's about making more opportunities and matches for the new guys and have some fun. Stephanie's music hits and she heads down to join him. She says that she knows what these fans want because she was born in the local Hartford hospital. Shane says she knows how to remove the air from the room. She says that she's been busy, hence why she hasn't been around. Tonight will be Shane's last night in charge, because on Sunday, Vince will decide once and for all who will take over Monday Night Raw. He asks the fans what they think and they overwhelmingly support Shane. He politely asks Stephanie to leave the ring, but Stephanie refuses as it's 'her' ring. Shane reminds her that he is in charge for tonight, and so orders security to come out to help her leave 'our' ring. 'Na-Na-Na Hey-Hey-Hey Goodbye' from the crowd as she's escorted away. She doesn't take to being forced out and slaps one of the security guards. The other two then force her out to the back.

Shane says he enjoyed that and now says that we're ready for action and brings out the #1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Title, AJ Styles. AJ makes his way to the ring, he'll be taking on Sheamus next.

Back from break and Sheamus makes his way down the ramp.

Match 1 - AJ Styles vs. Sheamus
Good match. Styles wins with a phenomenal forearm.
WINNER: Sheamus

Anderson & Gallows show up on the stage and stare down at the ring. AJ looks confused.

Roman backstage and The Usos pop in to his locker room. Both are adamant that AJ, Gallows & Anderson are collaborating with each other. They says they have each other's back tonight.

New Day make their way out and will be cutting a promo next.

Back from commercial and New Day say that the tournament has been a great success and Payback will crown new #1 contenders to the WWE Tag belts and they'll partying like it's 1999. The Vaudevillains come out and Aiden sings the Tag Title line and says they will party like it's 1899, with Gotch saying they'll beat the puny Enzo & Cass. Enzo & Cass now come out and make their usual introductions and Cass say THEY will become #1 contenders to the tag belts because the Villains are SAWFT. Xavier is hyped for this... because... NEW DAY ROCKS!

Anderson & Gallows backstage, walking out of AJ's locker room. They'll be in in-ring action next.

John Cena tweeted earlier today, saying he'll be back in action on May 30th, the Memorial Day edition of Raw.

A video package highlighting the friendship between Owens & Zayn in the past is coming up next.

Renee backstage with AJ, saying he's looking forward to Payback. Anderson & Gallows pop in and says they won't interfere with AJ on Sunday as they know he's ready to become WWE Champ. But they're only here for a fair fight and if AJ needs it, he can have it. I sense something is happening here.

We now get the video package covering the bond between Owens & Zayn since their childhood and how it's developed to today. Fantastic job by the production crew here.

Match 4 - Stardust vs. Apollo Cruz
OK match. Cruz wins with his powerbomb finisher.
WINNER - Apollo Cruz

Dean Ambrose is backstage, looks like he's heading to the ring to say something next.

Dean's music hits and he heads down the ramp and gets in the ring. They recap Raw from last week. He says he was supposed to host another episode of the Ambrose Asylum, but he asked Shane to cancel it for this week, because he's focused on getting payback on Jericho. Jericho likes to say he's the best in the world and Dean think that he himself is pretty good. Ambrose fights for respect, Jericho cheats. Ambrose deals with what's put in front of him, whereas Jericho complains. He calls Jericho out and after a while, Jericho comes out.

Jericho says he's offended by being called out and refuses to fight Dean in a dump like Hartford. He reminds him that he is the best in the world at what he does. He elevates everyone he gets in the ring with and on Sunday, he will give Dean the match of his life. He, for a minute, wants Dean to kiss his $1500 boots, but changes his mind. He wants Dean to apologize to him for disrespecting him. Dean says he's sorry for his expensive boots, his scarf and all Y2J's insecurities and for Sunday, but he's not sorry for this... and the two begin to brawl with each other. Jericho gets the upper hand and beats the hell out of Ambrose on the announce table, culminating with a Walls Of Jericho on top of the desk.

They recap Shane & Stephanie's altercation earlier tonight.

They recap Dean & Y2J from a few minutes ago.

Natlaya is already in the ring, and she's facing Emma. Charlotte & Ric come out, with Charlotte joining the commentary team for this match.

Later on, it's Del Rio vs. Reigns.

Puerto Rico promo.

Miz & Maryse are cutting a promo, saying he doesn't understand why people don't think that he should be a long-term IC champ. He says that the belt is legendary, with all the great names that have held that title. He mocks the 'sheep' in the crowd who are part of the Cesaro Section as he knows that people are better than that, they're not internet trolls or nerds. Cesaro comes out and says that the WWE Universe are too clever to fall for Miz's attempts. Miz does De Niro & Joe Pesci impersonations. Cesaro says that the credits will run on Miz's reign on Sunday. Miz then uses Dirty Harry quotes. And Cesaro says he will make his day... UGH! Miz tries to attack Cesaro but he uppercuts him. He goes for the swing on Miz but Maryse lies on top of Miz.
