their company and rehiring him after he did drugs and was jailed. Savinovich was married to former wrestler and Hall of Famer Wendi Richter. (thanks to Colin Vassallo)

    Maybe this will convince Impact Wrestling that fans want to see the ‘lesser known’, home grown stars actually rise to the top.

    Sad to know that Hugo was let go, he always brought the match to life with his crazy sayings in spanish, which were household sayings as well. This is the ‘bitter’ part of this bittersweet deal. The ‘sweet’ is with the new commentator, Marcelo Rodriguez (no relation to Ricardo), he brings the heel aspect. Hugo and Carlos were both face announcers, but Marcelo is nowhere near as annoying a heel as Michael Cole.

    @david r.: Yeah I was sad when I found out Hugo was leaving, too. I got into WWE by watching it in Spanish, so I love Hugo & Carlos. One thing worth mentioning, though, is that Hugo (much like his wrestler persona) was originally a heel announcer till around 1999-2000. But they both became so loved by fans in Latin America that WWE probably decided to make Hugo a face (or a tweener at times). Also, I presume it also made more sense to turn Hugo face once he became a Christian minister…

    Anyway, sad to see him go.
