All Elite Wrestling released Spanish language announcer Willie Urbina today, has confirmed.

The release came hours after audio of Urbina, apparently not aware his mic was broadcasting, mocked Hikaru Shida's accent during a conversation with other announcers as they were discussing who would handle the Spanish translation of Shida's promo for the last night's Spanish language broadcast of Dynamite, was shared by fans on social media.  The audio clip became a major topic of discussion on Twitter and other social media platflorms overnight.

Urbina had previously worked for Impact Wrestling from 2006-2014 after breaking into the business for IWA Puerto Rico and Carlos Colon's World Wrestling Council.  He has also done Spanish language announcing for New Japan.
