Dan Masters, ring announcer, tragically passes away in El Salvador

Dan Masters, a ring announcer for boxing, mixed martial arts (MMA) and pro wrestling events, has unfortunately passed away from injuries sustained in car accident while in El Salvador.

Masters, who had more than 25 years’ experience in the business, tragically died on Tuesday, September 27. Confirmation of his passing was posted on Facebook by a relative.

“Rest in peace to a remarkable, larger-than-life man, my Uncle Daniel. As a kid, he made me feel like the coolest person on this planet—talking on the radio, getting “wake up” phone calls from “famous” wrestlers and shoutouts at his wrestling events. He was the star of the show everywhere he went but made me feel special. He was taken too soon and will be missed tremendously by the people who knew and loved him 💙”

In his last Facebook post, Masters posted a video where he appears to be sitting in the passenger seat of a small plane landing on an airstrip. In the comments, Master posted “El Salvador.” The post was made September 26, one day prior to his death.

According to SlamWrestling.net, “Masters has worked for countless promotions, including World Wrestling Entertainment from 2002-04 and was a part of Jody Hamilton’s Deep South Wrestling promotion. Most recently, he had been in the Women Of Wrestling promotion.”
