• Greg Hamilton Comments On Getting Released From WWE

As we reported before, top WWE ring announcer Greg Hamilton was released from the company earlier this week.

He went on to issue the following statement on Instagram regarding his release:

“After 6 years and 52 weeks a year, it’s time to say ‘goodbye’.

First and foremost, don’t let the internet or social media gas you up; this was a mutual respect departure from a great company. Nothing but respect from both sides. It’s business. We all know our worth.

Also understand that what you see on social media is exactly that. It’s not real life. Especially for your favorite Superstars. They are human beings with real lives, and INCREDIBLE human beings. The hate, the bullying…that is read and internalized by real human beings…not characters. That needs to be said for my friends.

And as I get older, my mother is in her 70’s; my sister Jessi who has cerebral palsy…those are my priorities. Not chasing fame, not being on television. 52 weeks a year became too much. Without our mental health, we have nothing.

But man…what a ride…there are truly no fans like the #WWEuniverse. Wow. 6 continents over 6 years; embracing your love and passion has truly changed me as a person. I am forever grateful. ❤️

And for one last time…

‘ONE FALL’!!!! (I don’t work there anymore so you’re allowed to say it now)”

The above mentioned “don’t let the internet or social media gas you up” part is in regards to fans thinking that his recent exchange with Westside Gunn resulted in his WWE release.

Hamilton recently called out Westside Gunn for sampling his voice without authorization. Here’s what he wrote on Instagram:

“Well @westsidegunn @buffalokidsgallery let’s hope that since you STOLE my voice for your incoherent kindergarten fables that you saved up enough delivering for Door Dash….because….You….are….🤬’d.

You’ll be paying me for years….apologize and I’ll think about not collecting every dime for the rest of your life….or I can just get WWE lawyers….that’s ok too. Settle with my lawyer. And don’t EVER use my voice again….so wrong.”

Hamliton wanted them to pay $30,000:

“It was 20k, but at noon eastern it’s $30k and we go to court.

Tick… tock… the longer this goes, the longer I have in court… you ready to settle or do u wanna dance with WWE lawyers? It’s a slam dunk. Price goes up by the day…”
