• Top Ring Announcer Released From WWE

According to PWInsider, WWE ring announcer Greg Hamilton was released from WWE earlier this week.

He signed with WWE back in 2015 and started ring announcing in NXT. He was brought to the main roster in 2016 and he has been WWE’s top ring announcer ever since.

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…”

No word yet on what exactly led to Greg’s release from WWE. We’ll keep you updated here on WWFOldSchool.com and on our WrestleFeed App.
