WWE hands release to Greg Hamilton
Hamilton was signed by WWE in 2015 and most famously introduced Shane McMahon as the “Best in the World” following Shane’s World Cup 2018 victory. It was on Tuesday night that Mike Johnson at PWInsider reported that Greg Hamilton was released by the company. Hamilton went on to confirm his departure on Wednesday morning with the following Instagram post:
fter 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. 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.
