Inside NXT WarGames

Hamilton recently took issue with rapper Westside Gunn sampling his voice on a track, saying he would use WWE lawyers to sue him.

The now deleted Instagram post read, "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…,” he wrote, adding an angry faced emoji to substitute a word. “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."

He continued to comment by saying, "It was 20k, but at noon eastern it’s $30k and we go to court,” He added in another comment, “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.”

Hamilton signed with WWE in 2015 and joined the NXT brand. He began working Main Event tapings in March 2016 and would become the regular ring announcer for WWE SmackDown.

He has removed WWE from his social media handle.

Before joining WWE, he worked as a host for the Orlando Magic.

WWE has not confirmed the release.
