WWE have reportedly parted ways with SmackDown ring announcer Greg Hamilton.

In March 2016 Hamilton was 'called up' to the main roster and began working as the ring announcer for WWE Main Event and WWE Superstars. Shortly after, he would become the regular ring announcer for WWE SmackDown.
Hamilton made headlines recently after he took issue with rapper Westside Gunn, who he claims had used a sample of his voice in a song. The former SmackDown ring announcer stated on social media that WWE lawyers would be taking legal action against Gunn on his behaf, but there is no word as to whether this incident had any impact on Hamilton's departure from the company.
