Greg Hamilton Apologizes For Taking Dig At Lio Rush’s Retirement

By | June 9, 2021

Lio Rush announced that he has retired from pro wrestling. This was a shocking decision, but he made the choice to focus on other projects outside of pro wrestling. Tony Khan and others have since tweeted out to wish Lio the best of luck.

WWE SmackDown announcer Greg Hamilton didn’t have the nicest things to say about Lio Rush’s retirement. He tweeted out a scathing message that he later deleted.

On June 9th, Hamilton logged in once again and sent another tweet, this time addressing what he said. After admitting that he was wrong, Greg Hamilton said that Lio Rush will be missed in the pro wrestling world.

I can admit when I’m wrong….and I was wrong. We don’t have to see eye to eye backstage; but Lionel Green (Lio Rush) is an incredible father as well as a talent. I have all the respect in the world for that. No one made me type this. Just owning my mistakes. He’ll be missed.

Lio Rush is young and he could always come back. He already stated that he will finish up his NJPW obligations once his injury is healed. So, he will likely wrestle again, if only to wrap up that contract.

We’ll have to see what’s next for Lio Rush, but he seems to have a lot of other interests outside of pro wrestling that he can now lean on.

Will you miss having Lio Rush around the pro wrestling world? Sound off in the comments!
