Greg Hamilton on Lio Rush's announcement
There were recent reports that revealed Lio Rush was retiring from professional wrestling after sustaining injuries to his shoulder that left him unable to lift his son. The news caught the attention of Greg Hamilton, who then responded to the story with a cutting message:
"Wow.. unreal.. if we all didn't have our own lives and families to take care of I just might pretend to give a ****. (On behalf of the wrestling family and community who work for a living). On to the gym."
He quickly deleted the tweet, but it was spotted and shared by other users.
Hamilton went on to apologize for his tweet the next day. He said that he and Rush didn't see eye to eye, but he had been wrong to make such a statement about Rush when the latter was not in a good place in his life:
"I can admit when I’m wrong….and I was wrong. "He added, "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.”
Hamilton said that no one made him type the words he wrote about Rush. He added that he was not Lio Rush's best friend, but the wrestler still deserved respect for his accomplishments inside and outside the ring.
