Best WWE Host from Cincy: Greg Hamilton

When locals turn on WWE SmackDown Live, they may see a familiar face in the form of host/announcer Greg Hamilton. Born Greg Hutson, Hamilton — who chose his stage name after his  hometown of Hamilton, Ohio — spent years on the entertainment and hosting circuit in places like Orlando and San Antonio before landing his starring SmackDown gig. Hamilton can be seen every Tuesday night on SmackDown Live as well as in the ring for WWE’s signature events like WrestleMania, Royal Rumble and more. He now resides in Cincinnati and when not announcing “Shinsukkkkkeeeeee Nakamuuura,” he can be found casually enjoying a lobster roll at Court Street Lobster Bar. A scroll through his Instagram (@greghamiltonwwe) shows the man as one part super host, one part world traveler and one part foodie, so don’t be surprised to see shots of Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse next to ringside snaps from around the world.
