Many are familiar with Cincinnati native Greg Hamilton from his role as a WWE host and ring announcer for FOX's Friday Night SmackDown. But there's much more to the guy behind the mic.

Greg Hutson grew up in Hamilton, Ohio — hence his stage name — and now lives in downtown Cincinnati. He has had a lifelong passion for cooking, stemming from memorable home-cooked meals with his family, which has developed while traveling for work and experiencing new cultures and flavors along the way. 

Hutson said in an interview that he and one of his colleagues, WWE star Shinsuke Nakamura, make it a point to visit and try new restaurants while touring, which fuels his passion and interest in cooking even further. 

Hutson recently decided to share his passion with the world through a new IGTV series called WWEats. He debuted his first episode on April 8, where he made an Asian-style short rib meal with chipotle-lime crema corn and blistered peppers. 

For the video series, Hutson teamed up with local videographer Emily Palm and plans to continue the series weekly.

A few recipes he's considering in the future? Hutson said he's looking forward to debuting a video on how to make a great burger, using his meat grinder and a blend of his own meats, and flatbreads with all ingredients made-from-scratch, even the sauce. 

Hutson said he was blown away by the initial response to his videos and is looking forward to creating more for his viewers.
