Taz Issues Apology to WWE Ring Announcer Greg Hamilton

Former WWE personality Taz took to his Twitter account during Sunday’s WWE Hell in a Cell event to call out SmackDown Live ring announcer Greg Hamilton for being a “mark.”

Taz wrote, “The ring announcer is a mark from himself with this “one fall” shit. Wheres Chimel? #HIAC”

For those not aware of what the term “mark” means, here is the definition, courtesy of Wikipedia:

“A wrestling fan who enthusiastically believes that professional wrestling is not staged, or loses sight of the staged nature of the business while supporting their favorite wrestlers. Also sometimes used by industry insiders to describe a participant in the wrestling industry who believes that any aspect of the industry is more important than the money they can earn; for example, being preoccupied with holding a title belt rather than being paid more. Although this term has lost most of its original meaning over time; the term has been also known to be related to people have little or no knowledge in about the backstage, the industry as a whole or overzealously defends a major company or product while ignoring all others. This sub term is called a “product mark”. (e.g. WWE mark, TNA mark, ROH mark; etc.)”

UPDATE: Taz took to his Twitter account and issued an apology for his tweet:
