Jody Hamilton posted the following statement at www.dswrestling.com: I want to thank all the fans we have at DSW for being the greatest and most loyal fans anyone could ever ask for.
Since WWE has shut DSW down I have experienced some of the most emotional situations that I have ever been involved in, from emotional farwell’s with some of the DSW talent, to answering emotional questions from fans that were deeply hurt by this.
I have no answers for the fans, for the talent involved I can say from the bottom of my heart that I love you very much.
After being on an emotional rollercoaster for most of the day and desperately trying to keep it all together it was my 7 yr old grandson that caused me to loose it, (big time) Christian, overheard my daughter telling his sister that WWE had let me go and I wouldn’t be working at the DSW arena anymore, he then told his mother he wanted to get some money from his bank and open a lemonade stand, sell a lot of lemonade and give the money to Pop since he doesn’t have a job,such a sweet, loving, and considerate child.(this is a true story).
Thank you for caring Christian, but Pop will be OK even without a job. It’s really heart-warming to me that so many people have responded to me being let go. Once again I want to thank the DSW talent, the DSW fans and most of all my family for all of your support. This will never put or keep me down, I will be back
