    It's not his voice. It's WWE property like everything else they've sampled. They'll probably work out a settlement if they even think it's worth pursuing. This is someone that has a relationship with a number of their stars and is seemingly well liked across the industry.

    EDIT: He deleted the Instagram post. Someone got in his ear.
