As previously noted, announcer Tom Phillips was reportedly released from WWE this week after almost a decade of working for the company.
Mick Foley and AEW star Dax Harwood reacted to the news…
I’m surprised to see that WWE let Tom Phillips let go.
I always enjoyed his announcing, and thought his chemistry with his fellow commentators was professional, informative and entertaining. Announcing in @WWE is not easy, and he did it very well. https://t.co/BkE3EBRwdf

For my money, @TomHannifan was the best commentator I had the pleasure of working with. He worked so hard w/ us to get our story across. He put the words to our music. Maybe his biggest “downfall” was he enjoyed calling actual professional wrestling…
I’m sure I’ll see you soon
