Mike Chioda was employed by WWE for 31 years as a referee. He was released last week as a part of massive company-wide cuts. Now he is breaking his silence.

Chioda had no bad words for his former employer. He thanked WWE for the amazing years he got to spend in the ring officiating historic matches. He worked with icons and had nothing but respect for everyone during these unprecedented times.

Mike Chioda spent decades as a referee for WWE. After his 90-day non-compete clause is over in July we will see what his next move is. Chioda will land on his feet and he certainly has a great attitude about this awful situation.
