WWE is making several cuts to their roster and now Tom Phillips is no longer with the company.

Phillips was the RAW announcer, but then he was moved out of that role after Adnan Virk entered the picture. Virk was moved out, and now Jimmy Smith is coming in. Now Tom Phillips is reportedly a free agent.

Tom Phillips has been released by WWE according to Fightful. The company has yet to confirm this announcement.

While not announced officially that Tom Phillips has been let go, he’s the latest in a string of releases affecting backstage personnel and even WWE Studios. We’ve reached out to WWE for confirmation but have yet to hear back. We aren’t sure of the specific arrangement in place for his departure from WWE.


Tom Phillips joined WWE in 2012 and he has worked for practically every brand under WWE’s umbrella. Some fans really liked him and called for Phillips to make a move back to RAW after Adnan Virk’s departure.

We will have to see what is next for Tom Phillips, but he is reportedly no longer with the company. We will continue monitoring this situation here at Ringside News.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
