I’m surprised to see that WWE let Tom Phillips let go.— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) May 27, 2021
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
Couldn’t agree more. One of my favourite commentators both in and out of the ring.— Flash Morgan Webster (@Flash_Morgan) May 27, 2021
I’ll always be grateful for @TomHannifan for taking a chance on me and also offering me a chance to rediscover what a loved about wrestling at a time when I was starting to question it.— Matt Rehwoldt (@DramaKingMatt) May 27, 2021
What a damn pro who will be doing great stuff going forward I’m sure -- pic.twitter.com/SQtsmX25Pl
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...— Uncle Dax FTR (@DaxFTR) May 27, 2021
I’m sure I’ll see you soon
