It is understood that former UFC commentator Jimmy Smith would be taking up the role of color commentator on Monday Night Raw and immediately he would join the red brand starting his work from the upcoming edition Raw.

Several popular figures have reacted to the release of Phillips and he liked them on Twitter:

Jon Alba said:

“Tom Phillips was always extremely kind to me, provided me with feedback, and I thought, was the most-developed broadcast talent of the last decade and a half.

He’s a very good broadcaster. I hope he gets another shot, especially outside of wrestling, because he deserves it. #WWE”

Danny Loquasto said:

Very grateful have called @TomHannifan a colleague. Working with him made me immensely better as a commentator and broadcaster, and his confidence in me turned my lifelong dream into a reality. He’s one of the absolute best and I’m excited for his future.

Matt Rehwoldt said:

“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.

What a damn pro who will be doing great stuff going forward I’m sure”

AEW star Dax Harwood of FTR said:

“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”
