Former WWE SmackDown ring announcer Tony Chimel, who had been with the company since 1991, was one of a number of names let go from the company on Friday, according to a report from PWInsider.com.

The report notes that the belief is that alongside Chimel, around 10-15 staff members were also let go from the company, mostly in the logistical and behind the scenes department, with Derek Casselman, who had been the Director of Venue Merchandise, Remote Operations for the company and had been part of the staff since 1993 another one of the names to be let go.
