– Producer and former WWE referee Tim White has been let go by World Wrestling Entertainment.

White is also well known for being the owner of “The Friendly Tap” in Rhode Island, which was the setting for a number of WWF/WWE vignettes on television over the years. His last on-air appearances featured a series of “ attempts” by White on WWE.com, as White was “despondent” over injuries that caused him to retire from refereeing.

– Former ECW brand star Kevin Thorn (real name Kevin Fertig and also the former Mordecai) was also released by WWE today. Thorn had been working in developmental where it was rumored he was coming back to the main roster with a new gimmick.
