```Something like...

Off[Solve::"ifun"]
Solve[{Tan[w1] == x, Tan[w2] == y,
z == TrigExpand@Tan[w2 - w1]}, z, {w1, w2}]

{{z -> (-x + y)/(1 + x y)}}

or

Off[Solve::"ifun"]
Solve[TrigExpand /@ {Tan[w1] == x, Tan[w2] == y,
z == Tan[w2 - w1]}, z, {w1, w2}]

{{z -> (-x + y)/(1 + x y)}}

Watch out for "artifact" solutions and branching, of course.
