Mauro Ranallo Rejoins WWE As Part of NXT Commentary Team
Expect NXT chants to be replaced with MAMMA MIA henceforth.
Despite regularly dragging WWE following his mysterious departure, Mauro Ranallo has revealed that he will be rejoining WWE.
Serving as a member of the NXT commentary team, Ranallo is now a very busy man. He’s a mainstay with Bellator, the announcer for Mayweather vs. McGregor (which will probably give him enough money to retire on), and is now featuring on Wednesday nights.
Despite the rumours, Ranallo has been quick to dismiss any bullying from JBL as part of his decision to initially leave the company.
Here’s the announcement:
THE NXT CHAPTER BEGINS! WWE and I mutually agreed to end my responsibilities on SmackDown having nothing to do with rumors about disputes. As I remained under contract with WWE, we discussed a variety of options. Despite originally agreeing to part ways, there was always a desire to continue working together. We have come to terms on a new agreement that benefits both WWE and me, and I am thrilled to announce I will now be part of the NXT broadcasting team.
You expect the Ranallo we saw at CWC to make a return, the shrieking, passionate caller who earned himselves plenty of fans. NXT is less scripted (somehow despite the show being pre-taped) than its bigger brothers, so Ranallo should have the freedom he need.
Happy to see Ranallo back with WWE? Drop a comment.
