    Mauro Ranallo Confirms He and WWE Part Ways (Still under contract until August)

    Ex-SmackDown Live announcer Mauro Ranallo has confirmed he parted ways with WWE … but contrary to the rumor mill, he says it has nothing to do with JBL bullying him.

    Mauro released a statement to Newsweek saying, “WWE and I have mutually agreed to part ways. It has nothing to do with JBL.” The company reiterated that he’s under contract until August.


    WWE also spoke with the publication and said that although no formal complaint was filed, they investigated the recent alleged situation with John Layfield.


    Since he still has a job there, it’s clear their search yielded no results.


    JBL also sent a statement to Newsweek: “Admittedly, I took part in locker room pranks that existed within the industry years ago. WWE addressed my behavior and I responded accordingly, yet my past is being brought up because of recent unfounded rumors. I apologize if anything I said playing ‘the bad guy’ on a TV show was misconstrued.”
    Source: Pro Wrestling Sheet

    Ranallo probably accepted the settlement Meltzer was talking about a few days ago. It's really a shame, he was one of the better announcers WWE had gotten in the new era. I wonder how he feels about being held under contract.

    A shame that he's gone, definitely one of the best play by play announcers they've had come through the company in quite some time. I don't know what the deal is with the reasoning for it and whatnot, and we'll perhaps never know the real reason, especially if he's had to sign some gagging order or whatever in order to get some settlement.

    Good news for Tom Phillips though, a great chance for him to fully step up now to become the #2 play by play announcer in WWE. Now, they only need to source some more decent colour commentators and they're sorted, since they're severely lacking in that department.

    So JBL did the JBL bullying piece of shit routine, WWE lost a great announcer, and Mauro got paid. Wonderful all around

    Good thing JBL is an indispensable part of the WWE Universe. Couldn't imagine that WWE surviving without him.

    Sucks for Mauro, but at least he should be getting a big chunk of money. And it mostly sucks for us fans, who have to deal with shittier commentary without him.

    Well that's that neatly swept under the rug. As you were everyone.

    I'm gonna miss my weekly dose of hip hop references. His commentary is how I got all of my rap news.

    JBL sets off Mauro's depression and he still has a job while Mauro quits because of a hostile work environment. Let's be real, JBL only wished he had half the talent that Mauro has. This company has a habit of keeping around yes men regardless of how little talent they have and how much they harass people backstage. Remember when Michael Hayes threw a racial slur at Alberto and it caused a fight? Alberto got fired for that. And can anyone consider Hayes this great creative mind backstage? Look at the show.

    You're totally mixing backstage stories up by the way.

    I'm more of a creative mind than Michael Hayes...

    Addressing a bigger picture isn't mixing up stories, but hey whatever.



    Mauro is going to be a big loss. It's not like they have a JR/Joey Styles level commentator there. Though Corey Graves has his moments.

    Okay, I will.

    You're still mixing up stories and not fact checking to enforce this uneducated rant. Michael Hayes has a reputation (the Mark Henry fiasco, google that) but you're making shit up and confusing him with a social media guy that pissed of Del Rio. As far as I know Hayes had nothing to do with the Del Rio situation a few years back and you're thinking of someone else. So your post just sounds like mindless slander and doesn't prove anything. I guess it highlights the problem of racism in the company with how many stories and issues there have been in the company in the last, well, since fucking forever. That seemingly will never go away. But I always get a chuckle at fans that try to pinpoint the problem and call for a hanging when they don't even know what's fully going on (in this case, don't know their stories)
