The voice Of NXT, Mauro Ranallo, did not appear at Survivor Series on Sunday. While Michael Cole said during the broadcast that this was because Ranallo blew his voice commentating at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, the actual reason was related to critical tweets from Corey Graves. Cole did note that Ranallo would return on this week’s episode of NXT.
On Saturday, Graves tweeted: “Just for the record guys. I know you wouldn’t know it, but there’s actually a WWE Hall of Famer AND a former Ring of Honor Champion on commentary. I’d imagine they have a lot to offer.” Since then, Mauro has deleted his Twitter account, while Graves has been involved in spats online with Ranallo’s manager Frank Shamrock, along with Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez.
POST Wrestling have reported this morning that Ranallo will not be commentating on tonight’s episode of NXT.
They noted that the announcer has been in communication with WWE since Saturday.
It is not currently known if Ranallo will return for next week’s episode.
