Is JBL The Reason For Mauro Ranallo’s Absence?


Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer that JBL constantly bashing Mauro Ranallo on air about his pop culture references and activity on Twitter has contributed to Ranallo having to take time away from WWE to deal with his bipolar.

It recently escalated after Mauro tweeted out about receiving the WON Announcer of the Year award which upset JBL who went on to talk about it on the WWE Network show “Bring it to the Table.”

Meltzer also noted that JBL must have said to something to Mauro privately about it. Metlzer added that WWE is in a really tough position with JBL and Ranallo given that they are broadcast partners on SmackDown Live. Meltzer said it would look terrible if Ranallo didn’t return to the company.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
