During the interview, he was asked about leaving SmackDown Live as a commentator due to reported bullying issues with JBL. As noted, it appeared that Ranallo was done with WWE after the reported issues, but it was announced earlier this week that Ranallo had signed a new contract with the company to be the new commentator for NXT.
“I was willing to walk away from my dream job, let’s leave it at that. In order for me to do that, I had to be true to my convictions and what makes you a human being.”
Ranallo is known for staying busy, and he is sticking to his reputation as seen with his current projects listed above. “I’ve never been more successful than I am right now.” He brought up dealing with his own health issues, and where he comes from, he is not supposed to be here. “Now I’m calling one of the biggest MMA events of the years, calling the biggest prizefight of the year … and the fact that I’ll soon be getting back into professional wrestling, I wouldn’t trade places with anybody.”
