Mauro Ranallo will not be commentating at NXT Takeover: Chicago II

NXT Takeover: Chicago II will likely follow the pattern of awesome Takeover specials. Every show has been great and the commentary usually enhances the action we see on TV. Unfortunately, one of the best play-by-play announcers in the business will not be there this Saturday night.

Mauro Ranallo announced on Twitter that a scheduling conflict will prevent him from being in Chicago on Saturday night. He will be calling the action for Showtime Boxing as Errol Spence will defend his IBF welterweight title against Carlos Ocampo.

Meanwhile, Vic Joseph will join Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson on commentary for Takeover. Joseph has been doing a great job on the weekly 205 Live TV show and he will have a chance to shine on a bigger stage this Saturday night.

The card for Takeover: Chicago II:

Aleister Black (Champion) vs. Lars Sullivan for the NXT Championship

Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa in a Chicago Street Fight

The Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong) (Champions) vs. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch for the NXT Tag Team Championship

Ricochet vs. Velveteen Dream

Shayna Baszler (Champion) vs. Nikki Cross for the NXT Women’s Championship
