Update on the situation between Mauro Ranallo and Corey Graves

Mauro Ranallo did not call Sunday’s WWE’s Survivor Series pay-per-view as originally scheduled after a series of tweets made by SmackDown color commentator Corey Graves.

Ranallo deleted his Twitter account after Graves stated that the NXT lead announcer didn’t allow fellow commentators Beth Phoenix or Nigel McGuinness to talk enough during the TakeOver: WarGames III broadcast. 

Graves also responded to a person on Twitter where he noted that Ranallo made “Far, far too many” Chicago rap references.

Dave Meltzer noted in the Daily Update on F4Wonline that Ranallo’s mental health issues are well-known and pointed out that while announcers are fair game from fans under any circumstances, it’s an unfortunate situation as the other announcers should be aware of the issues that led to Ranallo departing as the lead announcer of SmackDown a few years ago. 

Although Triple H stated that Ranallo would be on the Survivor Series broadcast, he wasn’t and WWE gave the reason that he blew his voice out the night before. 

Meltzer also noted on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that Ranallo has not quit WWE. In fact, it was said that everything is fine between Ranallo and WWE as the belief is that Ranallo will be back on commentary this Wednesday for NXT.

Meltzer added that WWE officials weren’t happy with Graves over his tweets but he did call some matches on the broadcast.
