Backstage News On Why Corey Graves Made The Tweets About Mauro Ranallo Before WWE Survivor Series

Backstage News On Why Corey Graves Made The Tweets About Mauro Ranallo Before WWE Survivor Series
As noted, Corey Graves opened this week's After The Bell podcast by issuing an apology for the tweets he made about Mauro Ranallo's WWE NXT "Takeover: WarGames 2019" commentary.

Those tweets led to Mauro deleting his Twitter account, missing Sunday's Survivor Series pay-per-view, and missing tonight's NXT TV episode.

In an update, Graves reportedly made the tweets about Mauro as a way to play into the brand warfare element of the Survivor Series Weekend, according to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet. Graves reportedly planned to bring the tweets up in a joking manner on Sunday when he was joined by Mauro on commentary. WWE had previously confirmed that Mauro would be calling some of the matches at Survivor Series.

Graves confirmed on his podcast that he made the tweets from his hotel room while watching Takeover on Saturday night. His tweets are still live.

We don't know what happened at the Allstate Arena on Sunday but Mauro did show up, with friend Frank Shamrock, who defended him against Graves on Twitter, and then left before the event began. It was noted on commentary by Michael Cole that Mauro got so excited at Takeover that he blew his voice out, but that he would be back for tonight's NXT TV episode. It's been revealed since then that Mauro will not be working tonight's show. There's no word yet on Mauro's status and return, but he has not re-activated his Twitter account as of this writing.
