Mauro Ranallo NXT Status For This Week, Seth Rollins Announced For WWE Backstage

Mauro Ranallo NXT Status For This Week
- Seth Rollins has been confirmed for this week's WWE Backstage studio show on FS1 at 11pm ET.

There's no word yet on if analyst CM Punk will be appearing this week, but it will be interesting to see as there has been some tension playing out between the two. As noted earlier, actor Stephen Amell has been announced for the "Promo School" segment on this week's Backstage episode.

After missing NXT last week and WWE Survivor Series after SmackDown announcer Corey Graves made two tweets criticizing his commentary, Mauro Ranallo is reportedly returning to NXT TV this Wednesday night.

Ranallo has informed WWE officials that he will be returning to work, according to a new report from Pro Wrestling Sheet. Ranallo is set to call this week's NXT episode with Nigel McGuinness and WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix.

It was originally believed that Mauro would be back last Wednesday, but he missed the show and was said to be in "rough shape" as far as his mental health went. Tom Phillips replaced him last Wednesday.
