BREAKING: Mauro Ranallo Leaves WWE (UPDATED)

Mauro Ranallo is Leaving WWE
The Wrestling Observer reports that NXT announcer Mauro Ranallo is leaving WWE.

There aren’t many details available right now on what prompted this. Ranallo was not at last week’s NXT and or at TakeOver: XXX. At TakeOver, Corey Graves filled in for in and Wade Barrett filled in for him last Wednesday night. Ranallo reportedly had to fly back to Canada to tend to a family issue.

It’s unclear if this is related, but it was reported earlier today that Wade Barrett is in talks with WWE about a full-time return to the company.

We will pass along more details when we hear more.


Ranallo confirmed the departure on his Facebook page, as seen below. He wrote, "I appreciate the opportunity I had to realize my childhood dream of working in sports entertainment, and I wish WWE well in the future. Now I want to direct my focus and devote my time to my other projects and to my mental health charitable activities and the well-being of my mother and myself."

WWE has also added the following on Twitter:

WWE and Mauro Ranallo have mutually and amicably agreed to part ways. Mauro’s passion and enthusiasm left an indelible and exciting mark with WWE and its fans, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.
