The comment on Twitter by Corey Graves this past weekend that resulted in Mauro Ranallo deleting his Twitter and missing Survivor Series has also now lead to him missing tonight’s NXT.
You can read all about Graves tweet here, but basically, Graves said that Ranallo wasn’t allowing Beth Phoenix and Nigel McGuinness to speak on commentary during NXT TakeOver: War Games. Ranallo who suffers from bipolar disorder took this comment badly.
WWE covered for Ranallo missing Survivor Series by claiming Ranallo had strained his voice the night before at the TakeOver event. Ranallo had been due to commentate on some portions of Survivor Series with Graves.
At the moment Ranallo’s future is unknown, but Tom Phillips is expected to fill in tonight.
Ranallo has left WWE previously by mutual consent after being bullied by JBL, although he did say publicly at the time it had nothing to do with JBL.
