Mauro Ranallo misses the Survivor Series

WWE broadcaster Mauro Ranallo missed Sunday’s Survivor Series show where he was set to call several matches on the show following Saturday’s TakeOver: War Games.

WWE broadcaster Mauro Ranallo missed Sunday’s Survivor Series show where he was set to call several matches on the show following Saturday’s TakeOver: War Games.

On the Survivor Series broadcast, Michael Cole stated that Ranallo had blown out his voice as the reason behind his absence. This appears to have been a cover story after Ranallo was the subject of several critical tweets from colleague Corey Graves.

On Saturday night, Graves issued a pair of tweets apparently taking shots at Ranallo with the following messages:

It is no secret to anyone that Ranallo is bipolar and was the subject of a documentary outlining his struggles and is a constant battle he endures. Hours after the tweets were issued by Graves, Ranallo suspended his Twitter account and was said to have gone home rather than call his matches at the Survivor Series.

On Saturday night’s NXT TakeOver media call, Paul Levesque had stated that Ranallo would be calling matches the next evening as would Nigel McGuinness and Beth Phoenix on behalf of NXT.

POST Wrestling reached out to WWE on Sunday for an update on Ranallo and have not heard a response.

Ranallo’s agent and close friend Frank Shamrock responded to Corey Graves that adds credence to the story that Ranallo was upset with the tweets from Graves.

As of Sunday night, it is expected that Ranallo will be back for this week’s episode of NXT from Full Sail University, which was stated on the Survivor Series broadcast by Cole.
