Maura Ranallo Will Be The New Voice Of #WWENXT
Although there were rumors that Mauro Ranallo and WWE were going to part ways in August when his contract expires, it looks like he’ll be the voice of NXT going forward. Ranallo’s personal battles along with the bullying culture of WWE were an immediate bad fit, and coupled with the release of former ring announcer Justin Roberts’ book that put WWE on blast, it looked like Mauro and WWE weren’t meant to be. I’m extremely happy to see that they came to terms, and the NXT atmosphere might be exactly what Mauro needs. He’ll start tonight where NXT is taping at Full Sail for the next four shows or so, and his enthusiastic style is going to mix perfectly with the NXT brand. Mauro was scheduled to call the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor mega fight in August for Showtime Sports, and I have to imagine he’s still in line to do that. Another bonus of working for NXT is the much lighter schedule with it being taped, especially for announcers. Mauro’s debut will most likely be on next Wednesday’s show.
