It was recently revealed that Mauro Ranallo had re-signed with WWE, as he’s now going to be a part of the NXT commentary team. The news came just a few months after Ranallo left the company due to personal reasons.
Shortly after news of his re-signing broke, Mauro had this to say about his return to WWE.
“THE NXT CHAPTER BEGINS! WWE and I mutually agreed to end my responsibilities on SmackDown having nothing to do with rumors about disputes. As I remained under contract with WWE, we discussed a variety of options. Despite originally agreeing to part ways, there was always a desire to continue working together. We have come to terms on a new agreement that benefits both WWE and me, and I am thrilled to announce I will now be part of the NXT broadcasting team.”
According to Cageside Seats, the new NXT play by play man signed a two year deal with WWE. So, it looks like he’ll be a part of the company’s developmental brand until mid-2019.
