There’s no way this can sound good. Mauro Ranallo has officially left WWE though his contract doesn’t expire until the middle of August. With him off TV now though, details are starting to come out about his rather horrible exit and how everything went so wrong behind the scenes.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter by way of Wrestlinginc.com, WWE’s issues with Ranallo have been going on for a while now. Apparently Vince McMahon wanted Ranallo to be more like Michael Cole and brought in Tom Phillips to help balance things out. Things continued to go badly so the company started making fun of Ranallo because “the production room was filled with a lot of people who were emotionally still in high school.” The final straw was JBL ripping into Ranallo on “Bring it to the Table”, which was planned in advance and designed to bury Ranallo.

Opinion: If this is the case, WWE is actually coming off worse in this than I thought they were in the first place. The fact that Ranallo was ostracized for not being one of the boys and having his own voice shows you how horrible a place it must be backstage at WWE. Ranallo was brought in for sounding different and then was told that was horrible so he was mocked for it. That’s pathetic and makes WWE look horrible.
