Mauro Ranallo Confirms WWE Departure

Mauro Ranallo has confirmed that he and WWE have parted ways.

In a statement given to Newsweek, the now-former Smackdown Live announcer also made a point to clarify that his departure was nothing to do with fellow announcer John “Bradshaw” Layfield.

“WWE and I have mutually agreed to part ways. It has nothing to do with JBL.”

Newsweek reached out to WWE for a comment, and they responded by confirming Ranallo’s departure and that his contract would run until August 12.

Layfield also gave a statement to Newsweek;

“Admittedly, I took part in locker room pranks that existed within the industry years ago. WWE addressed my behavior and I responded accordingly, yet my past is being brought up because of recent unfounded rumors. I apologize if anything I said playing ‘the bad guy’ on a TV show was misconstrued.”

Ranallo signed for WWE in 2015, with his high point among many fans being his work with Daniel Bryan during the Cruiserweight Classic series on the WWE Network.
