According to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, NXT commentator Mauro Ranallo and WWE are parting ways.
The 50-year old Canadian broadcaster signed with WWE in 2016 to be SmackDown’s lead commentator before transitioning to being a mainstay in NXT in the Summer of 2017.
Ranallo was replaced by the returning Wade Barrett on last week’s show as will be the case for tomorrow night’s special-edition of ‘NXT: Super Tuesday’.
It’s also been reported that WWE has been in negotiations with the aforementioned Barrett for a permanent role with NXT’s commentating team which currently featured Vic Joseph and WWE Hall of Famer, Beth Phoenix.
WWE and Ranallo have yet to comment on the report.
