Ranallo signed with Bellator MMA last week, and he will still be able to call non-pro wrestling events, including Mayweather vs. McGregor. His contract was set to expire in August 2017, and WWE paid it out after his somewhat departure.

It looks like Tom Phillips will leave NXT and continue his role as the lead announcer on SmackDown going forward. Mauro will begin his new gig alongside Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson at Friday's NXT tapings at Full Sail.
