In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Mauro Ranallo spoke about leaving Smackdown Live earlier in the year which many had speculated was due to the bullying & harrassment of his co-worker John "Bradshaw" Layfield. Mauro simply said the following:
“I was willing to walk away from my dream job, let’s leave it at that. In order for me to do that, I had to be true to my convictions and what makes you a human being.”
Mauro also talked about his giant upcoming task when he will call the action in the UFC when Conor McGregor takes on Floyd Mayweather:
“I’ve never been more successful than I am right now. Dealing with my own health issues and where I come from, I’m not supposed to be here. Now I’m calling one of the biggest MMA events of the years, calling the biggest prizefight of the year … and the fact that I’ll soon be getting back into professional wrestling, I wouldn’t trade places with anybody.”
You will see Mauro as the new voice of NXT soon as he made his debut during tonight's tapings.
