Mauro Ranallo talks about leaving the WWE
In an interview done by POST Wrestling, Mauro Ranallo talked extensively on the reasons behind him leaving NXT/WWE for the second and final time. The entire interview is a MUST listen, but I will post some quotes & the entire interview below.
“I get it, but that’s not what I want as a commentator. I get the stressful situations, I get the changes on the fly and the system there, but for my mental health, even moving to NXT. When we were live, it was the best experience I could ask for, and that’s a testament to what Triple H and everyone down in NXT have done. I just felt, for my own mental health, even doing the show from home, it was to the point where I would have a panic attack in the morning of the recordings in the last few months.”-Mauro Ranallo on environment & health
"I didn’t like what was happening and who was involved. I didn’t like…all due to respect to all announcers, I believe in chemistry. Maybe I was the problem. On show day, I’m not a great guy to be around because I’m completely focused. I’m prepared and I expect everyone else to be the same. There’s another reason, I’m a play-by-play announcer, and I think I’m one of the best in business, I need to be left alone at times.”-Mauro Ranallo on Chemistry
“It was like my life, it was filled with ups and downs and aberrations. Sometimes when a dream comes true, it doesn’t remain a dream, sometimes you’re not supposed to meet your heroes.”-Mauro on his time in WWE/NXT
