Mauro Ranallo Will Miss This Week’s NXT, Corey Graves Offers Apology

Mauro Ranallo did not work Survivor Series last week which he was scheduled to. This was due to Corey Graves criticizing Mauro’s NXT TakeOver: WarGames’ commentary in a tweet. Now it seems he will not appear on this week’s NXT.

According to a report by John Pollock of Post Wrestling, Mauro Ranallo will miss this week’s episode of NXT. This was also confirmed by PWInsider.

During his After The Bell podcast, Corey Graves addressed this issue in the beginning. He provided a detailed explanation and an apology for his words. Here is what he said:

“Before we go any further, on a personal note I need to address something. This past Saturday during the TakeOver: WarGames event, I sent out a tweet. It was an unpopular opinion, as I often do, with the intention of just stirring up a little controversy, maybe have something fun to talk about on TV or maybe here on the show. It was maybe not the most professional way to go about things and it was never meant to offend or disrespect or disparage anybody. That was never my intention. If it was taken as such, I apologize deeply. That was not my intention. I would never intentionally cause anybody any undue stress, especially a co-worker, so, I apologize.”

It is unknown whether Ranallo will make his return to NXT commentary next week. Hopefully Graves also personally reached out to Ranallo after this.
