Jim Ross Doesn’t See Mauro Ranallo Joining AEW: “He Has Issues That Are More Important Than Who’s Doing Dynamite Next Week”

Jim Ross doesn’t see his good friend Mauro Ranallo joining AEW.

Mauro is one of the top combat sports commentators of all time and has commentated mixed martial arts and professional wrestling events. He has worked for WWE in the past, commentating on not just NXT but SmackDown also. Unfortunately, Ranallo would later leave WWE due to harassment from JBL.

During a virtual signing with K & S WrestleFest, Jim Ross was asked if Mauro would be part of the AEW Collision announce team. Jim would note that he doesn’t see Mauro joining AEW anytime soon.

“He’s a friend of mine (J.R. said about Mauro Ranallo)… No (I don’t see him coming to AEW)

“He has mental health issues. He can help any organization, Mauro. Mauro Ranallo is that good. But he’s not a great traveller and that’s not knocking Mauro.

“It’s just he has issues that are more important than who’s doing Dynamite next week.”

Jim Ross

We will have to wait and see if Mauro will return to the professional wrestling industry in some capacity down the line but for now, Jim Ross does not see it happening anytime soon.
