Mauro Ranallo Won’t Work NXT, Corey Graves Apologizes

Mauro Ranallo will not work tonight’s live WWE NXT taping from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. He has communicated with WWE but the decision has been made for him not to come to the show this week. Ranallo remains absent from the company following a critical tweet from Corey Graves.

Graves did finally apologize to Ranallo on the latest episode of his After the Bell podcast. A transcription is below:

“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 here on the show. It was maybe not the most professional way to go about things and it was not meant to offend, 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.”
