Mauro Ranallo Announces New Role with WWE, will Commentate for NXT announced today that Mauro Ranallo will be joining the NXT commentary booth.

Ranallo was the former lead announcer for WWE Smackdown, but earlier this year he took a lengthy medical leave of absence. It was reported that he was dealing with some issues surrounding his mental health, and there is heavy rumor and speculation that it was sparked by comments made by JBL, although neither side has confirmed that this is the case, and Ranallo has even denied it.

Ranallo was believed to be no longer working with WWE going forward, much to the disappointment of fans of his work. Ranallo was highly praised for his work during the Cruiserweight Classic. He has continued to call boxing and MMA matches during his time away from WWE, and is currently slated to call the action for the much-anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Connor McGregor.

Ranallo first made the NXT announcement on his Instagram page.

Triple H followed it up with a tweet of his own.

We will continue to monitor this topic as we get new details.
