WWE is still open to working with Mauro Ranallo, despite his departure that allegedly involved issues with JBL. The idea is for Ranallo to return to the SmackDown booth according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
While Ranallo leaving WWE has raised the issue of bullying or hazing within the company, both sides are said to be on good terms. This could also be since WWE is paying Ranallo’s contract until it expires on August 12. One of the rules is he can’t work televised wrestling events.
Recently, Ranallo returned to commentating boxing.
