WWE News: Rumor Killer On Mauro Ranallo Returning In Place For JBL On Smackdown

It was pretty unfortunate to hear that we will not see JBL calling things down on Smackdown anymore. On Friday Night, the veteran WWE Superstar announced that he intends to go more into his charitable works.

As a result, he would no longer be available for the commentary table on every Tuesday Night. He was part of WWE commentary team for the past few years. The post revealed that JBL would be involved in social works in the upcoming future. He is related to these type of charities from the past decade. Check out some of the excerpts from his tweet, here:

“After much consideration, I will be stepping back my weekly role as Smackdown Announcer to dedicate more continuous time on the work I have done since 2010 with at risk kids and communities. My new schedule will allow me to continue to be a part of the WWE family and also continue my work that I feel is the most important thing in my life.”

WWE did not hesitate to grant the needed time-off by the future Hall of Famer and confirmed his leave on the official website. The company also wished good luck for the longest reigning WWE Champion in Smackdown history.

However, the rumour mill has been running rampant since then with a possible replacement coming up on Tuesday Night in place of the veteran. The name of Mauro Ranallo is the quite obvious choice at this moment. He is a star commentator who recently called down the mega match between Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor.

Plus, he was the original face of the Smackdown team following the brand extension draft. But, he was forced to leave, at one point for JBL bullying him on a regular basis.

So, the enthusiastic fans asked him on the social media whether he is returning in place of JBL on Smackdown Live. One such incident was reported on ringsidenews.com where he addressed the rumours giving a negative answer.

He will stick to his duties on NXT, for now. As per announced by WWE.com, Corey Graves will be the newest addition to Smackdown commentary from tonight onwards.
