Lead NXT commentator Mauro Ranallo has deleted his Twitter account following some tweets made by SmackDown color commentator Corey Graves during NXT Takeover: WarGames on Saturday night. During Saturday's show Graves alluded to Ranallo not allowing Beth Phoenix or Nigel McGuinness to speak much, tweeting, "Just for the record guys, I know you wouldn't know it, but there's actually a WWE Hall of Famer AND a former Ring of Honor Champion on commentary. When another Twitter user asked Graves how many Chicago rap references Ranallo had made, Graves replied, "Far, far too many." Ranallo, whose lifelong battle with mental illness was documented in the Showtime documentary BIPOLAR ROCK 'N' ROLLER, which you can watch above, deleted his Twitter account shortly after. On Sunday afternoon, Ranallo's close friend and manager, Frank Shamrock, responded to Graves' tweet about Ranallo with a picture stating, "Social media has made too many of you comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the mouth for it." You can view the tweets below: Just for the record guys, I know you wouldn't know it, but there's actually a WWE Hall of Famer AND a former Ring of Honor Champion on commentary. I'd imagine they have a lot to offer.?????#NXTTakeoverWarGames Corey Graves (@WWEGraves) November 24, 2019 We apologize for the inconvenience......but your activity and behavior on this site made us think that you are a bot.
Note: A number of things could be going on here. Mauro Ranallo left Twitter shortly after Corey Graves made a comment about NXT TakeOver: WarGames commentary. Mauro's friend Frank Shamrock might have something to say about this. Shamrock is very close friends with Mauro Ranallo. He responded to Corey Graves' tweet with a threat to punch him in the face.
Shamrock didn't directly say it because he let Ice T do the talking for him as he posted the quote: Social media has made too many of you comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the mouth for it. Shamrock included that little meme along with a hand pointing down to it. Mauro Ranallo has a lot of dangerous friends, so perhaps Corey Graves might want to apologize.
