WWE announced on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live that Mauro Ranallo was absent from the broadcast because he was sick. They also announced the previous week that he was unable to make the show because of a snow storm. So what exactly is going on with Ranallo?
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter indicated that the reason he has been off WWE television both weeks is because Ranallo suffers from depression. This has been on on-going issue with him dating back to his teenage years and he has been vocal about his condition in past interviews.
Ranallo has sent out his first tweet since March 13th explaining why he hasn’t said anything regarding his situation on social media.
