Mauro Ranallo is not expected to return to WWE for the remainder of his contract. CBS reports that a source “close to the situation” informed them of that news.
As previously noted, it was announced on the March 14th episode of Smackdown Live that his absences were due to the weather in the East Coast. On the following week they announced that an illness was to blame. No other mentions of his absences have been addressed since then on WWE television.
WWE then decided to remove him from their social media lists. Mauro has also deleted several tweets referencing WWE and removed any mention of WWE from his bio section on Twitter.
