The relationship between WWE and Mauro Ranallo is obviously strained  … and the ex-SmackDown Live announcer took it one step further this weekend by firing a subtle shot.

Ranallo — who is reportedly sitting out the rest of his contract until it expires in August — appeared on commentary for Rizin FF 5: Sakura in Yokohama, Japan and during the intro for the Alpha Female he clearly sounded happy to be announcing elsewhere.

Mauro exclaimed, “Professional wrestler, and boy does it feel good to be able to use that term again, turned mixed martial artist, the Alpha Female Jazzy Gabert!”

Mama mia!
