NXT commentator Mauro Ranallo was missing from Survivor Series tonight and the reason for his absence was explained during the broadcast.
Before the NXT Championship match featuring Adam Cole and Pete Dunne, Michael Cole announced Ranallo wasn’t present at Survivor Series because he blew his voice out on commentary the night before at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
During the WarGames media call, Triple H explained that members of the NXT commentary team would likely be present during matches involving the black and yellow brand – including Mauro.
Beth Phoenix and Nigel McGuinness were still present for NXT matches and Cole replaced Ranallo for play-by-play commentary during the NXT Championship match.
FYI – It’s worth noting that Mauro deleted his Twitter account sometime after WarGames.
