As some fans may have notices, Maura Ranallo has been ascent from Smackdown Live announcing for the past couple of weeks. This week WWE claimed that Ranallo was sick and was unable to make the show, while the prior week snow had kept him away.
Based on reports, the real reason Ranallo has missed these shows is because he suffers from depression. Mauro Ranallo has suffered from depression dating back to his teenage years and been vocal about his condition through social media and interviews.
Two closest friends of Ranallo have confirmed these reports and indicate that he’s doing fine and resting. This is not the first time Ranallo has missed events due to his depression. He has missed an Invicta MMA show for the same reason a few years back.
