Mauro Ranallo recently called a mixed martial arts (MMA) event, Rizin FF 5: Sakura, over the weekend in Yokohama, Japan, and took a shot at the WWE while at the commentary desk for the banned term of “Professional wrestler”:
“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!” Mauro said as Gabert approached the cage.
Ranallo is not expected to return to WWE TV and the company has already reportedly entered settlement talks with the SmackDown Live commentator’s representatives. You can watch Ranallo’s shot at the WWE here:
