    How does Vince McMahon continue to employ a guy...

    Who completely shuts down and has to miss work because someone trolled him mildly on social media?


    Seems very not like him.
    i like the one that says "some pulp".

    Because he’s one of the best announcers in the business and calls legitimate sports which lends prestige to the WWE whose announcers are mostly terrible. Plus, they knew he had mental health issues when they hired him.

    What is weird about this, is how most sites covering this are 100% pro-Ranallo and making out CG to be some kind of sickening monster. I don't get it. The tweets were light trolling and if Mauro is honestly that sensitive that something so mild sends him into a coma, the guy does not need to be a public figure. Yet, the narrative isn't that at all, it's constantly pro-Mauro with no consideration that at some point, if you're so weak you can't handle even the mildest form of criticism, it's on you.

    This makes me revisit and rethink the whole JBL debacle, because at the time I could see JBL being overly cruel and hard to be around, but if Mauro is really that unstable, I don't think he should be out at all, he probably needs to be committed for his own safety and should absolutely not be a public figure.

    Am I getting this wrong? Graves made a mild tweet that did not name anyone by name, that was a soft criticism of Mauro, right? That's ****ing it, yet for that he's being looked at as if he was some kind of monster just because Mauro locked himself in a closet over it.

    Rightly or wrongly, I think the difference is that Mauro mental health issues have been public knowledge for a while now, and CG was probably unwise to do what he did. As for what he actually said, it does seem pretty tame and had it been aimed at anyone else it wouldn't have been remarked on at all.

    i had the impression it was more like CG made an "in character" type comment or two designed to set up a little back n forth between them on commentary of the SS show because they're on rival brands. But truculent twitter troglodytes being what they are, it got out of hand. So I'm imagining this guy coming home from calling the show, exhausted from putting his heart and soul into it, goes online at some point and there's all this vitriolic negative feedback... that's disheartening for anyone but especially if you have BPD.

    But I'm speculating here to fill in the blanks, it might not be an accurate assessment of the situation.

    also re: JBL didn't Mauro make a statement on his return that his absence was nothing to do with him?

    Too much stuff we don't know about:
    -Is the tweet just the tip of the iceberg and is Mauro actually getting bullied backstage?
    -Was it kayfabe?
    -doesn't bipolar disorder have more to do with current brain chemistry than external factors anyways?

    All I've ever heard about Mauro for years is his multiple mental breakdowns because of bullying backstage. Just sounds like a vagina honestly

    Mauro > Corey commentary

    I wish Mauro would invite his friends in mma to call out graves and have him feel the presence. Graves would curl up into the fetal position like a little bitch which would be funny.

    Mauro is a once-in-a-generation kind of announcer with the capability of becoming the voice of whatever program/sport he's involved in. Graves is good, but he's nowhere near Mauro's level.

    I recommend the Showtime documentary on the guy. He goes from 100% to -1000% real quick. Very sad to see someone go through something like that with no hope of a cure.

    Remember when Michael Cole would announce from that plexiglass box? That was funny

    "To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other."-- Carlos Castaneda
