• Booker T Comments On Mauro Ranallo’s Situation With WWE
During a recent edition of his Hall Of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T had the following to say about Mauro Ranallo situation with WWE (tap here if you don’t know the details):
“People don’t understand the power of those characters and photos.
You can’t be just saying anything in 2019 and expect for it to be swept under the rug. I really don’t know what happened. I know Corey Graves put out an apology to Mauro.
I don’t know what really sparked it or what is really going on behind the scenes. I’ll be at the pay-per-view in three weeks and I’ll be like Peter Parker.
Mauro Ranallo, get yourself together. Big ups to everything you do because I know how hard you work. The angle thing, back in the day, I hated getting ribbed.
If they ribbed me, no one would tell me whoever did it. I would always say, ‘You can rib me if you want, but if I find out who did it, you’re gonna be in a fight. Just letting you know.’ Don’t play with me like that, because I’m not to be played with.
Shoutout to Mauro, get yourself together, get back on the horse. Get your a$$ back to work, bro. Don’t let somebody stop you from doing what you do. That’s just word.”
