Mauro Ranallo Update; Backstage Perception of Corey Graves After Incident

— The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Mauro Ranallo had made it clear to WWE officials lately that “he was not doing well” but it’s possible Corey Graves was not aware of that before he tweeted criticism aimed at Ranallo last weekend. Graves’ reasoning that he was doing it start an angle has been met with some skepticism backstage as people have noted that if it was to lead to an angle, Graves wouldn’t have tweeted like that and also would have buried all three commentators, not just Ranallo. Ranallo and Graves were scheduled to announce at least one match together at Survivor Series.

— The Observer adds that while logic would seem to suggest that WWE management would “reel in” Graves after Ranallo left, many people backstage felt that Graves was considered to be the “babyface” and possibly even the “victim” in the incident. Social Media Interaction
