It appears Mauro Ranallo will not be working WrestleMania 33 this week as he tweeted well wishes to his WWE family as they head to Orlando today.

Mauro wrote the following:


As noted, Mauro missed last night's WrestleMania 33 go-home edition of WWE SmackDown - his third week in a row. Mauro's absence is related to his battle with depression, which he's fought since he was a teenager. Mauro noted last week that his doctors had advised him to stay off social media.

Mauro's good friend and podcast co-host Bas Rutten recently appeared on The Luke Thomas Show and commented on the status of the SmackDown announcer:

"Yeah, he's doing OK. As everybody knows, he's very vocal about it but Mauro is bi-polar and sometimes, a few times a year, things are going too fast and he needs to just simply slow down. But he's doing good and I talked to him... he's sending me funny video clips, he just sent me something... It's all in good spirits, I think he will be back to normal very soon."
