JBL has received a lot of bad press as a result of the situation with Mauro Ranallo. The WWE Universe’s opinion on him has definitely changed. A lot of people are asking or even telling the powers that be to fire him now that several former WWE talents have come forward.
In all likelihood, it seems that Mauro Ranallo’s WWE career is over. The WWE Universe has shown great support for him, and WWE officials are working out a deal to stop the backlash against the company and JBL. The belief is that JBL won’t be punished for his behavior.
However, that doesn’t mean WWE officials intend to do nothing to improve his image with the WWE Universe. It has been reported by CageSideSeats that JBL will be undergoing character changes at the announce desk. Going forward, he will start working a babyface role on SmackDown.
Bradshaw has been a good heel commentator, but he will need to ease up on commentary for the foreseeable future until all the bad press is forgotten. Over time, the WWE Universe should forgive him if the “bullying” stops immediately. The question is how long it will take?
