Mauro Ranallo: Bio
If there’s a fight to be called, Mauro Ranallo is calling it.
Apart from his prolific voice-artist career in commercials, books and film, Ranallo has lent his insights and talents to the commentary teams of sports-entertainment and mixed martial arts for the entirety of his professional career, becoming the only man to call every major combat sport on national television. Boxing? Yep, he called the international feed of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao in 2015. Mixed martial arts? Former lead announcer for Strikeforce. Wrestling? One of the first commentators to help launch New Japan Pro Wrestling stateside.
And WWE? In 2016, he fulfilled a longstanding dream to lend his talents to sports-entertainment’s highest-profile destination – first with SmackDown LIVE, then the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic and, now, on NXT.
“I am thrilled to announce I will now be part of the NXT broadcasting team,” Ranallo said upon breaking the news.
The feeling is mutual.
