Mauro Ranallo has his critics, and I won’t begrudge anyone for not particularly enjoying the frequent pop culture references or overly dramatic flair he tends to add to a broadcast. If that isn’t your cup of tea, that’s fine.
But I defy anyone to watch the above video of Ranallo doing commentary for the recent NXT TakeOver: Phoenix event and not smile while doing so. Seeing anyone be passionate with something they’re doing is a recipe for happiness, and Mauro shows that right here. This isn’t the first video WWE has released like this and I, for one, hope it won’t be the last.
