Mauro Ranallo is arguably the best in the world at what he does. With NXT, Mauro finally seems content with calling matches in the WWE and that is a win for everybody.
To promote his upcoming documentary, Ranallo sat in for an interview with Cageside Seats.
In this interview, Ranallo revealed that he received an amazing compliment from NXT Superstar Tommaso Ciampa. For those unaware, Ciampa is making huge strides in NXT as the biggest heel in the brand’s history.
Apparently, Ciampa sees Ranallo as the Jim Ross to his Steve Austin. Therefore, he thanked the commentator for helping him get over as a sinister heel.
Tommaso Ciampa, as one of the best heels. It meant a lot to me for him to tell me what JR did for Stone Cold in the ’90s, he feels I’m doing for him now. It doesn’t get any better than that as an announcer.
To receive such a compliment from a wrestler is a testament to the fact that you’ve made it as an announcer. If anyone deserves an honour like this, then it’s Mauro Ranallo.
