He'll be the head announcer for Smackdown.

Best announcer since Jim Ross.

I heard about that signing but I dont know anything about him other than he looks like a tool.

You'll know him when you hear him. He did the last NJPW G1 Climax tourney for AXS with Josh Barnett.

He's also did work for Strikeforce. Frank Shamrock is his agent.

I dont get AXS so I dont know what he sounds like. He cant be as bad as Byron Saxton.

He's very excitable to say the least. Typical wrestlng geek but has decent pipes. He's absolutely better than Saxton.

There's probably some youtube out there of him calling mma, boxing or wrestling. He used to work for The Score in Toronto which was bought up by Sportsnet. Pretty certain you'll dig his call.

Mauro Ranallo used to be a wrestling manager with All-Star Wrestling here in Vancouver waaaay back in the day when he was like 16 yrs old.

Back then they called him Moron Ranerdo  :lol

Maybe he'll replace Michael Cole because that guy is pretty awful.

Mauro is pretty good. Gets right into it but the question is, can he handle having Vince in his ear? He seems to be more of an off the cuff guy so I hope they let him do his thing without trying to produce him. Has to be a dream job for Mauro....good on him.

First show for Mauro is this week. Looking forward to seeing how it goes.

I can't see Lawler fitting into his routine.

Did anyone catch the show? What's the USA consensus on those of you unfamiliar with Mauro?

What do you think?

I watched last night, and so far I like it.  Dude's style brings a lot of excitement and fits in with the style of show Smackdown is.

What do you think?

I've always liked Mauro. Yeah he gets a little excited and pushes his voice but isn't that what wrestling is all about? Besides the guy knows a whole hell of a lot more than guys like Cole.
