On the latest episode of his Maurologue podcast famed play-by-play commentator Mauro Ranallo spoke about his experience working on last Sunday’s IMPACT Rebellion pay per view, where the Bipolar Rock ‘N’ Rolla joined D-Lo Brown and Matt Striker to call the main event showdown between Kenny Omega and Rich Swann. Hear Ranallo’s thoughts on the show below.
On working with D-Lo and Striker:
“I’ve got to tell you, I had a blast working with D-Lo Brown and Matt Striker and what a match between AEW Champion Kenny Omega and Unified IMPACT belt-holder Rich Swann in a title-for-title mega main event.”
How IMPACT reignited his passion for pro-wrestling:
“A big thank you to Scott D’Amore and all the people at IMPACT Wrestling for making me feel so welcome. It reminded me of, honestly, when I started my career at 16. Yeah, last night reignited my passion for professional wrestling. Very chill, relaxed atmosphere – a lot of support, a lot of respect, and a lot of hungry and determined roster comprising some decorated vets and some very talented up-and-comers.”
Says everyone had their working boots on and touts their PPV buy numbers:
“Man, they had their working boots on last night. I thought everyone delivered and from what I understand, the pay-per-view is getting rave reviews, and even more importantly, the pay-per-view buyrate should be one of the best that IMPACT Wrestling has done in some time. Yeah, it was great to see so many familiar faces and I do hope to get to do it again.”
