Legendary Voice Offers Look At Mental Health In Showtime's 'Bipolar Rock N' Roller'

Mauro Ranallo is a legend in the fight game. One of the iconic voices associated with combat sports, I personally got hooked on Mauro as a boxing announcer. As I got back into wrestling a few years back with my son and some close friends, I found Mauro there as well. First as a voice on Smackdown and now with the wildly popular NXT, both WWE brands. 

Through it all, Mauro has become a shining light for mental health, for open discussion and for awareness. This film with Showtime, "Bipolar Rock N' Roller", looks to shed even more light on the struggles of one of this generation's most memorable set of vocal chords and calls. Mamma Mia indeed. 

On a personal note: Mauro's openness and advocacy for conversation and awareness has hit me personally hard. As the son of a special needs teacher, I have first hand experienced the struggles people have openly talking about mental health. And as someone who has his own struggles with mental health, Mauro serves as an inspiration for what we can do with this platform we've been given. I haven't been this excited about a documentary in a long time. 

"Bipolar Rock N' Roller" debuts May 25th.
