Showtime releases trailer for Mauro Ranallo documentary


Showtime Sports has revealed the premiere date and released the trailer for their upcoming documentary on Mauro Ranallo.

The film is called "Bipolar Rock ‘N Roller," a reference to a nickname that Ranallo gave himself earlier in his career. It focuses on his time in broadcasting and the mental health challenges that he's dealt with. The documentary will debut on Showtime at 9 p.m. Eastern time on May 25th, which is part of Mental Health Awareness month.

“I have always tried to do my part to bring awareness to mental health issues,” Ranallo said. “Over the last several years, I allowed my best friend, Haris (Usanovic), to film me at my lowest points as well as at my highest. The idea is simply to show others who suffer that they are not alone and that, even when the outlook is bleak, you can overcome and achieve success. Mental illness is a life sentence -- there is no cure -- but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence.”

Ranallo currently does play-by-play for NXT, Showtime Boxing, and Bellator MMA. He joined the NXT announce team last June, which came after a severe bout with mental health issues and him leaving SmackDown amid allegations that he was being bullied.

Dave Meltzer reported last month that Showtime and WWE are both involved in the documentary.
