mauro ranallo

Mauro Ranallo has one of the most recognizable voices in combat sports, so he’s certainly no stranger to MMA, boxing and professional wrestling. Mauro isn’t a fighter himself, but he did recently have a brush with death apparently. The NXT commentator took to social media to encourage fans to learn the Heimlich maneuver and he noted that Frank Shamrock used it to save his life.

Fans then responded to the tweet by showing their support for Mauro, and when he was asked what he was choking on he revealed that he had been eating salmon.

Mauro went on to say that it was the scariest moment of his life, and the only reason he mentioned the situation on Twitter is because he wants other people to know that the Heimlich maneuver does work.

It’s definitely nice to know that Mauro was able to walk away from this unfortunate choking incident thanks to the Heimlich maneuver, and it’s a good thing that Frank Shamrock was in the right place at the right time.
