The Taz Show Recap – Royal Rumble Analysis, Rousey Steals Asuka’s Spotlight, Devaluing NXT Champions, More!
Taz is joined on today’s show by his co-host, Seth.
He thought last night’s Royal Rumble was an “okay” show. At some points the show felt unbalanced and he had issues with the way the show was laid out. He didn’t like seeing the WWE Championship defended in the first match of the night, and he thought this threw off the layout of the show right from the start.
Taz also hated seeing the NXT Champions treated as less than the main roster performers during both Royal Rumble matches. He says that getting the “rub” doesn’t help them in this case; it actually hurts them. He says if Cien Almas and Ember Moon were booked to enter their respective Rumbles, they should have been booked to win.
Ronda Rousey’s appearance at the end of the show was a big surprise to him, but he thought this resulted in the show ending on an anticlimactic note. He thought this surprise appearance took away from Asuka’s win in the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match, and if Rousey was going to appear here, she really should have gotten physical to put a stamp on her arrival.
