Taz opens today’s show discussing Goldberg’s Universal Title victory at Fastlane last night. He says he disagrees entirely with this finish, and he was very vocal last week in his prediction that Kevin Owens would retain his Title against Goldberg. Taz says that Owens is out on the road night after night performing at live events, and he believes the Title should remain on the shoulder of a full-time performer.
In Taz’s opinion, the Universal Title doesn’t make the Goldberg/Lesnar match at WrestleMania any more interesting, and now the Title has become simply a prop on the shoulder of Goldberg. Taz doesn’t mean any disrespect to Goldberg, he just feels that the fairly new Universal Title wasn’t handed correctly last night.
Most fans want to see a Title of that stature defended in a 25-30 minute bout, and it sure looks as if WWE is continuing to protect Goldberg by having him compete in very short matches. Taz is unsure if Goldberg can even bump at this point, because we haven’t seen him on his back since he has returned to the company. Taz believes it’s very strange that WWE is booking things this way, but he admits that maybe they’re saving all of Goldberg’s bumps for a lot of suplexes from Lesnar at WrestleMania.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he found it difficult transitioning into WWE, given the new camera angles and production value that WWE presented. Taz says that cameras were never the issue because the cameras work around the wrestlers, not the other way around. The difficult thing about his transition into WWE was the backstage politics and how things work behind the curtains.
