Taz thought the main event match between A.J. Styles and Randy Orton last night was a great match, and the highlight of Smackdown Live. He assumes that the WrestleMania matchup between Orton and Bray Wyatt will deliver as well.
Taz admits that the tag match between Cena/Bella & Ellsworth/Carmella isn’t really something that he would have booked on the show, but it turned out to be a quick, funny and impactful match and that’s what it should have been. He thought WWE booked this exactly how they should have, and The Miz and Maryse were able to get some heat on Cena and Bella in this segment as well.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz what the key is to a good promo. Taz says a small touch of personal heat often adds significant fuel to the fire when people are cutting promos, and more often than not those turn out to be the best promos. Taz points out that the recent promos between The Miz/Cena and Nikki Bella/Maryse have been terrific, and they have a ‘shoot’ feel to them.
A listener calls into the show and says that he thinks Smackdown Live is going to draft a top NXT talent to challenge Alexa Bliss for her Women’s Title at WrestleMania such as Asuka. Taz says that we should let this storyline develop a little bit further before making that assumption. He admits that Smackdown Live can go a million different ways with this storyline, which is a good thing.
