Taz opens today’s show by commenting on the backlash he received from fans online after yesterday’s show. He was critical of Mauro Ranallo missing this week’s Smackdown Live on yesterday’s show, and he explained how important it is for talents to make it to television tapings.
Taz received several tweets from fans who criticized his comments and made nasty remarks at him without even fully understanding exactly what he said on yesterday’s show. Taz says that yesterday’s comments were not a personal attack at Mauro Ranallo. He gets paid by a major broadcasting corporation to give his opinion and that’s exactly what he did yesterday.
He adds that the response he has received from multiple former play-by-play guys has been terrific, and that’s coming from people who have a history in the business. Taz says that fans need to be smarter than to believe random ‘quotes’ from certain websites online, and he urges people to listen to the full clips from his show in order to fully understand the context of his opinions.
