Blocks 1 & 2:
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he enjoyed the Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels match at WrestleMania 24. Taz didn’t call that match, and although he was trying to pay attention to it as much as possible, he was also prepping for his next match while that match was happening. He says it’s tough to really absorb a great match like that when you’re trying to get ready for your next segment.
Another listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he thinks Sunday’s match against Roman Reigns will be The Undertaker’s last match. Taz says the more he thinks about it he’s starting to believe that this will be Undertaker’s final match. Undertaker’s body is beat up, and he and the company have made a lot of money together over the years. Taz thinks The Undertaker will pass the torch on Sunday and ride off into the sunset.
Another caller asks Taz if he thinks Goldberg should have taken a page out of Shawn Michaels’ book, and refused to make a WWE comeback at this point in the year. In Taz’s opinion, Goldberg did the right thing by making a comeback. He says that Goldberg and Michaels were different workers during the prime of their careers, and Michaels took a lot more bumps which takes a toll on your body.
Goldberg’s gimmick was terrific and this is not discrediting Goldberg at all, it’s just a simple fact that Goldberg worked a different style than Michaels. For this reason, Goldberg can come back in his 50s and work the same way he did when he was 30. Michaels on the other hand, might find it more difficult trying to replicate the in-ring style that made him one of the greatest of all time during his prime.
