A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he had any dealings with Joe Malenko (Dean’s brother). Taz says he met both Joe and Dean in Japan and Joe was a tremendous worker – right up there with his brother in terms of in-ring efficiency. Taz doesn’t believe that Joe was fond of the hectic travel demands that comes with a career in the professional wrestling business, and that’s why he decided to ease out of the business while Dean went on to have a very successful mainstream career.
The caller also asks Taz if he thinks chain wrestling is dead, and Taz says it certainly is not. If you want to watch chain wrestling in 2017 all you need to do is turn on an episode of 205 Live on Tuesday night.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he thinks the cruiserweights could possibly move from RAW to Smackdown Live. Taz thinks that move would make a lot of sense creatively, and he’d rather they move the entire cruiserweight division to Smackdown instead of 2 or 3 particular Superstars.
Taz says that Paul Heyman sent out a steady diet of tweets last night, hinting at the fact that Brock Lesnar might be on his way to Smackdown Live. Taz believes that this was a ‘red herring’ by Heyman, who is teasing this move just to create speculation and stir the pot. Taz says that Heyman is the master of this type of move, and he can’t see Lesnar moving at this point since he just became Universal Champion.
