The Taz Show Recap – NXT Thoughts, Program with Steve Austin that got Scrapped, What are Taz’s Favourite Suplexes? More!
Blocks 1 & 2:
Taz opens this show by discussing a topic from yesterday’s show, where he was told by a caller that the upcoming House of Horrors match between Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will not be a WWE Championship match. Taz informs that WWE’s initial Instagram post referred to this bout as a Title match, so he’s not sure what has changed since. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if the Title will be on the line or not.
Speaking about last night’s episode of NXT, he said he was unable to watch it intently but from what he could tell Eric Young and Tye Dillinger had a very good match. Young came out prior to the match and sent Sanity to the back. The two men went on to have a brutal match where they both bleed, and Taz thought the colour worked in this instance.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he thinks DIY will spilt up before getting called up to the main roster. Taz doesn’t think that will happen, but he’d prefer it if they got split up and placed on separate brands.
He thought that Bobby Roode’s promo last night was very smart, as he pointed out that Nakamura was unable to defeat him during their feud in NXT. This promo garnered great heat for Roode from the live audience, and Taz points out that sometimes it’s okay for heels to tell the truth because it makes people hate them more.
Hideo Itami returned last night and confronted Bobby Roode. Taz says he feels bad for Itami because he’s consistently getting hurt, and then making a comeback. It’s very difficult to create any momentum when you’re always on the disabled list, and although Taz hates to call Itami ‘injury prone’, it’s hard to deny that Itami has had back luck since he arrived in NXT.
