A listener calls into the show and says he’d love to see Brock Lesnar work with Taz in the prime of his career. Taz recalls getting approached by Vince McMahon one evening while he was working as an announcer on Smackdown. Lesnar’s massive push was just ramping up and McMahon asked Taz to do a return match at Madison Square Garden against Lesnar.
Taz says that he had to refuse the offer because he was banged up, and wasn’t capable of doing the things that made him so successful earlier in his career. McMahon pushed back saying they would work around Taz’s injuries and do business the right way, but Taz still couldn’t take that risk. McMahon understood but said that Taz was a terrible businessman saying, “You don’t even know how much I’d pay ya!”
Taz says it wasn’t about the money for him at that point. He couldn’t put himself in physical danger, and he didn’t want to enter the ring as a shell of his former self.
A listener calls into the show and says he’d love to see Goldust have a match against Dean Ambrose because he thinks those two guys could re-create the classic Backlot Brawl between Goldust and Roddy Piper many years ago. Taz says that’s a great idea, and he has been incredible impressed with how Goldust has turned back the clock in terms of his in-ring work lately. Goldust is one of the best workers of the last 25 years in Taz’s opinion, and his longevity is unbelievable.
