The Taz Show Recap – RAW Analysis, Jason Jordan & Bayley Struggle, Where Were The Hardy Boyz? More!
Taz welcomes Mike Johnson from PWInsider to the show.
Johnson says he has no idea what WWE is doing by putting Enzo Amore in a shark cage for the SummerSlam match between Big Show and Big Cass. Usually that spot is reserved for heels, so this is a reversal of the normal script.
Johnson says the Toronto crowd at RAW last night was brutal, and he was cringing while watching that show. He informs that Bayley’s shoulder injury is legitimate, and it has nothing to do with a creative angle. WWE has been hot and cold with Bayley, and they’ve just started to heat her up again for a big run so it wouldn’t have made much sense to cut her down like this right before SummerSlam.
Johnson mentions that he has been asked a lot why The Hardy Boyz didn’t show up on RAW last night. Johnson was told that it had nothing to do with Dawson’s injury, and Johnson thinks it might have something to do with some of Jeff Hardy’s past legal trouble. Perhaps WWE was concerned that Jeff would have some issues crossing the border.
