Blocks 1 & 2:
Taz opens today’s show by sending his prayers and best wishes to Ric Flair and his family right now. Flair is in the hospital with some heart issues, but Taz is sure that Flair will battle through because he’s as tough as they come. He urges all his listeners to pray for Flair today.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz for his opinion on the recent in-ring altercation between Mick Foley and Joey Ryan, where Foley took Ryan’s ‘dick flip’ spot. Taz says that he knows both of these men well, and he respects both of them. This spot is very innovative in Taz’s opinion but it’s not his style, and he probably wouldn’t take that spot if he was still wrestling today.
However, Foley was in a similar spot as Ryan 20 years ago when wrestling purists were criticizing Foley’s hardcore style. Taz is sure that Foley can relate to what Ryan is going through, and Foley’s priority has always been to put smiles on the faces of fans. Foley accomplished that last weekend by taking this spot.
Another listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he ever found out the identity of any WWE employees who were stooging off information to dirt sheets back in the day. Taz says that he never found any solid proof, but there were always certain names floating around backstage that were rumoured to be associated to the dirt sheets.
He says that some of the names would surprise fans, because a couple of these individuals went on to have very successful careers and are still with the company today. When talking to these individuals backstage, Taz was always sure to be very careful with what he was saying.
