He thought it was strange that we didn’t see Emma come to the ring last night with the other four women involved in No Mercy’s Fatal 5-way. He says that WWE wouldn’t have involved Emma in this match if they didn’t want to do something with her moving forward, so Taz is interested to see what they have in mind.
Taz points out that in rare occasions, a certain Superstar is given an opportunity to be the star of a show due to certain circumstances. Last night John Cena couldn’t make RAW, and Lesnar wasn’t live either. It’s too bad that both of those guys weren’t available for the go home show before No Mercy, but their absence allowed The Miz to be the main guy on RAW last night and he delivered.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz about the subtleties of taking bumps as a professional wrestler. Taz says that there’s nothing easy about taking flat back bumps, but all the performers we watch on our televisions each week are trained professionals who make it look very easy.
Taz says he went through a significant adjustment period when he came to WWE from ECW. WWE utilizes 20×20 rings with ropes, which is a far cry from the 18×18 rings with steel cables that he was accustomed to. He also says that professional wrestlers become so accustomed to taking bumps that they don’t even hurt after a period of time, but he admits it’s still tough to take 5 or 6 bumps in a row.
