Taz opens today’s show speaking about last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
He says it was great to see Kane return to WWE programming last night. He was shocked to see Kane crawl through the ring mat to interfere in the main event match, especially when he thought that Samoa Joe would be the fifth member of ‘Team Miz’ at TLC match. Nonetheless, Kane will add intrigue to this match and he concludes by saying that Glenn Jacobs is a ‘quality guy’.
Taz wishes that WWE would stop normalizing Braun Strowman. If Strowman is supposed to be the ‘Monster Amongst Men’, he should never be in the ring cutting a standard promo with three or four other talents. Taz says that maybe he’s old school, but seeing Strowman standing there with a mic just feels very odd, and it goes against everything else that WWE is telling us about this character.
He goes on to say that The Shield vs. Team Miz at TLC is singularly about getting The Shield over. It’s now a 3 vs. 5 match and Taz has no idea how they’re gonna book this match effectively, but he’s still sure that The Shield will find a way to beat the odds and emerge victorious. Complicating matters is the fact that WWE creative now has to find a way to creatively beat Team Miz while protecting two monsters (Kane and Strowman).
