Taz opens today’s show by diving right into his analysis of last night’s TLC PPV. He says that he wasn’t overly fond of his show, even though all the talents worked hard.
He says he would have preferred if Kurt Angle would have respectfully denied the vest when Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose offered it to him. Taz would have liked if Angle would have said something like, “Thanks, but I think I’ll wear this on my chest instead”, as he pulled out his gold medals. Taz thinks a huge part of Angle’s return is seeing Angle in all his glory, with his own theme music and wearing his singlet.
Taz thought that Elias and Jason Jordan were put in a rough spot last night, working in between Styles/Balor and the TLC main event. He thought Elias’ initial segment was repeated later in the show because McMahon was so mad at how bad it was the first time. After watching it unfold exactly the same the second time around Taz realized that his opinion was wrong in that case.
He also believes that the finish to the Elias/Jordan match was botched. He says that while WWE sometimes books controversial finishes, this finish didn’t look that way to him. If it was supposed to be a controversial finish, Elias kicked out way too early prior to the 3-count.
