Taz opens today’s show speaking about last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
Taz thought the final segment of RAW last night was very interesting. After embracing Kurt Angle earlier in the show, Shane McMahon stormed the ring with his Smackdown Live Superstars during the final segment and attacked the entire RAW locker room. Taz points out that this positioned Shane McMahon as a heel, which surprised him.
Taz put up a poll on his website after RAW, asking fans to vote on whether they enjoyed the show or not. To his surprise, over 80% of people liked the final segment. He admits that he liked being shocked by the final segment, but he wishes that Kurt Angle wouldn’t have been presented as a feeble old man one night after suplexing a bunch of people through tables.
A listener calls into the show and says that since returning to WWE Kurt Angle has been going through the most awkward phase of his career. It shouldn’t be awkward and Angle is doing the best with the cards he’s being dealt, but something is just off. Taz agrees and points out that WWE even tried to tell fans that TLC was the first time Angle has been in a ring in 11 years, completely ignoring the work Angle did in TNA and on the indie scene.
