Taz opens today’s show speaking about last night’s episode of Smackdown Live.
After RAW was invaded by Smackdown the night before, Taz thought it was strange to see Michael Cole replacing Tom Phillips as the lead commentator again. He thought someone from Smackdown’s roster or even Shane McMahon should have gotten in Cole’s face and threatened him to call the action right or there would be hell to pay.
A listener calls into the show and says that he thought the interaction between Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan in the backstage area was not believable at all. Taz agrees and says that was terrible acting by both men, but he liked that there was a hook at the end of it to bring viewers back to the show next week.
Taz wonders if it’s easier to make it as a wrestler in the business today compared to years ago. He says that social media has helped in a huge way because performers can now market themselves on social media. When Taz was trying to make it as a professional wrestler he was sending out VHS tapes. On each tape he’d include a sizzle reel and one full match.
