He points out that including a full match was a necessity for him, and when he ran his finishing school several years ago he’d always request tape of a full match from talents before accepting them into the school.

Taz didn’t like that Smackdown teased a RAW invasion all night long, but then failed to pay off that story at the end of the show. He points out that WWE was up against Game 1 of the World Series last night, so he felt like they should have done something to keep the viewers attached to WWE programming.

They can execute a brand split and pretend that both shows are equal but when it comes to major storylines or stars, they always show up on RAW.
