Taz opens today’s show speaking about last night’s episode of NXT.
He thought the Women’s Battle Royal was very good, and he also really enjoyed the match between Almas and Roderick Strong. He admits that he ‘popped’ from excitement while watching at home when Almas’ valet, Zelina Vega hit Strong with a hurricanrana on the outside of the ring. That spot was completely unexpected, it looked fantastic, and it rightfully garnered a huge reaction from the live audience.
Taz also liked the Undisputed Era coming out at the end of the match and presenting Roderick Strong with an opportunity to join their faction. He really thought it was smart of NXT to send Adam Cole out without a microphone, allowing the camera audio in the ring to pick up Cole’s voice. This made the segment feel more real in his opinion, and he thinks we should see more of this in wrestling.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if he thinks Almas can be the huge hispanic star that WWE appears to be searching for. Taz thinks that Almas definitely can be that guy because he has a great look and his work in the ring speaks for itself. For a long time Taz thought something was missing from Almas’ character, but Zelina Vega appears to have been that missing piece because they are the complete package right now.
