A listener writes into the show and points out that on this day in 1998, ECW had its November to Remember PPV where RVD, Sabu & Taz challenged Shane Douglas, Chris Candito and Bam Bam Bigelow. Taz informs that backstage prior to the show’s start all the talents were trying to get the finish from Paul Heyman but Heyman was running around doing a thousand things.
When you’re putting together a wrestling match you start with the finish and work your way backwards so this was a problem for them. Heyman didn’t give them the finish until late in the day and the six men didn’t have much time to plan their match. They decided to say ‘screw it’, went out and got physical, and whatever happened happened.
For the most part the match went well but there were a few spots that didn’t go quite as planned. Taz remembers being furious at the end of the match and when they got in the backstage area they all began arguing with each other, even teammates. The only talent who didn’t argue with anyone was Chris Candito. Taz doesn’t often remember the details of each event, but this match has definitely stuck with him over the years.
Getting into some thoughts on Smackdown Live, Taz thought Corey Graves was leaning too far towards the RAW side during his commentary last night. Taz thinks WWE should have brought a different colour commentator onto Smackdown for a while, at least until after Survivor Series because having Graves on both shows is confusing right now.
