Taz opens today’s show by sending congratulations to his friend, A.J. Styles who captured the WWE Title on Smackdown Live last night. He says that Styles is the hardest worker in the business and he hasn’t missed a beat during his nearly 20 year career. He adds that much like calling Eddie Guerrero’s matches, calling a match featuring Styles was a pleasure and a breeze.
He does point out that since the show was filmed overseas, there were plenty of spoilers online regarding the big Title change. WWE even tweeted out a spoiler, saying that a Title had changed hands at the taping. Taz was dissapointed to see that because he was looking forward to watching the match, and he knows a lot of fans were feeling the same way.
He understands that WWE did this because the announcement would certainly motivate fans to watch Smackdown Live to see the Title change, and this would help the ratings. Nonetheless, he doesn’t think it’s a good idea for WWE to be spoiling their own results hours before the show airs because this can anger fans.
