Taz opens today’s show speaking about last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
Taz was dissapointed to see Stephanie McMahon and Triple H open RAW last night, as he feels we’re seeing too much of the Authority again lately. He does admit that WWE did a couple cool things here by bringing out Braun Strowman and Kurt Angle to get into Triple H’s face. Taz was particularly happy to see this aggressive side to Kurt Angle for the first time since his return.
While Strowman and Angle received huge pops, Jason Jordan’s music was greeted with silence and then boos. Taz still has no idea what WWE is planning for Jordan because they missed their spot to turn him heel at Survivor Series, where he could have cost Team RAW the match. He has transitioned into a whiny, bitchy babyface now and that’ll never work.
Taz liked the first match of the night between Samoa Joe and Finn Balor. He points out that Joe has a big, burly physique which matched well with Finn Balor’s smaller, more agile style. He thinks they have great chemistry, but he believes Joe has even better chemistry with Nakamura.
