Taz opens today’s show speaking about Kevin Owens, and the ‘365’ special that aired on the WWE Network immediately following Survivor Series last Sunday.
He thought the documentary was cool, but he didn’t think it was a perfect piece of filmmaking by any means. He says he likes Owens a lot as a person and as a performer, but this documentary was just basically a recap of his last year on WWE programming. It was nice to see some of the backstage relationships he has with Finn Balor and Sami Zayn, but for the most part it was just a ‘year in review’.
One thing that he really enjoyed about the documentary was the amount of footage we saw of Vince McMahon in the Gorilla Position, interacting with Owens after his matches. Taz says that this type of footage is fairly rare, and we got a nice inside look at the company in those scenes.
Taz points out that McMahon is the last face you see before you go out to work, and the first face you see when you come back through the curtain. Nothing felt better than getting a thumbs up or a smile from McMahon when you walked back through the curtain, but on other nights McMahon would be unhappy with your work and he’d either ignore you altogether or hunt you down to tell you what you did wrong.
