Taz opens today’s show by informing that this is episode 499 of The Taz Show. He will be having a special 500th episode special this coming Friday and his special guest will be Chris Jericho.
Taz says points out that Roman Reigns’ Intercontinental Title run got off to a hot start last night, after Michael Cole informed that a picture of Reigns and his Title received nearly 600,000 likes on Instagram this past week. This made Taz think about just how popular Reigns is, and there’s no denying that he’s a major star at this point in his career.
He goes on to say that Reigns checks all the boxes for WWE right now, and that’s why the company continues to invest money in him. Reigns is over with the audience, whether they cheer him or boo him, and he makes the company money, so he’s the real deal when it comes to WWE Superstars right now.
Taz likes Elias a lot as an entertainer, and he points out that Elias’ mini-concert last night was longer than most of his segments. When Elias and Reigns finally started their match, Taz thought they had a great, competitive bout. However, one thing that stood out to Taz during this match has become an issue for WWE as of late.
