Taz signed a multi-year deal with AEW and he is a voice on Dynamite and AEW Dark. He his having a great time working with Excalibur on AEW Dark and the rest of this talented roster.
While speaking to AEW Unrestricted, Taz discussed how his commentary style differs in AEW from TNA and WWE. Taz has a lot of experience behind the microphone, but All Elite Wrestling isn’t directing him to go a direction he’d rather avoid.
“My commentary work in TNA, some people didn’t like some of it because when I was a heel and I was with this Aces & Eights group they wanted me to be a heel commentator, so I was acting like an asshole on the air and not really getting anyone over except the heels — I hated it. You know you’re getting paid you gotta do your job!”
“In WWE, a lot of my commentary was Ha Ha fun — that’s what the boss wanted.”
“What I’m doing as a commentator in this company, I love because I get to break down the physicality and that’s my dream gig as a color commentator.”
Taz said in all the years he’s been doing color commentary he’s been after a gig like this. He can straight-shoot call a match and announce names of holds and explain the science behind the brutality he sees in the ring.
Taz has a lot of things he can offer in AEW. He is very excited that he’s been afforded the opportunity to put over the competitors in the ring in a way he always wanted to.
