Blocks 1 & 2:
A listener calls into the show and tells Taz says that he considers him to be one of his favourite four wrestlers of all time. The caller says that ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior and Taz are his top four. Taz genuinely thanks the caller, and says that those other three guys are unbelievable company to be in.
Taz comments on Steve Harvey’s recent email to his staff, where he told them to respect his privacy while filming the upcoming fifth season of his talk show. Taz thought this was terrific and jokes that he’s going to send a similar email to all of his staff. He doesn’t have a dressing room like Harvey, but he will find a way to seclude himself from the rest of his staff.
Another listener calls into the show and tells Taz that he gets a lot of heat from his friends and family for being an adult who still watches professional wrestling. Taz urges the callers to ask his friends and family if they enjoy watching television shows or films, because it’s all the same as professional wrestling. It’s simply a form of entertainment, and there are plenty of intelligent adults who watch wrestling on a weekly basis.

Hulk Hogan may not be interested in returning to WWE now that his Gawker problems are behind him.
According to Fightful, WWE had meetings regarding a possible return for The Hulkster, however the decision on whether or not he wants to return to the company is Hogan’s decision. WWE apparently reached out with the proposal of a “renewed working relationship” and Vince McMahon has also touched base with Hogan.
The feeling is that because of Hogan’s $31 Million settlement with Gawker, he’s in a good place financially and doesn’t need the money that WWE is willing to offer him for his return.
