Taz opens today’s show by speaking about Jason Jordan’s performance on this week’s RAW. He has been very critical of the entire Jordan/Angle storyline, and he’s been harping on WWE for not turning Jordan heel over the last couple of months.
However, while watching RAW this past week Taz thought Jordan’s promo work and facial expressions were great. Jordan’s portraying a whiny daddy’s boy right now, but he can still kick you ass in the ring so that makes for an interesting dynamic. Taz also thinks there’s great chemistry between Jordan and Seth Rollins, so he’s interested in seeing where that pairing heads in the future.
Taz was very impressed by Samoa Joe’s promo work on RAW this week. He points out that the inflection and tone of Joe’s words are things that Joe controls on his own, and he’s very good at it. Taz thinks Joe is one of the top guys in the company right now on the mic.
Taz recalls people within TNA years ago arguing over which of their stars would be able to succeed in WWE. There was always concern with A.J. Styles’ Southern accent, as well as Samoa Joe’s body type. As it turns out, none of that stuff matters and both of those competitors have seen great success in WWE thus far.
Taz says he’s very happy for Braun Strowman, but he really felt bad for Rhyno and Heath Slater this past week on RAW. They’re both good guys and he wants to see them succeed, so he hopes WWE eventually comes up with a good angle for them, where they can work with each other and make something positive come out of this pairing.
