Taz comments on the news from yesterday, when The Rock said he wouldn’t count out a run for the Presidency at some point in the future. Taz thinks it’d be awesome if The Rock ran for the Presidency. He says that The Rock is a huge star who is almost universally liked by everyone. He’s also a very intelligent man, who Taz would support if he announced his candidacy.
Taz says that while it’s no secret that The Rock is one of the most gifted talkers in the history of professional wrestling, he was no slouch in the ring either. Rock is a big, strong guy who could really work in the ring, and Taz has the upmost respect for him.
A listener calls into the show and asks Taz if WWE performers have any form of insurance through the company, or if you need to have your own insurance policies. Taz says that WWE performers are independent contractors, and this means that you’re responsible for your own insurance policies.
However, if you get injured working for WWE, Vince McMahon and the company always takes care of you. If your kids or spouse needs a medical procedure, the company will not cover that. He says that some former employees take shots at the company for their policies in this regard, but Taz will never do that. From his experience, Vince McMahon does whatever he can to take care of his employees.
