TazThe following is the latest blog entry from the official Facebook account of former WWE announcer and soon-to-be TNA star Taz:

Top 7……

1- Chris Pesnikov
Taz, are you suprised with the overwhelming amount of support you’ve received since leaving WWE? I can only imagine it was a tough decision, does it make you feel better knowing you have many fans encouraging you?
Do you plan on doing another RF Shoot interview?

**Actually Chris I am very happily surprised with the support of all of you!! I am also very appreciative for all the feedback from the "Taz Nation" (lol) on this Facebook page! I didn’t know I was this liked….its pretty cool!! I try my best on a daily bases to read just about everything on this facebook page.

**And unfortunately I do not plan on doing any shoot interviews. I know its cool for fans & wrestlers to hear people whom are bitter & angry bury people from inside the biz and people that they have work for but I’m getting too old for that kinda stuff and I am NOT bitter one tiny little bit. On the flip side, I am highly thankful for the awesome ride I was given by Vince McMahon, Kevin Dunn & everyone within the WWE….that might not be "juicy", but thats your shoot.


2- George Coles (Tampa Bay, FL)
Who’s idea was it to use barb wire when you choked out Tajiri?

**That would be Mr.Dangerously


3- Chris Jones (Blue Mountain)
yo man have you ever thought about trying to get in the UFC & do commentary with Rogan & Goldberg? That would be pretty freaking awesome…

**I actually have thought about doing color in the MMA world. Humbly speaking…I feel I would be a good fit with my Judo/grappling experience, being a fan of MMA and my obvious WWE broadcasting background…I be a pretty good hybrid commentary for the MMA realm!


4- Dallas Willard (Australia)
When announcing at ringside what are some of the things that would get passed into your ear piece’s for you and the other commentators to say? Who would pass this info on? And how often were you fed information or ‘things to say’?

**Stuff like…
What would you like to eat after the show? Or, did you leave your car running in the parking lot? Or, what time is your flight tomorrow morning…..that kinda stuff. It was usually Vic McMahon (Vince’s brother). he would feed ALL announcers this info usually ever 10 to 12 seconds of EVERY segment….it was awesome! A little to obvious for my taste…but I applaud the effort.


5-Christian Caputo
What was the worse injury you got besides the broken neck?

**Besides my neck, I would have to say when I tore my bicep of the bone in Baltimore live on Raw vs Perry Saturn….that REALLY was a painful SOB!!! I also made a HUGE mistake but opting not to have surgery on the tear. I did tons of rehab on it to get back able to compete back than….it still hurts!


6-Tom Volpe -What do you think of Jeff Hardy and John Cena?

**Jeff- One of the most unique guys I ever met! He is a quiet but highly passionate pro that is SO F’N talented!! All business.

**Cena- Funny dude who I’m gonna really miss! Always positive, always smiling always trying to top his last performance! John is very respectful of those who came before him in the industry….that means a lot to me. Top notch work ethic.


7- Harkirat Singh Virdi
My question… what do you consider the better night? Winning the ECW Title from Shane Douglas, the sendoff that the locker room gave you at Anarchy Rulz, or the welcome you got at the first One Night Stand?

**My sendoff in ECW. I had no clue Paul and the ECW locker room was going to come out and do what they did…a great experience when your peers do something like that publicly!


In closing-
I was saddened to hear of the unfortunate passing of a true legend in our business…..Misawa. I never had the opportunity to meet this world class competitor & true legend in our business but I was extremely familiar with his work and was ALWAYS impressed with his ability and his credibility he brought to the Pro Wrestling industry. For many years Misawa was the measuring stick in the great country of Japan…my thoughts and prays are with his friends and familiy.
