• Jim Ross Says Wrestlers Thought Taz Was An Unsafe Worker In WWF, Taz Fires Back
WWE Hall Of Famer & current AEW commentator Jim Ross discussed Vince McMahon ending Taz’s push in the WWF on a recent edition of his Grilling JR podcast.
JR said that many wrestlers complained to the Chairman that Taz was unsafe to work with, which is why his push ended.
“People thought his suplexes were dangerous, all this other stuff. A lot of the talents get back to Vince and say, ‘You know, I don’t really want to work with this guy. He’s dangerous.’
So they’d tell me that, but they’d tell Vince that. [Vince McMahon] heard it enough and he saw that a lot of top talents were uncomfortable in stepping in the ring with Taz. He finally took it to heart.”
Taz then took to Twitter to react to Ross’ claim, and asked him if there was a list of wrestlers he injured. He stated that he actually injured zero wrestlers.
“Sure it’s not Superstar & couple his buddies? Lol, I’ve talked about this “Taz is dangerous” thing on my show many times for years. Those who heard it know the truth. So @JRsBBQ was there list of names of guys in WWE I “injured” via a Suplex? Was it 7 men, 3 or even 1? #zero”
