• “Watch my son, he’s 10x the athlete I ever was” – ECW Legend

After a recent debate amongst fans on Social Media, whether Taz could actually still take bumps or could even come out of retirement for ‘one more match’, the Old School ECW Legend himself went to Twitter and commented on the situation.

Here’s what Taz(z) tweeted regarding a potential comeback:

“Not a shot. I’m 55, I retired from the ring a long time ago. It’s a young persons business IMO.

Watch my son, he’s 10x the athlete I ever was & his presence/vibe blows mine away.

Took me 6-7 years to find ‘it’….he IS ‘it’. He’s just getting warmed up…trust me.”

For those who don’t know, Taz’s soon Hook is the current FTW Champion in AEW:

Below is what Taz had to say on whether he could at least take an occasional bump:

“Not unless I’m ok with losing feeling in my legs being that I have nerve damage … so no sir.

Along with needing a knee & shoulder replacement. I live in pain…everyday.

Not complaining, just a fact. I’m use to being in pain.

My wife is use to seeing me in pain. It’s all good tho!”

Taz wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (fka Eastern Championship Wrestling) from 1993 until he left to join the World Wrestling Federation under the slightly different name ‘Tazz’ in late 1999.

In 2002, Tazz retired from active pro wrestling and became a color commentator on WWE TV till 2009, when he joined Dixie Carter’s ‘Total Nonstop Action!’, where he worked till 2015.

Taz is currently working for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling as a Manager.
