– WWF Veteran On Dangerous Title Booking On Raw, Says Asuka Shouldn’t Have Performed The Ankle Lock Prior To Kurt Angle’s Return At TLC 2017
During a recent edition of “The Taz Show” podcast, WWF Veteran Taz discussed the Cruiserweight Title match from TLC 2017, Kurt Angle’s return, Asuka performing the Ankle Lock & more. Below are the highlights:
On Enzo Amore recapturing the WWE Cruiserweight Championship:
“Enzo versus Kalisto, I thought Kalisto would retain. The thing is it’s obvious what they did here, they want to keep the Title on Enzo. He moves the needle more than Kalisto is gonna move it. I think you got to be careful. And I’ve talked about this before, when you put a Title on a guy and you quickly take it off the guy, that’s not good for the guy.
It’s not good for the Title. It’s shotgun booking and I think you got to really be careful with that kind of sh*t. I gotta be honest, I think that’s a little dangerous.”
Taz also had a conversation with a caller on the show and you can check it out below:
Caller: Why would they waste Kurt’s return like that? Should have saved for atleast Royal Rumble or something.
Taz: I think because they were kind of against the wall because of the whole Roman Reigns thing. I don’t think it was bad booking of putting him in the match as a draw to make a blase-predictable-finish-pay-per-view kinda, to spark that and to spike that and they did that by putting Kurt in that. You can’t argue that.
Caller: I think they kinda had to but they could have put Matt Hardy or something.
Taz: But it wouldn’t have been as big as Kurt. We got to see Kurt do some of the Suplex and stuff like that. And we got the see Kurt do a couple Angle Slams. And we got to see Kurt do Asuka’s Ankle Lock. (SARCASTICALLY SPEAKING)
And I know Asuka has done that many times. Please people, don’t tell me that. I know that. You have to kind of tell her or whoever else – Hey, Kurt’s on the show and it’s very rare and we’re making a big deal. The first time we see the Ankle Lock tonight it should be done by f***ing Kurt. It’s that simple.

– Bobby Lashley Comments On Where He Wants To Face Brock Lesnar – Cage Or Ring?
During a recent interview with RealSport, former WWE Superstar and MMA Fighter Bobby Lashley talked about wanting to face/fight current WWE Universal Champion & former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar.
When asked where would he want to face Lesnar – in the Cage or in the Ring, below is what Lashley said:
“Whichever one pays more. I really don’t care. At the end of the day, we’ve gotta feed our kids, and right now I think either one will do it. It’s one of those things where UFC, with the Floyd Mayweather thing, I know it’s not gonna be as big as that, but Mayweather and Conor McGregor came up there and they actually crossed.
It was like, Dana White shook hands with Floyd Mayweather in a different promotion and made something magical. I think at the end of the day, these people are gonna understand the same thing.”
