Taz Joins AEW

The news of Taz signing with All Elite Wrestling comes just one day after it was announced WarnerMedia and AEW have entered into a new 4-year agreement that will see AEW Dynamite remain on TNT through the end of 2023 and the creation of a new weekly show.

Prior to signing joining AEW, Taz received strong reviews for his work calling several AEW broadcasts. Taz debuted for AEW as a guest commentator on the third episode of AEW Dark back in October. He called the New Year’s Day episode of AEW Dynamite (filling in for Tony Schiavone)and calledWednesday’s AEW Dark from Miami along with Excalibur.

As a result of him joining AEW, Taz stated on Twitter that his popular Taz Show podcast has been put on ‘hold’ for ‘quite some time.’

  1. What can Taz add anymore? He sucked when he was at TNA. Grow your own homegrown voices AEW. I guess that explains why he left his CBS Sports radio gig.

  2. With another show in the works, it’s not a bad signing. Probably gives that show some broadcast stability that the folks at Turner feel comfortable with.

  3. Great move as long as they remove Excalibur and his stupid ass mask. JR and Taz commentating, Tony doing the interviews and Excalibur setting up and taking down the ring, off camera so we never have to see or hear from him again.

  4. Taz is a solid color man, but they really need to drop some broadcasters. It’s really a waste of money at this stage to multiple broadcast teams for different shows.

  5. You must have been ignoring and not paying attention to all the positive feedback he’s been getting doing commentary on AEW lately.
