Who knows with Tazz, we may very well see him head to TNA if he doesnt get the deal he wants. Hell drop that West guy and have Tazz replace the guy, then again get rid of Mike Tenay also. Tazz as the manager of Samoa Joe? That could work also or even if he was Joe's tag partner (if he could wrestle). Whatever way it looks if WWE dont get Tazz to sign expect him to make the jump to TNA.

Quote Tazz confirms in his latest ECW.com column that his contract expires in March. He shoots down rumors that he has asked for a raise though, saying WWE has yet to approach him about signing a new deal. This is one of those deals where you're still under contract so you can't bad-mouth the company but he has definitely told friends he wants a raise.
 
Not sure how much of this is a shoot and how much is true. Yes he isn't going to go around being stupid and slagging off his employer. But i would think that if he says he's not asked for a raise then he is telling the truth. If he had WWE would want it in his shoot because "i have asked them for more money" would look bad on his part to some fans, and earn WWE browny points for honesty. Surprised he's not yet been offered anything though. Last thing Vince will want is him shooting his mouth off in TNA as he is very good at doing. He would be a perfect chance to get rid of Don West though.

Thats probably why Tazz didnt say he asked for a raise in his supposed "shoot", cos it would look bad to his fans if he did so. WWE will sign him up I believe as Tazz is needed down in ECW, if not, im sure he'd be awesome in TNA, imagine a ECW Invasion of TNA? That would work wonders.

How can you like a Color commentator if you dont like there voice and cant hear them[IMG]http://www.theunprettier.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif" height="17" width="17" align="absmiddle" alt="LOL" />
Raven likes JBL as a commentator, as long as he/she doesn't have to hear his comments. I like him as a wrestler as long as I don't have to see him wrestle.


Read it again! Raven says "He's voice annoys him and that he watches it on mute" So how can you like a commenator if you cant stand or hear him?


The same way I can like a wrestler as long as I don't have to watch him wrestle.
Okay students our word for the day is SARCASM.

Quote In the latest edition of "Shootin' with Tazz", Tazz gets really fired up and blasts the internet. Tazz found out about the internet report that said that his contract was going to expire soon and that he wanted a raise. Tazz laughs at the report because he claimed that he hasn't asked for anything because WWE hasn't even approached him about an extension yet. He also compares himself to JBL because a similar thing happened to him a few months ago when his contract was expiring. Just like JBL, he blasts the internet, not to mention the person(s) who leaked information regarding his contract. Tazz's WWE contract expires in March.

 

For a start if something is not true then why get worked up about it ? Why should Tazz care so much what an outsider as said as it's nto a family member, friend or anyone else important. Maybe he is annoyed at the fact that he is rated so lowly by WWE that he's not been offered a new contract yet. This "new direction" that WWE is going with the brand might be to get rid of another original. Be bad for Tazz if he misses Wrestlemania by one month if his contract runs out. JBL was a different situation altogether as he's been with WWE for a lot longer and is known to hate ECW and never been part of it.

Rumours have hit WWE may not sign Tazz back up and end up releasing him thus why Brad Armstrong was given the go on the announcers booth, just incase if WWE decide not to sign up Tazz or if Tazz decides to leave.

Quote The deal with Brad Armstrong appearing at the commentators' table at the 12/19 ECW show was a tryout for the color commentator spot should Tazz not re-sign with the company. Furthermore, it was also something of Vince McMahon trying to stir things up to get to Tazz. The company probably didn't like the idea of Tazz playing up offers from Sirius and an FM station in New York. Tazz knew what was going on and he decided to cut Armstrong off from the minute he got there.

I thought the thinking behind it was a dig to BG James by having his reletive on the show. Armstrong was not on the announce team long enough to make an impression as to if he would be good at replacing Tazz. I am loving this little game of cat and mouse between Tazz and Vince. You cannot blame Tazz for playing up offers, or Vince for getting a measure of revenge to show Tazz who is in control. Tazz cutting him off all the time might not be such a good thing though. If he left he wouldn't be able to use the Taz/z name/s anyway, as Vince will have them both under copyright.

I reckon if Tazz and WWE dont come to deals, Tazz will most likely retire from the business. He cant wrestle and basically announcing on an indy show wouldnt be that good of a job either, so who knows i reckon Tazz may retire.

Quote The WWE contracts of AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson will expire early next year. According to sources, all four stars signed three-year deals with the company when they came on board in 2016. Styles and Nakamura’s deals will expire in January, while Anderson and Gallows’ contracts will expire a short time later. They had their last match with NJPW in February of 2016, with Anderson having confirmed he was WWE-bound that month.

NJPW reportedly has “absolute interest” in bringing Nakamura back, as Nakamura’s name value is much higher since he debuted with WWE. Styles said in March that he would be interested in re-signing with WWE when his contract is up, saying, “I don’t see why not if I can do what I do. Like, if I can still be AJ Styles, then I would like to keep working in the WWE in a talent form. So as long as I can keep going, then I would like to keep working there.”

Styles will sign back up again. He would be stupid not to after the best three years of his career.
 
Gallows/Anderson never have anything done with them, so might want to go back to Japan. Especially Anderson with his wife and her side of the family being from there.
 
Nakamura could well end up back in Japan too. He would be on way more money than before he left and back in more relaxing surroundings, for someone still struggling with picking up English.

Nakamura has increased his value by being in WWE, he hasn’t reached the dizzy heights some expected him to in the E although he’s maintained a fairly consistent main event spot so it could have been so much worse. If NJPW offer him enough money and a easier schedule I could see him returning.

Gallows and Anderson are jobbers in WWE, again enough money, scheduling and the promise of more prominent booking could lure them back. They’ve been jobbed out in WWE for so long now it’s hard to them seriously as anything more than that.

AJ Styles I think will finish his career in WWE. He’s excelled there achieving way more than most expected, he’s a established main event talent and a draw as well as a sure fire hall of famer. WWE think highly enough of him to put him in matches with all the top stars at major shows, he’d be crazy to leave.
