According to WrestlingInc, on Chris Jericho’s podcast, “Talk Is Jericho”, professional wrestler and former WWE Commentator Taz expressed his opinions regarding the problem with the current WWE commentary team, adding that there is an absence of commentators with high-level ring experience.  He further added that he respects Graves and Saxton, but there needs to be someone with world champion-level experience which is why he liked it when WWE Hall of Famer Booker T was calling RAW.

“The first thing, if you are a color commentator, not play-by-play, so if you are a former pro wrestler, and I learned this from Vince McMahon; you have to take your ego and what you did because it is not about you, it is a humbling job. I put over more guys as a commentator than as a worker, but you have to take your ego, and put it behind the curtain as Vince McMahon told me. You have to be able to, the key is you have to put your agenda and ego aside and keep it in the Gorilla position,” Taz said in the interview with Jericho.

“You can’t bring it to the announce desk. I am someone that believes that as a former world champion and as a color commentator. That is not a knock on any current color commentator, but I believe in the guys that have been to the dance, drawn some money and know what it takes to have a title. It is a big deal to have that responsibility, as you know, and it is a big deal.”

“I believe, and I know that it is going to sound negative on those that weren’t world champions; Corey Graves was a former tag team champion in NXT. Byron Saxton barely worked, so that to me jumps out. I believe in that. You can’t tell me as a fan, if I have never been a wrestler, you can’t tell me what it is like to be a world champion if you have never done it; I’m sorry,” Taz continued. “I hope for the best of those guys, and no disrespect to those guys. I met Corey Graves, and he seems like a great guy, but that is my opinion. You need some legitimate sea legs under you as a professional wrestler, I really believe that. I think putting your ego and checking it, and having the chops to talk obviously.”

Graves responded in tweet which he has since deleted,

“Insecurity is a bad color on you @OfficialTAZ, shoulda stuck to orange and black.”

Taz responded with the following Tweet saying he has no clue what Cory was talking about.
