Take this as pure speculation, but a now-deleted Tweet by Taz has raised speculation that he may be jumping ship to WWE. The TNA announcer posted the following to Twitter today:
“Couple of big wrestling shows in my “hometown” of Brooklyn! #RedHookNearBarclay”
The tweet is no longer present on his account. WWE is taping RAW in the Barclays Center on July 15th, their first RAW in the venue. Sources within TNA have confirmed that Taz’s contract with the company is set to expire in a couple of weeks and while TNA is running a Brooklyn show on July 5th, it is not in the Barclays Center but rather MCU Field, which Taz made no reference to.
UPDATED: According to sources, Taz’s contract could be ending earlier than believed, with a source noting that his final contracted appearance could happen as soon as Saturday’s iMPACT! Wrestling taping. That taping is for the episodes on July 4th and July 11th.
More as we get it. I can’t stress this enough – THIS IS NOT CONFIRMED AND IS ONLY RUMOR/SPECULATION!! Stay tuned!
