Should Tazz have been a bigger deal in WWE?
Would he have been a much bigger deal if he was around now as opposed to then?
The problem now is that most of his "shooter" rep and bonafides were the creation of Paul Heyman's hype machine. Today he'd be a guy who throws suplexes, but we know what a UFC fighter looks like, and it ain’t Tazz.
The problem back then was that he was the little guy who threw suplexes and hit hard, but then Benoit came in two weeks later and was like “Hold my beer, eh?” and suddenly they didn’t need Tazz anymore.
