Rob Terry has benefited from the working relationship between TNA and Wrestle-1. He recently finished up a tour o Japan, where he worked a couple of matches for the new promotion. He also helped the Great Muta and Kaz Hayashi judge new talents trying out for the company.
"If I was in complete control of TNA, I would do anything, if WWE right now was going left; I would go right. And if they started going right; I would go left. So that's what I would do. I would try to be the complete opposite of WWE. That's just my opinion. I don't have millions invested. I don't make tons and tons of money as an upper management guy. I don't go in focus groups. I'm not part of that whole research team. I, this is just some blue-collared guy from Brooklyn that wrestled for a living that talks about wrestlers now giving you my opinion. Doesn't mean I'm right. I'm probably wrong. But that's just what I would do as a wrestling fan and a former wrestler; is try to be, look I think our show last night, it looked awesome."
- Taz discussing how he would run TNA if he was in charge backstage
Another person that has been gaining some power backstage in TNA is Taz. Aside from being the voice of Impact Wrestling, he also has been helping out with the creative department. Taz was also instrumental in the return of Tommy Dreamer to the front office.
With a million dollar body, many within the wrestling industry believe that Rob Terry can eventually become a star, but he needs more experience first. Terry is wisely taking that advice by working plenty of matches for OVW, the indies and even Japan.
Steve Austin revealed that he is interviewing TNA announcer Taz for an upcoming episode of his popular podcast series.
"....and I'm STILL NOT buying TNA nor would I ever want to affect the team of Mike Tenay and Taz. They have great chemistry and as I have said before they do a great job with what is provided them on their monitor."
Former ECW stars Lance Storm and Taz took to Twitter to make fun of unlikely TNA star Norv Fernum.
Rob Terry will also be wrestling at the Wrestle-1 show, where AJ Styles will defend the TNA title, in Japan in a few days.
Since his contract only has a certain amount of dates on there, Taz was allowed to miss an episode of Impact Wrestling.
