While doing an interview on the Larry King Now show, Holly Holm was asked about allegations from Taz, who stated that he felt the championship fight with Ronda Rousey was fixed. Holm was adamant in saying that UFC fights will never be fixed. The new champion also stated that anyone involved in a fixed MMA fight will more than likely be banned for life, so the risk is too high for anyone to even consider it.

During a recent interview, Taz talked about an unwritten rule on the Vince McMahon private plane. He stated that no one was allowed to sleep on overnight trips unless McMahon himself was asleep as well. Otherwise, he expects everyone to stay awake and work as hard as he does. The only exception to the rule was if you were an in ring performer. McMahon did not mind them sleeping on the private plane.

During his podcast interview, Taz provided the internet wrestling community with yet another reason to like Shane McMahon. While talking to the commentators one day, McMahon noticed that there were no padding by the announce tables. There was a big spot planned at the pay per view that would see the destruction of those tables. Since he was concerned about the safety of the performers, he started adding padding to the area.

Dana White caused quite the controversy when he said that professional wrestling was fake. It elicited quite the rage from Taz. When asked how he felt about Kevin Nash and CM Punk using the same term to describe the industry, the ECW legend stated that he was fine with that because Nash and Punk have paid their dues to the business. They have sacrificed their bodies to entertain the fans for years.

While it is still pretty early on, it appears that the return on investment for Josh Mathews has been a rather good one for TNA. He is doing a tremendous job of being a one man commentating team after the departure of Taz. The company might have been in a bind had it just been Mike Tenay out there by himself. While he is one of the most knowledgeable guys to ever do the job, Tenay is a guy that works much better when there is a color commentator.
