- As noted, former WWE, ECW and TNA star Taz recently spoke with Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard blog to promote "The Taz Show: Bodyslams and Beyond," which can be seen at this link. Taz also commented on traveling with Vince McMahon after joining the WWE broadcast team full-time:
"I had the opportunity for so long to travel every week on Vince's plane. Michael Cole and I would travel with Vince and the writers because we had to get back to Connecticut to do the voiceovers for Smackdown, so I got to see Vince behind the scenes 30,000 feet in the air. He'd be sitting there at one in the morning, on a flight from Anaheim to New York, while everyone was struggling to keep their eyes open, and he'd be working non-stop."
Taz confirmed rumors that no one is allowed to sleep on Vince's plane unless the man himself is sleeping, or unless you were a wrestler. He said:
"I've seen Triple H fall asleep on the plane, and it wasn't a problem. I fell asleep on that plane many a time and it wasn't a problem. If you took some bumps and you fell asleep, it was no problem. If you're a writer or a play-by-play announcer, it was going to be a problem. It was never mean-spirited, it was like high school with money. It was fun."
- Mark Henry, Titus O'Neil, Tyson Kidd and Natalya represented WWE at a NBCUniversal Family Night event at Universal Studios in Orlando this past Friday night. Below are photos and a video of Titus surprising his nephew at school before the event:
