Taz joined Wrestling Inc.'s WINCLY podcast last month and spoke about the potential for him to return to the booth and what he'd be looking for in a promotion.
"It's been several years since I've done commentary in pro wrestling and over time it's something I've missed," Taz said. "Anybody who listens to my podcast, they're not super-shocked as I talked about this in one of my shows about a month ago that I missed commentary. Then it just blew up and truth be told, it was a part of my career that I loved.
"No matter if it was for WWE or TNA – when I went to TNA it was a hot property back then. Then I got to meet Mike Tenay and we became really good friends. I had a lot of fun doing it and when I transitioned from the ring to the commentary desk, it was actually a hard thing to do. I didn't want to do it but Vince McMahon felt it was the next chapter for me.
"The No. 1 thing is credibility in the ring. To me, there needs to be talent. When I say credibility, I don't mean star talent. I mean guys and girls that can go in the ring; that are athletic and their intensity is there. I don't want a situation where it's a young wrestler that is a little green and is making mistakes in the ring. Now, if I can't call out that mistake or call out that they are sloppy, then it hurts my credibility as a broadcaster. If I do bring forward to the audience what this guy or girl can't do, then it's a negative and I'm bashing the talent which is a no-no in my book. I'm hurting this person's brand or future potentially."
