Taz makes a special appearance as the pre-show commentator on Full Gear on November 9, 2019. Taz made his Dynamite debut on commentary on the January 1, 2020, AEW Dynamite episode, replacing Tony Schiavone. Taz was formally revealed as having inked a multi-year contract with AEW on January 16, 2020, and he would be joining the broadcast team of AEW. On May 20, 2020, at Double or Nothing, Taz escorted rookie Brian Cage to the ring for the Casino Ladder Match and seemed to be the role
of an overseer. After Cage prevailed in the bout, Taz joined him in celebrating the win, which elevated him to the top of the AEW World Championship challenger rankings.
Senercia began her career as a nationally syndicated morning radio broadcaster in 2018. She co-hosted Taz and The Moose on CBS Sports Radio weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m. Eastern with Marc “The Moose” Malusis. Senercia revealed he was quitting the show in December 2019.
In November of 2016, Tazz appeared with former ECW management Paul Heyman and wrestlers Bubba Ray Dudley, D-Von Dudley, and Tommy Dreamer on the WWE Network special The Authentic Untold Story of ECW. Corey Graves hosted the hour-long event, during which the participants discussed their experiences in ECW and the impact the promotion had on their careers.
Taz’s departure from TNA was formally announced on April 15, 2015.
Taz attended Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan’s wedding as a groomsman on the January 17, 2013 broadcast of Impact Wrestling. Taz turned heel once again when he revealed a kutte underneath his coat, interrupting Ray and Brooke’s vow renewal to declare himself a member of Aces & Eights. Aces & Eights invaded the wedding after learning of Ray’s secret and attacked Ray, his groomsmen Tommy Dreamer and Brother Runt, as well as Brooke’s father Hulk Hogan. Taz disclosed on Impact Wrestling the next week that he joined Aces & Eights in order to be a part of an organization that follows a higher power. In the
Impact Wrestling’s November 21 show saw Aces & Eights’ dissolution following Bully Ray’s defeat by Mr. Anderson, which also saw Anderson continue his career in TNA.
In August of 2008, Tazz replaced Mick Foley as a color commentator on SmackDown, and Tazz was replaced by Raw star Matt Striker on the ECW brand. When Foley left the company, Tazz became the permanent color commentator for the SmackDown brand once again. Tazz left WWE on April 3, 2009, as his contract was about to expire. His WWE.com profile was moved from the active SmackDown roster list to the alumni list for a short time before being completely removed, confirming his departure from the company.
On the August 20, 2009 episode of Impact!, Taz replaced Don West as the promotion’s color commentator and also became a face upon stating that he was only loosely associated with the Mafia and that he had taught Joe everything he knew and that it was now up to Joe to use his newfound skills. In May 2012, Taz began appearing as a judge in the monthly Gut Check segment on Impact Wrestling. During the recording of the April 29, 2008 episode of ECW, Tazz’s broadcast partner Mike Adamle abruptly walked off set prior to the main event. Moments later, after reading the promo for the upcoming pay-per-view, Tazz walked out as well, leaving the main event with no commentators. On December 13, 2010, Tazz Senercia (as Tazz) appears as a playable character in WWF No Mercy, WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role, WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It, WWE SmackDown! Shut Your Mouth, SmackDown vs. Raw 2007, and SmackDown vs. Raw 2009. Senercia joined Right After Wrestling and stated that it “pisses him off” when companies try to recreate the original ECW. He stated that the original ECW worked because “it was that era, that group of people, that leader in Paul Heyman. We were that little engine that could.”
Tazz was placed on the SmackDown! brand after World Wrestling Entertainment divided into two brands, returning to his role as color commentator. Soon after leaving the ring, he started working as a broadcaster full-time. Before a third brand, ECW, was launched in 2006, he co-hosted SmackDown! for World Wrestling Entertainment. He later joined that program as a color commentator. Alongside Joey Styles, he co-hosted WWE 24/7 Classics’ History of Extreme Championship Wrestling, which replays past installments of the original ECW’s weekly television shows. He and Styles share their memories of the plots, internal dynamics, and overall atmosphere of ECW before to and throughout episodes.
A week-long trial run of a show on Howard 101 on Sirius Satellite Radio was presented by Tazz and Michael Cole, his SmackDown! broadcasting partner, in February 2006, but the show was not picked up. Between late summer 2006 and early 2007, he also aired a conversation show on 92.3 Free FM at irregular intervals. However, the show was not taken up, and the station changed its format, substituting music for all post-morning programming. Tazz defeated Jerry Lawler in his last-ever match on June 11, 2006, at the ECW One Night Stand.
After his in-ring career with the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E) ended prematurely in 2002, he moved into a role as a color commentator, which he remained in until his contract with
The WWE ended in April of 2009. Senerchia made his Total Nonstop Action Wrestling debut two months later at their Victory Road pay-per-view, ring name Taz. He later returned to his prior position as a color commentator for TNA’s broadcasts, taking Don West’s place.
In October 2000, Tazz started doing Sunday Night Heat commentary on a part-time basis as his ailments continued to increase. In February 2001, following Jerry Lawler’s departure from the business, he became a member of the SmackDown! team. He had previously called his first pay-per-view on No Way Out alongside Jim Ross and served as a trainer for the WWF/MTV reality series Tough Enough. On November 19, 2001, Lawler rejoined the organization and took over as commentator, with Tazz transitioning into a dual role as a commentator and wrestler. In January
He and Spike Dudley defeated Billy and Chuck to win the Tag Team Championship in 2002. They held the title for more than a month.
Following his 1999 contract with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Taz made his WWF debut in 2000 at Madison Square Garden’s Royal Rumble, defeating the unbeaten Kurt Angle under a slightly altered ring name. Mike Awesome, against whom Tazz had lost the ECW World Heavyweight Championship at Anarchy Rulz, surreptitiously signed with WCW a few months after Tazz joined the WWF. Paul Heyman’s legal maneuvering kept Awesome from taking the title belt with him, and in a strange turn of events in the history of professional wrestling, ECW and WWF
Officials decided that Tazz, a WWF wrestler, would challenge Awesome, a WCW wrestler, for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship by making an unexpected visit at an ECW show. Before surrendering it to Tommy Dreamer, Tazz was the WWF Champion for 10 days. During that time, he wore the title on a number of WWF programs, including an episode of SmackDown! where he was defeated by Triple H. Vince McMahon eventually apologized for scheduling Tazz to lose to Triple H, though.
Taz suffered his first defeat since 1995 when he was defeated by Sabu in the rematch two months later at Wrestlepalooza. But he started his second reign later that evening when he defeated Shane Douglas for the World Television Championship. He defended the title from competitors of various kinds, including
Al Snow, Chris Candido, Lance Storm, John Kronus, Douglas, and Jerry Lynn. In addition to Sabu and Van Dam, Taz started a feud with The Triple Threat in late 1997. During the conflict, he occasionally teamed up with Tommy Dreamer. He challenged World Heavyweight Champion Bam Bam Bigelow at November to Remember. After Bigelow turned on Taz in a bout against Shane Douglas and Chris Candido, the two would eventually cross paths. In the end, on March 1, 1998, Taz would lose the title at Living Dangerously to Bam Bam Bigelow.Taz was promoted to the World Heavyweight Championship picture after losing the World Television Championship. When Shane Douglas became injured in May 1998 and was unable to wrestle, Taz was awarded an outdated World Television Championship.
He had his distinctive orange belt painted, started filming promos, and proclaimed himself the FTW Heavyweight Champion at It Ain’t Seinfeld. Even though the championship wasn’t officially sanctioned in the plot, it was kept safe at ECW events until Douglas recovered. In a match where he forcibly hauled Sabu on top of him to enable him to make the pin, Taz “gave” the FTW Heavyweight Title to his longtime opponent Sabu just before capturing the World Heavyweight Championship.
The rivalry between Sabu and Taz was intensifying at the beginning of 1997 when Taz attacked Sabu’s partner, Rob Van Dam, ruining their team’s games against The Eliminators and other teams. Taz would use the Tazmission to strangle out lesser wrestlers in the months before ECW’s inaugural pay-per-view because he thought that his matches were only as important as
his competition with Sabu. After dominating a few more battles with Van Dam, he faced Sabu at Barely Legal. Taz used the Tazmission to defeat Sabu, but Bill Alfonso, Taz’s manager, turned on him and sided with Sabu and Rob Van Dam. In reaction, Taz started facing Sabu and Van Dam with Chris Candido in a team.
Taz tried to attack his former partner during Sabu’s bout, when he paired with Rob Van Dam to take on The Eliminators and The Gangstas in a three-way dance. However, Van Dam protected Sabu and ended up getting strangled out in the aisle. Sabu’s team lost as a result of this diversion and he was hit with Total Elimination. Taz also started to dominate Rob Van Dam in a mini-feud.
in each game and missed a brief period of time to get surgery on his damaged shoulder. With no real physical contact, Taz and Sabu kept trying to get at each other as 1996 came to an end and 1997 got underway.
A legitimate injury sidelined the Tazmaniac for a significant portion of 1995. Though he knew it was going to happen, he did not have time to fully defend himself when Cold Scorpio and Dean Malenko delivered a spike piledriver to him on July 15 during a tag team battle. In the DVD documentary The Rise and Fall of ECW, he described what happened: “I landed right on my forehead and just jacked my whole neck back and that was it.” The neck damage
was so severe that, according to Tommy Dreamer, medical personnel found it hard to believe he’d entered the hospital to get aid following the match. Despite his incapacity to wrestle, Paul Heyman paid him in accordance with their verbal agreement, which strengthened the men’s bond.
On December 19, 1995, Taz made his ring comeback at Holiday Hell, with a new appearance and wrestling technique. Because of his new persona, which included a black-and-orange singlet and an increasingly physical in-ring style, he was referred to as “The Human Suplex Machine” by announcer Joey Styles. His offensive strategy was centered on mat wrestling and suplexes, which he got inspiration from working with The Steiner Brothers. Additionally, he unveiled his Tazmission/Katahajime finishing move, which forced opponents to tap out.
was so bad that doctors didn’t think Tommy Dreamer had gone to the hospital after the game for help, according to Dreamer. Paul Heyman paid him as per their verbal arrangement, even though he was incapable of wrestling, which made the men closer.
Taz returned to the ring at Holiday Hell on December 19, 1995, using a new look and style of wrestling. Announcer Joey Styles nicknamed him “The Human Suplex Machine” due to his new identity, which included an increasingly violent in-ring approach and a black-and-orange singlet. His offensive approach was based mostly on suplexes and mat wrestling, which he learned while working with The Steiner Brothers. He also revealed his finishing technique, Tazmission/Katahajime, which made opponents tap.Things appeared to be coming full circle at November to Remember when Taz charged into the ring, interrupting Styles and “stealing Paul E.’s thunder” by declaring that there would be a “big show in the first quarter of the new year,” essentially informing the fans that ECW’s first pay-per-view was imminent. He assured that Sabu would ultimately take him on at that “big show”. Later that evening, he attacked Bob Artese and held him captive in the ring before storming out to drive Scorpio from the ring. Twice, Taz led the audience in chanting “Sabu, Sabu” in an attempt to encourage Sabu to come out and face him. A number of authorities and
Wrestlers emerged, and Taz finally grabbed hold of Paul E. When the lights came back on, Sabu was standing across Taz in the ring. Since early 1995, they had not shared a ring together until now. The lights went out again just as they were about to lock up.
Before Eastern Championship Wrestling (ECW) changed its name to Extreme Championship Wrestling, he and Joe Chetti (brother of Chris Chetti) made their debut as The Tazmaniacs in October 1993. He was placed on a different team with Kevin Sullivan after that one disintegrated, and the two of them went on to win the Tag Team Championship twice. With Sullivan, The Tazmaniac’s second stint as Tag Team Champion saw him turn intobecame a two-time champion after taking home the Television Championship in March 1994 for a single evening. He stayed in and out of the tag rankings for the most of the remaining year, often partnering with other people. He was the champion again, this time with Sabu, until Sabu was rightfully dismissed by Paul Heyman, the owner of ECW, for missing an event so that he could tour Japan with New Japan Pro Wrestling. The Tazmaniac lost to Shane Douglas in the quarterfinals of an eight-man, one-night tournament in August 1994 for the vacant NWA World Heavyweight Championship.
Senerchia, competing under the ring name The Tasmaniac, lost to Ray Odyssey in his debut World Wrestling Federation (WWF) match on August 19, 1991. On February 8, 1993, at a Saturday Night taping in Atlanta, Georgia, he made his one and only appearance in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) by defeating Joey Maggs in a dark match. He later went on to compete as The Tazmaniac. On May 5, 1993, he would subsequently make his second debut in the WWF. Tazmaniac would defeat Scott Taylor in a dark match at a Wrestling Challenge taping in Portland, Maine. He would go on to appear on two more house shows in New Jersey on June 29 and June 30, both times coming up short against Jim Powers.
Senerchia started out in the World Wrestling Council (WWC) and, under Johnny Rodz’s tutelage, had his professional wrestling debut in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on June 3, 1987. Before taking on the monicker The Tazmaniac, which he would use in various incarnations for the remainder of his career, he wrestled as Kid Krush. He competed as The Tazmaniac for International World Class Championship Wrestling (IWCCW) in the early 1990s, and in 1991 he won the organization’s Light Heavyweight Championship for a period of six months. He would depart from IWCCW and join the recently formed Century Wrestling Alliance (CWA), following in Tony Rumble’s footsteps. Additionally, he would go on New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) tours.
