After five years of being with the company Taz seems to have parted ways with TNA wrestling after having a dispute with the company over pay. Until recently there had been talk that TNA was behind on paying talents due to issues with the Panda Energy home office not sending out the checks. But as of this writing it seems that TNA was far enough behind on the pay for Taz not to show up at the TNA Headquarters last Thursday for a voiceover session. The voiceover session was so that management could add the commentary to several weeks of Impact.
Taz showed up in TNA almost right after leaving WWE in 2009 and at first Taz was a "mentor" of sorts for Samoa Joe, but then took over the color commentary job for former announcer Don West. Also during Taz's time in TNA he would become a shocking member of the Ace's & Eight's faction in 2012. Now two questions arise from this and they are where does Taz go next and who will TNA replace Taz with for commentary. Well the first question I don't have answer for because I don't really know where Taz will go, he could end up in any company from WWE to House of Hardcore.
But the other question seems like it might have been answered already as it seems that TNA might be having Al Snow take over the commentary job for Taz at least for the time being. For those who might not be aware Snow does actually experience in the booth as was at point an announcer for the WWE on shows such as Raw, Heat, Velocity, etc. This could be a thing for TNA in the long run as it could give them a fresh sound and maybe even a different feel.
