from Jason Powell prowrestling.net:
WWE Smackdown color commentator Tazz’s contract with the company is expiring and he finished with the company on Monday night, according to PWInsider.com. He was on commentary last night at the Smackdown tapings and his final broadcast will air on Friday night.
Jason Powell’s POV: I don’t know how much this had to do with anything, but I previously reported that Tazz didn’t take Vince McMahon’s abrasive production style well. He’s complained to friends about being yelled at by Vince, and had to be talked out of confronting Vince on at least one occasion. It will be interesting to see who fills in for Tazz at WrestleMania 25 and whether that person turns out to be his long-term replacement.
