Taz took to social media earlier today and revealed that he is recovering from stem cell treatment on his knee. “The Human Suplex Machine” notes that it is his first time trying stem cell treatments but he is remaining optimistic about what will come of the process.
“First Stem Cell & PRP treatment on this banged-up knee….I’m feeling good about how the end result will be!” Taz writes.
Trained by WWE Hall of Famer Johnny Rodz, Taz first debuted back in 1986. He made appearances for IWCCW, NJPW, WWE, and WCW, among other promotions, before debuting for the ECW (Eastern Championship Wrestling) promotion in 1993. That promotion would become ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) a year later, and the rest is history.
Taz became a two-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion, a three-time ECW World Tag Team Champion, and a two-time ECW World Television Champion. He also held the WWE Tag Team Titles once, and the WWE Hardcore Title on three occasions. He has also found success at the announce table, and as a manager, for TNA/Impact Wrestling, and WWE.
Taz is currently working as a commentator with AEW and has previously appeared alongside “Team Taz” members FTW Champion Ricky Starks, Powerhouse Hobbs, and his real-life son, Hook.
