Career

Senerchia debuted in professional wrestling in Puerto Rico in 1987 after being trained by Johnny Rodz. He wrestled as Kid Krush before moving on to the name Tasmaniac, which he would use variations on for the rest of his career.[2] In the early 1990s, as The Tasmaniac, he wrestled for International World Class Championship Wrestling and held the IWCCW Light Heavyweight Championship for six months in 1991.[7] Johnny Rodriguez is a former professional wrestler. ...

Extreme Championship Wrestling

In October 1993, he and Jack Chetti debuted in the Philadelphia-based Eastern Championship Wrestling (ECW)— just prior to its name change to Extreme Championship Wrestling — as the tag team The Tazmaniacs.[8] When that team broke up he was put into one with Kevin Sullivan, with whom he won the ECW Tag Team Championship twice[5]; the Tazmaniac becoming a double champion during their second reign when he also held the ECW Television Championship for one night in March of 1994.[4] For most of the rest of the year he floated around the tag ranks, teaming with different partners. He held the title once more, this time with Sabu, until Sabu was (legitimately) fired by ECW owner Paul Heyman for no showing an event in favor of appearing at another event in Japan.[9] For other uses, see Philadelphia (disambiguation) and Philly. ...

Tazmanic was put out of action by a (legitimate) injury for much of 1995. During a tag team match 2 Cold Scorpio and Dean Malenko delivered a spike piledriver to him, and though he knew it was coming, he didn't have time to properly protect himself. As he explained on the DVD documentary The Rise and Fall of ECW, "The impact jacked my neck back and that was it." The neck injury was so bad that, according to Tommy Dreamer, hospital staff couldn't believe he'd walked into the hospital where he sought help after the match. Though he was unable to wrestle, Paul Heyman continued to pay him per their oral agreement, forging a loyalty between the men.[10]-1...

When he returned, he did so with a revamped gimmick and used the shortened name Taz. The new character had him clad in a black singlet and exhibiting a more physically intense in-ring style, focusing his offense on suplexes — which announcer Joey Styles called "Tazplexes" — earning him the nickname "Human Suplex Machine". He also debuted his Tazmission finishing maneuver, causing opponents to tap out to signal their submission as in mixed martial arts instead of nodding their head or vocally saying "yes". This quirk was soon picked up by other companies throughout the country.[11] After feuds with 2 Cold Scorpio, Jason, and Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Paul Varelans, Taz and his former partner Sabu were put into a angle stemming from the firing incident years earlier. The two chased each other throughout 1996 and 1997, including having an altercation on Monday Night RAW, the flagship show of their "competition", during a working agreement between the two companies.[9] The feud was all designed to lead to ECW's first pay-per-view, Barely Legal, where Taz defeated Sabu with his Tazmission,[12] only to have his manager, Bill Alfonso, turn on him and join Sabu and his partner Rob Van Dam.[2] Two months later, at Wrestlepalooza, Taz took the Television Championship from Shane Douglas to begin his second reign,[4] starting a feud with Bam Bam Bigelow over it and eventually losing it to him.

After losing the TV championship, Taz was elevated into the World Heavyweight Championship picture. In May of 1998, with Shane Douglas injured and unable to wrestle, Taz was given an old Television Championship belt painted orange — his trademark color — and began cutting promos declaring himself the FTW Heavyweight Champion of the World. Though the championship was unsanctioned in kayfabe, it was defended at ECW shows until Douglas was healthy,[13] at which time Taz defeated him for the ECW World Heavyweight title.[14] Just before winning the World title, Taz "gave" the FTW title to long time foe Sabu in a match where he physically pulled Sabu on top of him to allow him to get the pin.[6] Taz held the ECW World Championship for nine months before he signed with the World Wrestling Federation, losing the title as the first man eliminated in a three way dance at Anarchy Rulz.[15] As he walked out of the ring, a large portion of the ECW locker room joined him on the entrance ramp to give him an emotional sendoff. After being off of ECW television for most of the fall, he wrestled one final match as an ECW performer at November to Remember, losing to Rob Van Dam via pinfall.[16] In professional wrestling, a promo is short for promotional interview, a dialogue or monologue used to advance a storyline. ...

Wrestling

Taz debuted for the World Wrestling Federation — with the slightly modified ring name Tazz — at the January 2000 Royal Rumble in a win over the previously undefeated Kurt Angle.[17] Just a few months after Tazz arrived in the WWF, Mike Awesome, the man he'd dropped the ECW World Heavyweight Championship to, signed with World Championship Wrestling. Legal wrangling by Paul Heyman prevented Awesome from taking the title belt with him, and in a piece of bizarre wrestling history, ECW and WWF officials agreed to have Tazz, a WWF wrestler, make a surprise appearance at an ECW show to defeat Awesome, a WCW wrestler, for the ECW Championship.[18] Tazz held the belt for ten days before losing it to Tommy Dreamer, during which time he wore it on various WWF shows, including an episode of SmackDown! where he lost to the WWF Champion Triple H [19]— a booking decision Vince McMahon later expressed some regret about.[20] World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. ...

After losing the ECW title, Tazz was placed into the WWF Intercontinental Championship picture, but never won the title. In the summer, after taking time off for an arm injury, he was turned heel and placed into a feud with color commentator Jerry "the King" Lawler.[21] The feud included matches at SummerSlam[22] and Unforgiven pay-per-views, which they split.[23] Tazz was only able to pick up the Unforgiven win when he received help from a debuting Raven, however, and afterwards the duo formed a tag team that lasted until November.

When the Invasion angle began Tazz acted as "the voice of the WCW/ECW Alliance", sticking up for them and telling their side whenever possible.

He still makes sporadic in-ring appearances, though they usually only last minutes and consist of him using a handful of moves before applying the Tazmission.


Commentating

His injuries mounting, Tazz began performing part time commentary on Sunday Night HEAT in October 2000. He joined the SmackDown! team in February after Jerry "the King" Lawler quit the company, as well as becoming one of the trainers for the joint WWF/MTV produced reality series Tough Enough.[21] WWE Heat (formerly known as WWE Sunday Night Heat and capatilized as WWE HEAT) is a professional wrestling show for World Wrestling Entertainment, showcasing talent from the Raw roster with lower-card matches. ...

When World Wrestling Entertainment split into two brands, Tazz was put on SmackDown!, where he again became color commentator.[28] Not long after he retired from the ring, he became a full time broadcaster.[29] He co-hosted SmackDown! for World Wrestling Entertainment until a third brand, ECW, was introduced, at which point he became the color commentator for that show.[1] He is also the host of History of Extreme Championship Wrestling on WWE 24/7, a show that shows archived episodes of the original ECW television.

NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Tazz (5753 words)
Tazz (the second Z was added to avoid a lawsuit with Warner Brothers over their animated character Taz) made his official WWF debut at the 2000 Royal Rumble, and became the first man to defeat Kurt Angle.
A month or so later, Tazz was involved in the WWF Intercontinental Championship hunt, but was unable to defeat Chris Benoit for the title on two occasions (even though he defeated Chris Benoit in a non-title match by DQ earlier in their series of bouts).
Tazz signed a contract with the WWF in November 1999 and was set to debut at the 2000 Royal Rumble.
