Career

Senerchia debuted in 1987 as Kid Krush, but mainly worked as The Tasmanian Devil (later changed to The Tasmaniac) for Northeastern-based promotions such as the Joel Goodhart-run Tri-States Wrestling Alliance (a promotion which specialized in "hardcore" wrestling) and International World Class Championship Wrestling, where he held the IWCCW Light Heavyweight Championship for six months in 1991.

Extreme Championship Wrestling

Peter Senerchia enjoyed considerable success from 1993 to 1999 in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), wrestling as The Tazmaniac and later simply Taz. Over several years, his undefeated streak and combination of technical mat maneuvers, submission holds gleaned from his judo background and a wide array of suplexes (which led him to be dubbed "The Human Suplex Machine") earned him a degree of infamy.

At a Fort Lauderdale, Florida ECW show in 1995 during a tag team match pitting him and Eddie Guerrero against 2 Cold Scorpio and Dean Malenko, Senerchia, wrestling as The Tazmaniac, was the victim of a botched spike piledriver. As Senerchia explains it, he did not have time to adequately protect himself and thus landed on his forehead - "The impact jacked my neck back and that was it." Senerchia remained on the ring apron for the rest of the match, but was visibly injured and could not continue. After the match, Tommy Dreamer accompanied Taz to the hospital, where the doctors had difficulty believing Senerchia had walked into the hospital because, he had, in fact, broken his neck. Senerchia was sidelined for over nine months, and when he returned, the Tazmaniac gimmick was no more. Senerchia, now known simply as Taz (A play on then popular Mixed Martial Arts Fighter Kimo) and exhibiting a physically more intense in-ring style, became one of ECW's most popular stars, capturing the ECW World Heavyweight Championship twice.

His feud with Sabu, whom he defeated at the first televised ECW pay-per-view, Barely Legal 1997, is considered by some to be among the best of the 1990s.

The Mike Awesome Title Controversy

As a favor to Paul Heyman (who was working with the WWF for some time), Senerchia returned to ECW while under WWF contract in April 2000. He surprised the fans by appearing at an Indianapolis, Indiana ECW show and defeating Mike Awesome to win the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. Awesome had recently signed with the rival World Championship Wrestling (WCW) promotion, and although Awesome agreed to lose the title, in his reported words: "to anyone," it became known that WCW had given Awesome a large bonus to bring the ECW World Heavyweight Championship belt to WCW. Heyman successfully sought a court injunction to prevent Awesome from bringing the belt to WCW and had him lose the belt to Senerchia. Senerchia then returned to the WWF and faced WWF Champion Triple H in the first ever singles match between the ECW and WWF World Heavyweight Champions before making a final ECW appearance, losing the belt to Tommy Dreamer several weeks later.

Senerchia made his official WWF debut at the 2000 Royal Rumble as Tazz, and became the first man to defeat Kurt Angle. The next night on RAW, Tazz defeated the Mean Street Posse in a 3-on-1 handicap match. However, after the match, Kurt Angle came out to attack Tazz, which sparked their short feud that led to a match involving Tazz, Angle and The Rock. Tazz was able to defeat Kurt Angle one more time, before moving on to defeat the Big Boss Man at No Way Out 2000. Senerchia then entered a thirteen-man battle royal for the WWF Hardcore Championship at WrestleMania 2000 where he secured the title twice; once by pinning Crash Holly and once by pinning Pete Gas, but lost the title almost immediately on both occasions.

A month or so later, Senerchia 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). He was then sidelined with an arm injury. Upon his return, Senerchia turned heel by knocking out Rikishi with a camcorder and later defeated Al Snow at Fully Loaded 2000 then began feuding with commentators Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler. He lost to Lawler at SummerSlam 2000, but defeated him in a strap match at Unforgiven 2000 with the help of the debuting Raven.

By 2001 Senerchia turned face again and was more focused on commentating than wrestling. He wrestled at WrestleMania X-Seven defeating the Right To Censor, which he considers the highlight of his career. Paul Heyman then reformed ECW within the WWF during the Invasion storyline, which saw Senerchia turn heel again by joining The Alliance before he was thrown out of the faction by Alliance Leader and then heel, Stone Cold Steve Austin due to his mistrust and questioning of authority (Austin coined his "What?" catchphrase during this segment).

In 2002 Senerchia defeated the Dudley Boyz for the WWF Tag Team Championships with Spike Dudley as his partner. They lost the titles to Billy and Chuck shortly before Senerca announced his retirement as a result of chronic neck problems. In his final match on RAW, Senerchia defeated Mr. Perfect in which at the end of the match, he cut a short promo -- "It looks like the perfect pick became just another victim!" There was some speculation that he would undergo surgery similar to that performed on Kurt Angle by Dr. Hae-Dong Jho, which would involve "shaving" down affected vertebrae and disks in his neck rather than fusing them, which would likely have ended his career.
