Did You Know?
Taz had suffered a broken neck earlier in the year when Dean Malenko
and 2 Cold Scorpio had botched a spike piledriver in a match against Taz and Eddie Guerrero
. As Joey Styles was doing the in-ring introductions for the Konnan-Jason match at "ECW November to Remember '95", Taz walked down to the ring in a referee shirt. He explained that ECW would not let him wrestle that night because they considered him an insurance risk. Taz asked both guys if they were ready, decked Jason and Konnan powerbombed and pinned him in about 14 seconds. Beulah McGillicutty, then a heel as Raven's storyline girlfriend, was made the special referee for the Bill Alfonso-Tod Gordon match, but Alfonso attacked her and threw her out of the match. The match, such as it was, went on without a referee, complete with Alfonso blading. Taz walked down to the ring and started to count for a Gordon pinfall attempt, stopped, beat up Tod and threw Alfonso on top and counted the pin, thus turning himself heel. Taz said he did it because none of the fans called or wrote or made any attempt to contact him after his injury and that Alfonso was the only person who seemed to care about him. He also rips on the fans for being happy to see Sabu, who had returned earlier that night after seven months in self-imposed exile in WCW, New Japan Pro Wrestling and the indies, Paul E. and whatever and whoever else comes to mind, finally saying to the fans, "I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU!" This is why, when Taz and Alfonso interfere in the Dreamer/Funk-Raven/Cactus match, Joey said, "Oh no, not these two." See more
