Bruce Prichard On Why Vince McMahon Told Mike Adamle & Taz To Walk Off Commentary In 2008

During an episode of “Something To Wrestle”, Bruce Prichard discussed Vince McMahon ordering Taz and Mike Adamle off commentary during an episode of ECW in 2008. According to Prichard, Vince did it as the start to an angle that never materialized. Here are the highlights:

On Why Taz & Adamle Walked Off The ECW Set:

I remember it very well. Taz had been on Mike Adamle’s s**t, and you could tell that Mike was getting flustered. And Mike was firing back at Taz and what-have-you. And Vince just finally said, ‘Mike, get up and walk away. Just get up and leave, come on back.’ And he did. And I met Mike, Vince told me, ‘Grab Mike and have him wait for me in my office.’ And then I came back, said, ‘What the f**k?’ He said, ‘What do you think we should do?’ ‘So what are you doing?’ And next thing you know, [Vince] told Taz, ‘Just get up and walk away, Taz. Just get up and come back.’ And I met Taz and took him back to Vince’s office. And we all waited in there for Vince to come back. And Vince came back, said, ‘Ah, there’s something with you two bickering. I think I may want to do something with it.’

On How Taz Reacted:

I remember Taz being just confused — pissed, but more confused ’cause nobody — I didn’t know what the f**k was going on. He sure as hell didn’t know what was going on. And they didn’t know if they were in trouble, they didn’t know if Vince was pissed. I’m trying to tell them, ‘He’s not pissed, he’s laughing up there. And I think he’s got an idea.’ It never materialized to anything, but in that moment, it was a moment of confusion, and totally ‘What the f**k?’ I don’t think anybody in the [production] truck knew what was going on, and we had them leave separately and leave right then. Then we started thinking about it, and Vince was like, ‘Ah, there’s nothing there.’ And we went, ‘Next!’
