Wrestlers put their bodies on the line every single time they step into the squared circle to wrestle. After a long and successful career, Taz is dealing with the wear and tear he did to his body.
Taz has undergone his first stem cell treatment to help repair his knee, which he noted is banged up. In a post on Twitter, he sounded encouraged about how things are going.
He wrote, “first Stem Cell & PRP treatment on this banged up knee….I’m feeling good about how the end result will be!”
Several pro wrestlers have done stem cell therapy including Rey Mysterio, who has spoken highly of how the treatment helps his injuries and has extended his career.
“The Human Suplex Machine” made a name for himself while in ECW where he became one of their biggest stars. He went to WWE in 2000 where he worked as a wrestler before transitioning into an announcer where he spent several years as part of the SmackDown commentary team with Michael Cole. He later left the company to work for TNA Wrestling.
After being away from the pro wrestling business for a few years while hosting his own CBS Sports radio show, Taz started working for All Elite Wrestling in late 2019. He signed a full-time deal with the promotion in January 2020 that will run through 2023.
