After reports of TNA and Taz having issues as of late, TNA’s John Gaburick tweeted out the following today confirming his departure:
After 5+ years TNA & Taz have mutually decided to part ways. A champ in the ring & on the mic, we wish him nothing but success! @OfficialTAZ

As noted earlier on the site, Taz did not come to a planned voice-over session in Nashville, TN this past Thursday as scheduled to do commentary for several weeks of Impact Wrestling. According to Pwinsider.com, the issues between the two sides are because of pay issues. Taz reportedly refused to get on his flight from New York to Nashville so he could do the Impact Wrestling voiceovers. Al Snow recently got a tryout as an announcer so he could be the person that will replace Taz. The voiceovers were done by Josh Mathews but they could be redone if they decide to use Al Snow going forward.
