Mick Foley Appears On Not Sam Wrestling Podcast

Mick Foley Talks About Facing Difficulties In Latest WWE Run As RAW G.M.

As noted, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley recently appeared as a guest on the Not Sam Wrestling podcast for an in-depth interview. Featured below are some additional highlights from the discussion.

On how the end of his latest WWE run was handled creatively: “I definitely needed some weeks off, and let’s just say in the interim period, let’s just say Mr. McMahon found a shinier toy [Kurt Angle] and I was no longer needed in that spot, but I had a great eight months, and the only thing you can ask for is a good send off, and instead of a soap opera where I would be killed off, I had a glorious firing by Stephanie McMahon. It really was. The week before when I had the face to face confrontation with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, it was one of the best moments that I had in the past 10 years in the business. I had that post pay-per-view rush that I hadn’t had in a long time, which was all I could ask for.”

On struggling at times with his General Manager role but enjoying it overall: “It was a tough job, and the strange thing about it was the unparalleled negativity from the fan base on social media, who apparently thought WWE really allowed a 53-year-old with a fanny pack to run a billion-dollar corporation. Most of the comments will be negative, and I did have some say in certain instances, and part of that job was to see which battles to fight and why. There would be times when I would talk to Mr. McMahon and say that I would like to handle this on my own. I had some words, and how I say something is more important than what I say. If I had left six or seven lasting impressions in the eight-month span then that is a pretty good track record.”
