Between 2008 and 2011, fellow WWF Legend Mick Foley joined Kurt Angle on the TNA roster and our Olympic Hero ended up praising Mick on a recent episode of his ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast.

Here’s what Kurt said:

“That was awesome. I mean, Mick is such a credential to the company. He’s a huge asset.

I would consider him, even though he wasn’t working as much at this point in time, I would consider him about as valuable as me, coming to that company.

I really do. I don’t know if I’m putting him over or myself.

Mick was so entertaining. He was really funny on the microphone. He didn’t work as much, he didn’t wrestle in the ring quite as much.

He did every once in a while. But he was a huge asset to the company, and having someone like him involved in the company was a big deal.”

Mick Foley officially retired in 2000 but returned for several matches in 2004, 2006 & 2007, before working as a color commentator on ‘SmackDown!’ in 2008.

Foley didn’t appreciate being yelled at into his earpiece by Vince McMahon though, so this resulted in him giving his notice and jumping ship to TNA later that year, where he – again – came out of his in-ring retirement for several matches.

The Hardcore Legend went on to win the TNA Legends Championship and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
