• Mick Foley Explains Why He Won’t Accept A Role In WWE Ever Again

During a recent episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, WWF Legend Mick Foley spoke about not being featured (in a non-wrestling role of course) on WWE television since his RAW General Manager storyline between 2016 & 2017.

He talked about the background for why WWE did not bring him back and he wouldn’t likely accept it, if they called him to bring him back.

Here’s what Foley said:

“I can’t remember a written promo and that’s one of the reasons why if I do get a call to appear on WWE TV, I’m more likely to say no.

I saw it in 2012 that I’m making a difference, I thought I was one of the few returning guys who could make a difference, who wanted to make a difference.

That was my primary goal, if you’re going to bring me back, I want to help out a storyline.

I don’t want to just get the pop, and promote something I have coming up, I want to make a difference.

I cannot remember a storyline.”

After wrestling for many different promotions like World Championship Wrestling (WCW), World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW/later USWA Texas), Eastern Championship Wrestling / Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) & several others, he joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1996 and officially retired in 2000, despite coming out of retirement several times in 2004, 2006, 2007 & 2009.

During his WWF career, Foley wrestled as Mankind, Cactus Jack, Dude Love and as himself, but only won the WWF Championship as Mankind.
