On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, Mick Foley revealed that WWE promoter Vince McMahon thought that his ‘ECW One Night Stand 2006’ pay-per-view match with Edge & Lita against Terry Funk, Tommy Dreamer & Beulah McGillicutty would be terrible to watch, but after the event Mr. McMahon ended up admitting he was wrong.

The ‘ECW One Night Stand 2006’ PPV took place on June 11th 2006 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, New York.

Edge, Mick Foley & Lita won the above mentioned ‘Hardcore Match’ in 18 minutes & 45 seconds.

Here’s what Foley had to say:

“This is the takeaway from the match I was in at ECW One Night Stand 2006. The next day, I go into Vince’s, I go ‘Vince?’. He goes ‘Yeah, Mick?’. He goes ‘Alright, I was wrong’.

I said ‘And it was?’. ‘It was very good, it was very good’, and then I walked out of the office and I realized that in his world, this was just another cog in the wheel.

I almost felt like Indiana Jones in, well he wasn’t there but when you see that the Lost Ark is just one in thousands of artifacts.

It’s being filed away, probably never to be seen again and I don’t think Vince McMahon is giving this match a second thought.”

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.

In 2013, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his former rival & tag team partner Terry Funk.
