• Mick Foley Praises RAW Star For Being A True Heel

During a recent WWE Network special, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley revealed his favorite up & coming talent, Chris Jericho constantly reinventing himself & more.

Below are the highlights:

On his favorite up & coming talent:

“I’ve been a fan of Tommaso Ciampa for a long time. I love what he and Gargano are doing. I love the fact that Ember Moon is creating eyeballs right away. I think Ronda Rousey is doing a tremendous job. I really do. She’s coming along really quickly. Part of what helps any babyface or good guy or woman along the way is a great heel, and I think that Alexa Bliss has developed into a great heel.

I still admire Kevin Owens’ guts for going places as a heel that other heels won’t go. So when he was on top of the cell with Shane McMahon, the crisis of confidence when he was about to go but didn’t want to and he knows that some guys are so concerned about being the cool heel that they’re not willing to show fear, and Kevin will do whatever takes and he will turn any promo given to him into a work of art.”

On Chris Jericho constantly reinventing himself:

“Although Jericho is not an up & comer by any means, I really admire the ways he is constantly evolving. I tell the younger up & coming wrestlers to watch Chris Jericho because he never relies on one thing too long.

I’m proud to say I was the first person to be put on the list. I watched in the back as he was talking to Owens. He was like ‘I can’t stand Foley, you know what I’m gonna do? I am gonna…’ And a guy from catering walked by… I don’t know if it was planned or not, and he grabbed his notebook and he went ‘I’m gonna start a list,’ and he wrote down my name and I looked at whoever was next to me and I said ‘he’ll get that over in 3 weeks.’ He got a scarf over! He got the word ‘IT’ over, simultaneously.

So I really marvel at what he has done. I think everyone should look to him as an example of how to constantly evolve.”
