• Mick Foley Reveals The Real Reason Why He Deleted His Twitter Account

We recently reported that Old School WWF Legend Mick Foley deleted his Twitter account after Elon Musk bought it. Musk promised to bring free speech back to the famous social media network.

On the new episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, the former Cactus Jack claimed that the real reason why he left Twitter was that he couldn’t manage to stay off it.

Here’s what Foley had to say:

“It would be easy to blame the atmosphere on Twitter. That was part of it, but since day one, I had trouble using Twitter in moderation, so it’s mostly on me. I struggled with it. I think a lot of people do.

Then you get to where you’re spending hours a day just looking at everything on there, and as it became progressively more divisive, I began to feel like I was swimming in a pool full of turds.

One turd, you can dodge that turd. Right? You can still enjoy the crystal clear water. But at a certain point, when being on Twitter just becomes an exercise in dodging turds, it’s time to get out of the water and that’s what I did.”

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

Mick didn’t appreciate being yelled at into his earpiece by Vince McMahon though, so this job resulted in him giving his notice and jumping ship to TNA later that year.

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