• Mick Foley Takes Credit For Bray Wyatt & Kevin Owens’ Success

On an episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley talked about his biggest influence on the professional wrestling business and changing the way main event pro wrestlers are supposed to look like.

Here’s what Foley had to say about what his most significant contribution was:

“Probably expanding people’s ideas of what a big star could look like. That was probably the biggest.

I think I expanded, opened the door for guys to follow, like Kevin Owens, like Bray Wyatt, who might not have gotten a look as a star. I’d like to think my lasting contribution is that I think I treated people well when I was on top, and that goes back to remembering how I was treated in Memphis.”

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.
