• The Undertaker Explains Why He Didn’t Mention Mick Foley In His WWE Hall Of Fame Speech

On April 1, 2022, The Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. At the ceremony, he gave one of the best Hall Of Fame speeches ever.

However, Noelle Foley (daughter of Mick Foley) wasn’t happy about the fact that Taker didn’t mention her father during the speech.

Below is what she tweeted:

“That was a great speech, but I’m very surprised there was not one single mention of my dad and their legendary matches together.

Obviously I understand it’s difficult to fit everything into one speech and remember every single person you want to mention.

But it just would have been really nice to hear my dad’s name mentioned.”

During an interview on In the Kliq podcast, Mick had the following to say about Undertaker not mentioning him in his speech:

“Well, listen, I forgot to mention my wife during my (Hall Of Fame) speech, so I’m not one to lecture anybody about who they should and should not include in their speech.

I was not there in those formative years and his [speech] was more about friendship and support. We had a great rivalry, but he didn’t mention Rock or Austin, and he and Austin had some classics as well.

So if I’m not hurt, no one can be hurt on behalf of me.”

During an interview with Bleacher Report, Undertaker had the following to say about this situation:

“‘I can’t believe you didn’t mention Mick Foley.’ I’ve talked about Mick Foley until I’m blue in the gills.

I love Mick Foley. I think what we did will outlive the test of time as far as our angle. But then I can talk about Edge and so on. I haven’t talked to any of those guys.

I hope they didn’t get their feelings hurt, but it wasn’t about all that. It was about my journey and the things I’ve learned through those 30-plus years that I was trying to share and help people in their lives and thank the WWE Universe.

That’s what it was all about. If anyone was offended, I’m sorry.”
