• Vince McMahon Was Talked Out Of Taking Crazy 1998 Bump That Was Meant For Mick Foley
On a 1998 episode of WWF RAW IS WAR, Cactus Jack (Mick Foley) & Chainsaw Charlie (Terry Funk) were inside a dumpster, that was shoved down the ramp by The New Age Outlaws, Billy Gunn & “The Road Dogg” Jesse James.
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, WWF Legend Mick Foley revealed that promoter Vince McMahon was talked out of taking the crazy dumpster bump himself earlier that day, when they all went over the script.
Here’s what the former WWF Champion had to say:
“Vince McMahon had to be talked out of taking the dumpster bump earlier in the day. He wanted to do it himself.
I was like ‘Vince, you own and run this company. We don’t know what’s going to happen. What happens if you’re badly hurt?’.
‘Mick, I would never want any of you to do something that I wouldn’t be willing to do.’
I pulled him over to the side, I was like ‘It’s my gimmick. You’ll kill my gimmick if you’re taking the same bumps’.
I’m glad he didn’t. Plus, if we’d seen how bad it looked, it didn’t look bad-bad, but it didn’t look good enough to merit the attention it received, where the show was essentially shut down almost, and people were crying as if they’d seen the last of us.
Sunny did a great job of conveying her concern. It just would have been better suited for something that looked more devastating.”
