• WWF Legend Told Vince McMahon To Cancel His Heel Turn In 1999
During his appearance on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network, WWF Legend Mick Foley revealed that Vince McMahon wanted to break up The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection and have him turn heel on The Rock.
However, Foley believed that his tag team with The Rock was working out really well and a heel turn wasn’t needed.
Here’s what he said:
“I remember calling Vince and saying, ‘I don’t wanna do this heel turn. Vince, I feel like people are really responding’.
I realized that I’m coming slowly but surely to an end, my knees are giving me trouble. It’s real, people feel it on a definite basis, and that’s part of the reason I think why the character still resonates.
Because we didn’t do the turn, it allowed people to have those great memories of The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection.
Fans come up to me, ‘You guys were the greatest tag team in history,’ and I’ll say, ‘Can you name one match we had?’ They can’t but they do remember how we made them feel.”
