Mick Foley Headed To TNA Wrestling?, SD!, & More News
By Ryan Clark | August 13, 2008
The Sun out of the UK is reporting a close friend of Mick Foley has informed them that the hardcore icon is headed to TNA Wrestling when his WWE contract expires on September 1st. Foley's friend told the Sun, "Mick's body cannot handle a full time schedule, even in TNA. But he's hell bent on doing everything he can to further his legacy and put them on the map. The friend added, "Mick's plan is to wrestle select dates, like Sting currently does. He feels he will legitimately make a big difference in the way TNA Wrestling is perceived by the public!" Back in 2005, Foley was in talks with TNA and was very close to signing with the company before he wound up back in WWE. He did not work this week's SmackDown! tapings. Note from Ryan Clark: The source in TNA that I talked with today claims there has been no talks between the two sides so far. This doesn't mean it won't happen because I'm sure it likely will if he leaves WWE. Mick is also a huge fan of the ROH product as well.
Last week's edition of SmackDown took a plunge in the ratings, scoring a lackluster 2.0 figure. This was the least watched non-holiday SmackDown of 2008.
