-- Josh Stewart of ESPN recently interviewed Mick Foley, here are some highlights from the interview:
Foley on TNA's profitability: "I was never close enough to know anything more than you guys in the media would know. I do think they had a really profitable year in 2009, and then I heard they may have overspent. But Bob Carter said something very prophetic to Dusty Rhodes when I asked Dusty about the status of the company. He said, 'Until I close the doors, it's not a loss, it's an investment.' So, I'm glad they're around, I really wish them the very best, it was a very good place for me to go for a few years. I didn't see eye-to-eye with them on a lot of things, but I certainly enjoyed most of my time there."
Foley's main complaint about TNA: "My main criticism of theirs is one that I had all along and that I expressed freely with the company, that they tried to pack too many things in every show. And at the end of the show it's really hard for fans to see anything as really important."
When he will work for WWE again: "I'm almost sure that we'll be working in some respect fairly soon. It's a really good company with a really large infrastructure that offers ways for guys like me to help out that aren't related to helping out on the TV shows."
What his role would be in WWE: "There could be several roles. I have to do some thinking about how involved I want to get, how many days away I want to spend and whether I want my involvement to be completely off-screen. But I'm excited about working with WWE in the near future."
