Mick Foley Talks Backstage Response To His Return, 'Mania, Wanting RAW GM Role
Source: Silver VisionSilver Vision has an interview with Mick Foley promoting his Stand Up Comedy Tour this month. Here are some highlights from the interview:
What it was like returning to WWE: "Returning to Raw was very nice - like returning home after a few years away. But my first WWE shows back were off televsion, in Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle. Dublin was the first, and it was a surprise to everyone, even the WWE Superstars and Divas. Everyone did a double-take, and said, 'oh, it's you' and walked away unenthusiastically. Actually, it was a happy scene - plenty of hugs to go around!"
If there is one more WrestleMania match in him: "I just don't think I've got another great Wrestlemania match left in me. I mean, I could always be IN a match, but i think my days at or near the top of the card are behind me. But the Rumble showed that there might be a market for a Santino/Foley team...maybe a 'Crouching Cobra, Hidden Socko' type of thing."
If he would like to the new RAW GM: "I would love to be the GM of Raw. Talk about a dream job. I really wish I'd stayed on long-term when I had that gig in 2000. I'm not sure what my first move would be, but there are so many good young Superstars I could play off of. I still get fans asking me about the suff I did with Edge and Christian when I was commissioner. I would love to create that type of chemistry with some of the current Superstars..and Divas. There is already a vague sexual tension between me and the Bellas backstage - so thick you can cut it with a knife!"
