Mick Foley On If Chris Jericho Spot At HOF Was Planned, CM Punk's Involvement

Highlights from Foley's induction will air tonight on the USA Network at 10pm ET. During last Saturday's ceremony, Foley noted how he had never pinned Chris Jericho. Jericho made his way onto the stage, and Foley dropped an elbow on him as CM Punk counted three. It was a great moment that the crowd went nuts for. I spoke with Foley yesterday, and asked him if the elbow drop on Jericho would be the last time we'd see him in action.
"No more matches," Foley said. "I had to hesitate before even dropping that elbow on Jericho. He was probably hurting in the morning 'cause I thought, 'you know what? I'm not going to take any of this impact, it's all going on Chris.'"
Foley also noted that the spot wasn't something that they had planned beforehand.
"It came as a complete surprise to me, as did CM Punk coming out doing the very un-bad-guy thing with doing the three count and hugging me on stage. For that one night, there are no good guys and bad guys."
