Host Jack E. Jones recently interviewed hardcore legend and former WWE Champion Mick Foley on a special edition of IYH Wrestling Radio. Mick answered several questions about his comedy stand-up routine and the current state of professional wrestling.
Highlights included the following:
* If someone is not familiar with your stand-up, how would you explain it?
"It is a wrestling-centered story-telling show, but it's accessible to non-fans as well. For wrestling fans, there's no need to worry about me embarrassing myself with set-ups and punch lines, and for non-fans, they'll have a much better time than they're expecting. If they're dragged against their will by a loved one, they will end up having a very good time."
* Would you agree that there is a lot of great new talent in the WWE right now?
"Oh yeah, I love the new talent. I think they've done a great job at the WWE. For all the flack they sometimes get for bringing in guys from the past to headline shows they've done this amazing job of making huge new stars from the developmental area. They come in and they really have faith and realize that building guys is a process that doesn't happen overnight."
* What did you think of the opening segment on the April 28th RAW featuring The Wyatt Family and the children's choir?
"It was wonderful. I know to some people it was a little freaky, but that was the point. It was something I believe wrestling fans will remember; it will go down as a great segment. I'd never seen anything like it. It was so good that I wish I had done it when I was Mankind. I was a big believer in juxtaposing innocence and creepiness, and sometimes I even did it in song. Whereas I sang 'Close To You' by the Carpenters in creepy fashion, he sings 'I've Got the Whole World in My Hands'. It's really effective; it's really a great character."
