Mick Foley On Why He's A 'Stephanie McMahon Guy'

Mick Foley has a new Facebook blog where he praises Stephanie McMahon. Below is part of what he wrote:

I'M A STEPHANIE McMAHON GUY

Let me get the little negatives out of the way first - so I don't contradict statements I've made in the past. Yes, I do think the casual or investor can get confused when real-life authority figures play abusive authority figures on air. I do wish there was an authority figure, a new GM or Commisioner (no, not me, but I'll have a few suggestions for candidates in a later post) to check and balance The Authority.

But with that being said, I'm proud to say that I'm a Stepanie McMahon guy. Seriously. I am. Stephanie can be such a mesmerizing presense on WWE Monday Night Raw and #Smackdown . Her recent interactions with Brie Bella - WWE Universe have been intense and exciting - and as a long time #DivaBeliever, I love the idea of ending #RAW with the ladies.

I met Stephanie 16 years ago - only minutes after the infamous Cell match, in Pittsburgh, in June, 1998, when I'd been told that a WWE employee and good friend had just learned of the loss of a loved one. I gave my friend a hug, and out of the corner of my eye, saw Stephanie McMahon - WWE for the first time. I gave the young McMahon a smile and then departed to participate in the most awkward run-in/limp-in/stumble in sports entertainment history.

It was 14 years ago that I was the first recipient of a Stephanie on-air slap. I still remember her soaking up everything around her like a sponge; looking at me as I said, "you can slap me as hard as you can - just not on the jaw" as if they were the wisest words in the world. Ms McMahon would go on to slap dozens...and dozens more over the next 14 years - as hard as she could, but hopefully never on the jaw. But hopefully, she has a special memory of the guy she smacked first.
