Rolling Stone recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who was promoting his I Am Santa Claus, which is now available on Netflix. Below are some highlights:
If he at times wishes he could still wrestle:
"No, I exceeded my wildest expectations in wrestling and really feel good about the legacy I left behind. I find that I get most of the same things I loved about performing in the ring when I do my live shows around the world. I also find it when I don the red suit and become an ambassador for Santa [laughs]."
His current favorite wrestlers on the WWE roster:
"I like those really multidimensional characters like Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt. I've really seen Seth Rollins come on strong in the last few months. I actually love the Damien Mizdow character [laughs], he has become must-see TV. When I hear the words, 'Dad, Mizdow's on TV!' I move quicker than you would expect. I would be very remiss not to include Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro and some of the NXT guys on the rise like Sami Zayn."
His daughter Noelle training to become a wrestler:
"She was training and she loves it. I would like her to be a wrestling personality as opposed to a wrestler, just because as a dad I don't want to see my daughter go through the things that I did. The absolute worst way to ensure that somebody will not listen to you is to try to force them, so I'm going to support her in whatever she does. I'm just trying to find the best possible training for her."
