Foley On Last Night’s Royal Rumble Appearance, Working A WrestleMania Match

Mick Foley appeared on Wrestling Voice Radio with Duane Doogan. Highlights from the interview are as follows:

His performance at the Royal Rumble: “I don’t think it was until I got back to the hotel that I realized, just how many things had gone on in the little time I was out there, maybe four or five minutes but even in those four minutes, you got that entrance, that’s what I was most nervous about, ‘How the heck am I going to run out to the ring?’, the interaction with great young wrestlers like Primo and the thing with Ricardo (Rodriguez) that I thought was really funny, the stuff with Santino and the stuff with Miz and Cody (Rhodes) who were both the work horses of the Royal Rumble, so when I put it all together I realize ‘wow, there was a lot going on in that time period’, and I was minutes away from sucking all the oxygen out of the building so whoever won the Rumble would be doing so in front of an unconscious crowd.”

The possibility of wrestling someone like Cody Rhodes or Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania: “It would be nice if the people who made those decisions thought I was capable of that, I really would have to be in good shape and I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it, I’m not gonna say I’ll never do a match again but if people want to see me and Santino as a tag team or me and Zack Ryder as a tag team at a pay-per-view I would at least think about it because I think people would enjoy it and it wouldn’t carry the pressure.

“I’m not (wrestling a big match) but I’d like to be in shape for it and hope that it would be something that could really add to a long-term angle or help one of those moments that gets people to the next level, I don’t think it’s the great matches so much as the personal issue that reaches a conclusion in a match that helps somebody get to that level and I think I could a nice step for somebody.”

    i would like to see Foley face Rhodes, Ziggler, barrett or Miz at mania.

    I suppose it would depend on the length of the match but yeah Foley would need to get in shape abit more.

    As for his participation last night he has still got it. and the thing between Mr Socko and the Cobra was so stupid but funny. Foley out there was the best bit of the rumble for me

    Nobody wants to see Miz vs. anybody… period. Get over it. And Foley doesn’t have a lot of time to get in shape for ‘Mania so he’d better be on a treadmill from now until April, because he was very out of shape last night. And he can still go for a guy his age, and when motivated. So drop about 25-30lbs and he should be ok. I could see Foley vs. Rhodes a la Foley vs. Orton @ Backlash 2004. With Foley putting Cody over. Funny too, because that was for the IC title as well.

    Please let us have some interaction with Kane and Cena it’s clearly he will be a heel by Wrestlemania but if he embraced the hate last night lets see evidence.

    Mick Foley vs. “The Most Must See Champion OF ALL TIME!!!!!” The Miz at WM 28!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    Mankind vs Undertaker at WM!

  • Effmenow

    I honestly believe that Mick Foley could have one last great match if planned well and the opponent was the right guy for this match.


    Foley, I understand that you are being humble BUT we want to see the beast that was Mankind come back for one more night in match of significance against some one like Ziggler.

    We know you have it in you!!!!!!

    Personally I’d like to see Foley VS The Miz at Mania in a hardcore match.
