- Mick Foley wrote the following on his Facebook page about Teddy Long’s WWE departure:
“A LONG RUN FOR TEDDY
Thank you Teddy Long. Thank you for being so good, for so long, at so many things. I’ve known Teddy for 25 years. He was a very good referree, and an even better heel referee before I arrived in WCW in 1989. He was an excellent heel manager….and a pretty good babyface manager too – no easy feat in the world of sports-entertainment. I enjoyed his color commentary, and was inpired by his motivational speaking and charitable work.
Thank you WWE for the long run you gave Teddy – as a referree, and long-running GM of Smackdown. I know all good things must eventually come to an end, and Teddy Long’s run in WWE was a very good thing. I hope he’ll be brought back for Wrestlemanias and will lend his expertise to some projects with the company dpwn the road. A good man, a consumate professional, a friend.
Let me know about your favorite Teddy Long memory…without using the phrase “tag-team match”…just kidding; that would be almost impossible. But let’s see if some of you more seasoned fans can dig deep and hit us with a blast from Teddy’s long and distinguished career.”
