- Mick Foley spoke with The Sun in the UK to promote his comedy tour. Here are some highlights:

His time in TNA:
“I cannot look back and say I did everything I wanted to do in TNA. I would have liked to have been considered a good investment that Dixie Carter made. I don’t think that she or I would think that the investment they put into me paid off for them. I think I could have contributed more and in a better way, but it did not work out that way.”

“I was very honest with (Head of Talent Relations) Terry Taylor, and told him I just kind of lost faith in the company and that I really shouldn’t be one of the guys that they centred their future around. The Network role was a great role for someone that really believed in the company. I wish they would have allowed me to leave a couple of weeks earlier or allowed me to stay another six or seven weeks, to make something out of that role.”

Wrestling again:
“I was really happy with that last match I had with Ric Flair. If that turns out to be my last match ever that would be a really good way to go. But if there is something big, if there is one or two matches I could have with WWE, to elevate one of the younger talents or does big business for the company, then I would certainly do my best to give people a memorable match.”

Not wanting to work on the WWE creative team:
“That’s the one thing that’s not on the table. I wouldn’t want that pressure and I couldn’t take that pressure. Having to come through with ideas every week. I think Brian Gewirtz and Michael Hayes deserve some type of special peace prizes for being able to it on a weekly basis. I couldn’t do it and wouldn’t do it.”

A role similar to Bret Hart’s where he appears on TV here and there:
“That would be a pretty neat role and that’s something that has been talked about. Back in 2004 Vince McMahon basically told me to consider WWE to be my playground, and that I could come and play any time I wanted to. It has been pointed out that I have a couple of days off on my tour when WWE just happens to be in the UK. So you never know. I may ask if I can play around for a little while.”

    @Jeff

    That’s talent that you can smell Foley through the tv.

  • Dave

    Foley has forgotten more about wrestling than most will ever even know.
    A man with his experience and personality has a massive amount to offer. Although I would prefer it if the majority of his input was backstage rather than in front of the camera.

    And smelliest, Rick. But for real, Foley seems like a good guy who’s never been about himself or out to screw anybody. And he’s got an excellent mind for the business. I hope he ends up with a Bret Hart-type role in WWE. Why the hell not? He can still give a match or two where you know he’ll bust his ass (literally) to put on a good show, and he’s a great promo guy. Give him a job, WWE.

    Mick should come back to the WWE as the mystery GM. The WWE shows a bunch of clips of the mystery GM’s actions some way and have CM Punk in the ring and it turns out it’s Mick Foley. I think Foley taking on Punk would be a great draw. Just an opinion.

    Foley has got to be the classiest guy in wrestling.

  • Nick Is Awsome

    What lost faith in tna HOW DARE YOU!!!….Speaking the truth in tna is blasphemy its not like he has lied iv been to 4 house shows and there were more people in Ihop accross the street than in the arena. I got to do the speacial meet and greets at 2 of them and the original talent was very nice but a few of the wwe castoffs like the pope acted like he was to big to be there and they had some non wrestlers dressed a curryman and suicide and some other masked failures so the meet n greets really sucked the matches were good but the energy in most of the matches was slow and sucked except eric young he is always great
