Dewey Foley, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently parted ways with WWE as per the reports, a couple of months before Vince McMahon’s scandal. He served the company as part of the creative team.
Dewey Foley decides to leave WWE
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Foley exited the promotion in April of this year. Johnson added that he was not cut and left on his own will. Dewey most recently served as a writer for NXT. He also appeared on the short-lived reality TV show Holy Foley on the WWE Network.
Since the news broke, Dewey has responded on social media. Joel Pearl of Fightful noted that he did a lot for NXT and developmental, and Foley responded with the following:
“Thank you. I put my freaking heart into NXT/the PC. I learned so much about myself there. Definitely the most rewarding and gratifying time I had there!”
It has been also noted that Dewey was the lead writer of 205 Live at one point in his tenure with the company. 205 Live aired its final episode on February 11th and was replaced by Level Up the following week. Mick Foley’s son released a statement on 205 Live following its cancellation:
“It’s the end of an era. 205 Live was special to me. How do we create the most with a limited roster & MANY restrictions? The Cruisers rocked it weekly, especially during the pandemic. I’m forever indebted to all talents who crossed paths with because of it. Thank you”.
He also had some on-screen appearances in some amusing segments with The New Day’s Kofi Kingston and The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro). We will now have to wait and see what is next for Foley.
