During an appearance on "MLW Radio", WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley revealed that a planned storyline with Dean Ambrose didn't work out because he failed his medical testing. Foley in particular didn't do well with the imPACT testing portion of the medicals when it came to his short term memory.

An angle was shot among fans during the weekend of WrestleMania 28 in Miami that hit YouTube with Ambrose insulting Foley. Foley noted it turned out for the better with Ambrose to be involved with The Shield.
