Bully Ray Praises WWE RAW Segment, Mick Foley Recalls ‘I Quit’ Match With The Rock



WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently took to his Facebook page to discuss his infamous “I Quit” match with The Rock at the 1999 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. The WWE Hall of Famer said,

“Last week, I had a chance to watch my infamous #IQuit match with Dwayne The Rock Johnson in its entirety for the first time in many years – probably 20. My main take away is – while acknowledging the finish with the multiple chair shots was excessive – the rest of the match was really good, and very enjoyable. There was a really nice combination of hard-hitting action and humor, with the Rock’s work on the mic eliciting genuine laughs from the fans I watched the match back with. I have to say, our in-ring chemistry was always so good!

While watching the match, I noticed a possible missed opportunity for a very unique and creative finish… not that the finish that aired wasn’t unique and creative, but it was a tad (or more than a tad) on the brutal side. Mere seconds before The Rock puts the microphone to my mouth, HE actually DOES say the words, “I Quit”….

I think the actual quote was “You will say I Quit.” No one ever said exactly how, or in what context you have to say “I Quit”… Right there among the crowd last week, I thought what an amazing and ridiculous finish that would’ve been with The Rock losing the match to an unconscious opponent.

Just a little something to think about as we celebrate that infamous match that took place 25 years ago today…”

In other news, Bully Ray recently took to the “Busted Open Radio” podcast to share his thoughts on the opening segment on RAW featuring World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins addressing his MCL tear and later being confronted by WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER. He said,

“The thing that I liked best about the GUNTHER-Seth Rollins face-to-face was [that] GUNTHER came out of that as a credible, possible Royal Rumble winner because we’ve been talking about Cody [Rhodes] and [CM] Punk, Cody and Punk, Cody and Punk winning the Royal Rumble. GUNTHER’s name is now in the mix. And very strong. He was almost using babyface verbiage, guaranteeing victory.”
