Here is the latest Mick Foley blog from his Facebook page:
“No, this is just me taking the time to point out that Al was a uniquely
talented, underutilzed wrestler and entertainer who has quietly amassed a
very impressive legacy in the wrestling business.
I sincerely believe that ?#?WWE? missed the boat on Al when he was the lead trainer of ?#?ToughEnough?. On a show that extebded
past the traditional wrestling demographic, Al Snow was a caring,
smart, funny trainer/coach/father figure – who could clearly handle
himself in the ring. If the decision had been made to truly push him as
an in-ring talent, I think he could have become a mainstream star and a
great ambassador for the business.
That’s all; I don’t want to
overdo it. Maybe I’l regret writing this – since, as they say, once it’s
out there on social media, it’s there forever. Maybe writing “In Praise
of Al Snow” will haunt me for the rest of my days. But Al is a great
guy, a great friend, and a credit to the business – and I thought this
post might serve as a reminder of his contributions.”
