​Mick Foley Discusses The New Talent In WWE & More


In an interview with In Your Head Radio, Mick Foley spoke about
the current crop of young talent in the WWE. Here are highlights:

On his stand-up routine: “It is a
wrestling-centered story-telling show, but it’s accessible to non-fans as well.
For wrestling fans, there’s no need to worry about me embarrassing myself with
set-ups and punch lines, and for non-fans, they’ll have a much better time than
they’re expecting. If they’re dragged against their will by a loved one, they
will end up having a very good time.”

On the talent in WWE: “Oh yeah, I love the new
talent. I think they’ve done a great job at the WWE. For all the flack they
sometimes get for bringing in guys from the past to headline shows they’ve done
this amazing job of making huge new stars from the developmental area. They come
in and they really have faith and realize that building guys is a process that
doesn’t happen overnight.”

On the opening segment of the April 28 RAW featuring The
Wyatt Family and the children’s choir:
“It was wonderful. I know to
some people it was a little freaky, but that was the point. It was something I
believe wrestling fans will remember; it will go down as a great segment. I’d
never seen anything like it. It was so good that I wish I had done it when I was
Mankind. I was a big believer in juxtaposing innocence and creepiness, and
sometimes I even did it in song. Whereas I sang ‘Close To You’ by the Carpenters
in creepy fashion, he sings ‘I’ve Got the Whole World in My Hands’. It’s really
effective; it’s really a great character.”
