Mick Foley Talks TNA But Continues His Obsession with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon

Tim ListAnalyst INovember 8, 2008

In an interview with Alex Marvez of the Scripps-Howard News Service, Mick Foley talked a little TNA but a lot about WWE Chairman Vince McMahon (again).

In the article, which can be read in its entirety here (http://www.scrippsnews.com/node/37764), Foley says:

"An announcer needs to feel like what he's saying is important. When I say I was met with a profound feeling of emptiness following every 'Smackdown' taping, I am not being overdramatic. I really felt it was the least important thing I've ever done in wrestling. I just think that Vince's over-producing strips the fun and feeling of accomplishment from it.

"There were times when I barely knew he was there, when he was really easy to work with and the things he said were really helpful. But over the course of time, I felt like I was getting gradually less effective in the role. I didn't want fans to realize that I was getting to the point of phoning it in and no longer caring."
