I have been against Mick Foley returning because of reasons like tonight. Mick made his living off taking beatings and when you book him to be John Cena’s cheerleader, it just looks embarrassing.
I was insulted that WWE took the fans' love for Mick Foley and used it against them in another attempt to brainwash the masses into adoring John Cena.
We aren’t allowed to boo John Cena because Mick Foley thinks he deserves more respect?
I thought Foley was better than that, but I guess I was wrong. I do not need to be lectured from a man well past his prime on who I should cheer for.
The segment involving Mick Foley and John Cena made the Michael Cole Challenge look like the main event of WrestleMania XII.
Never have I been so completely disgusted by WWE Creative than I was tonight when I was forced to watch Foley sell out and tell the fans that they should not boo John Cena.
I’m not sure if the WWE overestimated Mick Foley’s presence or not. I know a lot of people love Foley, and I do respect him, but when I see him today, it just feels out of place. Foley was a huge part of the “Attitude Era,” but he just seems outdated in today’s WWE.
Thankfully, the Rock came out and saved us all from watching more of Mick Foley humiliate himself. I still do not know if that was planned or if the segment was bombing so badly that someone told the Rock to just go out there and end it.
A lot of fans hear “Mick Foley” and it conjures up memories of great matches and promos from the old days. I am the kind of fan that wants to see Foley’s legacy stay intact. Tonight just felt wrong, and I would rather never see Mick Foley again than have him tarnish his legacy.
I may be overreacting, but if I want to see the old Mick Foley, then I will pop in a DVD.
