Mick Foley recently sat down with Inside the Ropes for an interview. During the discussion, Foley discussed being one of “the Fiend” Bray Wyatt’s first victims and passing on the Mandible Claw to him.
“I felt like when those lights went out and he put me down with my own hold that we had – that he more than I had done something special but I had been part of it,” Foley said regarding Wyatt using the Mandible Claw on him.
Foley also discussed the difference between Wyatt’s current Fiend character and the previous Wyatt character.
“My one knock on the old Bray Wyatt character was that the character didn’t shift gears when it needed to, it kind of went in circles. They were majestic circles but sometimes you need to kick it in and go into overdrive and I think he’s done that with this – I know he’s done it because he’ll transform in front of our eyes like you said a Jeckyl and Hide and the biggest compliment I can give a performer of the current day is that I put down whatever I’m doing when he’s on.”
“He’s a really mesmerizing performer and he’s got the mandible claw now,” Foley continued.
