Mick Foley On Possibly Returning To WWE As GM, His Recent RAW Appearance

The following are highlights of a new Chicago Now interview with WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley:

A few weeks ago you attended WWE to promote the Hell in a Cell PPV. What are the feelings for you after all these years standing behind a curtain right before you approach thousands of people?

This was a big role for me and the segment was a big stepping-stone for the PPV. I was nervous which is healthy. I wouldn’t have gotten nervous if I was just doing a guess spot on the show, but this was different. WWE realizes now that I can be called upon to add to their shows in an important manner.

The WWE Network hasn’t had the launch that the company would have liked but it still has plenty of content you can’t find anywhere else. What is the Network like for you when you go watch old matches or PPV’s you participated in?

Well I think it’s a great tool for me personality as it introduces a whole new generation of fans to who I was. They can discover my multiple characters over the years and it’s great to see.

When I come back to WWE guys are coming up to me asking about their matches and it’s very humbling. I think every wrestler needs to be a student of the game and continue to evolve.

I don’t think it’s a bad idea to look back at things that worked 20 years ago and use them in their character or setting today. I have no problem someone borrowing from the Mick Foley library.

The WWE General Manager spot on Raw or Smackdown has always been a big hit or miss. You mentioned in the past that you would be interested in that role again if it should come across your desk. Do you think this “position” has gone stale or is it something that can be rejuvenated?

I think their needs to be a balance of power. I think on screen the Authority has had too much power for too long and it’s been a little heel heavy.

I would hope I am on that short list of candidates for that type of role if it does arise. And if it was brought forth to me, I think I would do it. And with my personality I think I can bring a fresh attitude towards that “higher power”.
