Mick Foley is a WWE Hall of Famer and he recently spoke about his argument with Jonathan Coachman. He spoke to Ranee Paquette and Miesha Tate on SiriusXM’s Thrown Down with Renee & Miesha. He was there to talk about the 20th anniversary of Randy Orton’s WWE debut.
“As long as I’ve known Jonathan Coachman, I only had one argument,” Foley said. “That was when he was maligning the good name of Stacy Keibler. Stacy didn’t want to come back [to WWE], she wanted to do other things.
So I cut what we in the trade call a promo on Coach about how, unlike those guys, the women didn’t have their travel paid, they didn’t get their rental cars or hotels paid for. “They were expected to be great ambassadors of the company.
They were expected to look good at all times, traveling the globe. And in the end, after taxes, they’re not making – I just didn’t think it was in keeping with a Superstar should be making”.

Mick Foley then spoke about Bret Hart joining WWE.
Mick tweeted FTR members after it was reported that Bret will join AEW and then manage FTR. It was speculated that AEW would sign him. “First of all, feel free to spread rumors about AEW being really interested in me. Dax and Wheeler are talking it up”.
Mick joked. “It worked out so well for Bret. I think there’s a handful of guys they don’t want to see in enemy territory. They’ve taken on some major losses, so I thought, ‘hey, I may as well dangle my line out there and see if I can land one of those quiet, lucrative deals”.
Mick also praised legendary British wrestler, William Regal. Regal worked at NXT General Manager for a very long time. William Regal recently joined AEW and manages Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson. He was extremely surprised when he found out that the WWE actually let him go.
“He was such a great talent – still remains a great talent,” Foley said. “When I saw that he was gone from NXT, man, that was a head-scratcher, for sure”. Mick Foley is known for taking extremely risky bumps throughout his career.
He is well-known for some of his spots. Many people still believe that he is the best hardcore wrestler that WWE has ever produced.
