Vince McMahon announced his resounding farewell to WWE last month and Triple H has been put in charge of the creative team. Vince's place was instead taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, who ushered in a new era.
The Stamford company is trying to reorganize itself after the changes in recent weeks and some interesting news has already been glimpsed. The Game has given its 'creative touch' to SummerSlam, thrilling fans. The weekly shows have also undergone some changes, including big returns and more attention to wrestling.
As if that were not enough, there was the highly anticipated return of Karrion Kross in the episode of SmackDown that aired last week. Other superstars like Dakota Kai and Dexter Lumis have also returned to the company after being released.
In the latest episode of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley revealed what he didn't like about Vince McMahon. To better explain the concept, Mick cited the 2016 rivalry between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair.
Mick Foley on Vince McMahon
“There was a part of Vince McMahon that really enjoyed making other people's dreams come true.
He loved to send fans into raptures” - began Mick Foley. "Sometimes, however, he got lost in a glass of water. I am reminded of the 2016 rivalry between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair. The Queen won the Raw Women's Championship in Boston, which is Sasha's hometown, while Banks took her title in Charlotte's hometown.
The opposite would have been better. I would have preferred to see Flair triumph over Charlotte and Sasha take revenge in Boston” - he explained. Mick also spoke of Becky Lynch: “Not everyone knows that Becky hasn't always been The Man.
She had to go through a difficult period before becoming the extraordinary champion we know today. She was down in the dumps and thought WWE was not the right place for her. I was close to her during that period and I gave her some advice”.
WWE legend Mick Foley recently spoke about The Undertaker's Hall of Fame speech from earlier this year. "I think it’s a lot to do about very little. Maybe it’s not nothing. The sad part for me is that people took exception with my daughter just innocently saying it was a great speech, but I wish he mentioned my dad."
Foley added: "Look, I never expect a mention. That’s my feeling – glass half-full guy. I never expect it, but it’s always nice when it happens. So, if somebody asked me, would I have liked him to mention my name? Yeah, sure, that would have been really nice."
