Mick Foley commented on Drew McIntyre and his second run. “There’s some people who make it a point to go back, if not, reinvent themselves, then to improve themselves. It’s almost like the Drew McIntyre blueprint.
‘Yes, I am gonna do some shows where I take advantage of the name I had, but I am going to improve myself, come back as a better Drew McIntyre.’”- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com Foley also mentioned the Twitter message.
“I don’t know if I’ve told this story, but I think this deserves to be said. He sent me a text, probably a direct message on Twitter. He goes, ‘I know we don’t know each other that well, but your opinion means a lot to me.
I’m trying something new, I just did this.’ I don’t know if he used the word reinvent, and I watched his comeback to Insane Championship Wrestling, ICW, and the first thing I did was text Hunter, who I don’t text too often, and I said, ‘You need to take a look at Drew McIntyre.’ I said, ‘I know he just left, but it’s almost like he’s a different human being.’”
WWE and AEW
WWE and AEW are big competition to each other.
Foley commented on their relationship. He believes that WWE wants to deny the influence that AEW currently has. “When people say ‘are you your WWE loyalist?’ I said, first and foremost, I’m for the boys.
And when I say boys, I mean collectively, the men and the women I want what’s best for the talent and ultimately, I do believe that what’s best for the talent is best for the company. So, I love WWE, but I love the fact that there’s a strong competition. If they’re claiming it’s not competition, they’re fooling themselves”.
