Mick Foley on Johan Hill: The guys hated working with him

Mick Foley talked about various topics in his "Foley Is Pod" podcast. One of the topics was Jonah Hill, who was the guest GM for RAW. However, his guest appearance was never aired. Foley talked about the reasons for that. “He’s not a wrestling fan.

There was a reason why Jonah Hill was advertised as the guest GM and it never aired. The guys hated working with him. There were some like Hugh Jackman … The Muppets, they loved it. Almost everyone was a good experience.

Jonah Hill was one that didn’t even make the air because he apparently just didn’t want to be there and it showed. I think somebody saw him mouthing to his agent, ‘Get me out of here.’”- Foley said, as quoted by pwmania.com

Road Dogg on Johan Hill

Road Dogg talked about this very thing a few months ago on his podcast.

Hill didn't show up when needed, and fans were angry about that. “I’ll give you an example of a real crappy interaction with a celebrity. Jonah Hill. He came to promote something at Madison Square Garden and they ended up getting hot at him and just said, ‘We’re not doing it.

Screw it.’ I think it was Monday Night Raw and Jonah Hill was supposed to be there to promote something. I don’t know if there was a creative difference. I just know a lot of people talked bad about him after it didn’t happen.

So yeah, that’s an example of one that didn’t work well and I also don’t even remember the vehicle he was trying to promote, so maybe it wasn’t so great”. Jonah Hill is a specific character of a man and an interesting person. It is obvious that some are dissatisfied with him and his approach, but that is his way.
