WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley did not attend the 30th Anniversary Monday Night Raw. Several prominent names have helped transform the red brand into an iconic show over the years, including Mick, who was a fan favorite during the Attitude Era.
The former WWE Champion used his official Facebook profile to explain why he declined the offer to participate in Raw 30: "So many people asked me why I wasn't present at the 30th anniversary of Raw. WWE invited me to participate, but I had to decline due to my busy schedule.
Had I traveled to Philadelphia for the show - that would have made it 32 straight days away from home. I'm working on a new project, which is a lot of fun but requires a lot of travelling. As soon as I had a couple of days off, I preferred to spend them with my wife and children."
Mick Foley is a true legend
Mick Foley has been a key contributor to the success of Monday Night Raw, having taken part in several memorable feuds throughout his career.
His rivalries with The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin have transcended wrestling, as well as bringing so many people closer to this business. In the latest edition of his podcast, Foley spoke about the imminent return of Cody Rhodes: “He received a myriad of criticisms when he chose to leave WWE in 2016.
People should admit that it was a correct decision. Rhodes was convinced he could do more and the facts proved him right. Not everyone would have had that courage. Cody has managed to fully express his talent by performing in contexts that do not enjoy the same following as WWE.
The Stamford federation is no longer the destination to which all the talents in the sector aspire. In part it influenced the birth of AEW, which is doing a great job ". WWE is finalizing the final details ahead of the Royal Rumble, scheduled for Saturday, January 28 in San Antonio.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has opened up about his relationship with Vince Mcmahon and what led to its decline. “And more importantly, I wouldn’t have become like the boy who cried wolf to Mr McMahon. And I don’t think my relationship with… I used to call him Vince.
You know, I called him Vince and now I refer to him as Mr McMahon, even when I see him. ‘Hello, Mr. McMahon.’ So it hurt that relationship, cost me a lot of money and would have been a good match to have on a great WrestleMania”.
