Mick Foley explained that while he was on WWE, he had hurt his knee and was not 100% fit. So, Triple H worked with him and came up with a way to work around his weaknesses. He worked with his strengths too. Recounting a moment from the Rumble match, Mick Foley said that he was suplexing Triple H when a piece of wood hurt the former champion. However, Triple H kept going.
Mick Foley also shared his thoughts about WWE’s rival promotion – All Elite Wrestling. Mick Foley said that AEW had a fantastic roster of talent. However, Foley thought that the promotion did not have enough wrestlers working full-time for them. It meant that more mistakes were being made at live events.
Mick Foley said that during his time, wrestlers were aware if the angle wasn’t perfect. He said that the inexperience among the AEW wrestlers when it came to shooting angles and performing for a camera could be seen on each TV telecast. He added that in time, these characters would grow and perfect their showmanship. He also noted that the NXT roster had a slight advantage over AEW wrestlers because they were being trained to work full-time.
