Foley Interested In Working WM, Backstage News On Punk & More
– As we’ve been reporting in recent weeks, it appears that hardcore legend Mick Foley is on his way back to WWE. According to a reliable source in WWE, Foley is interested in working a match at next year’s WrestleMania 28 pay-per-view from Miami. When Foley was granted his release from TNA, part of the agreement was that he could not appear on WWE TV until his contract would have expired, which is in September.
– WWE’s website has posted a series of in-character video interviews with John Cena and CM Punk to promote their upcoming WWE Title unification match at the SummerSlam pay-per-view.
In one of the videos, Punk talks about some of the changes he wants to see in WWE now that he’s decided to return to the company – including seeing people like Zack Ryder, Dolph Ziggler and the WWE divas getting more television time.
– Speaking of Punk, we’ve got some backstage news on his recent promo work. WWE management is breaking from the norm once again with Punk – giving him the basic framework for his promos – but not over-scripting them as they do with most of the WWE talent. Prior to Monday’s RAW, punk was practicing his return promo in the back and going over it with a few other wrestlers.
