Mick Foley Interview – Why He Returned To WWE, Hall of Fame Rumors, His New Book

Mick Foley joined The Big Mosh and “The Chairman of the Board” Todd Vincent for an interview Monday Night Mayhem, which is now available for free download, exclusively on the WrestleView Radio Network (available here). Highlights from the interview are as follows:

How he wanted to have his latest book (“A Most Mizerable Christmas”) stand out from his previous releases: “It is a story based on my own son, who as a three-year old, told me he didn’t need anything from Santa, no matter how much I tried to prod him. When I approached the WWE about the idea of doing it, I knew the book market had changed a lot, and that there wasn’t going to be a lot of money in a children’s book. So, I made it very clear that it wasn’t about the money, that it was about trying to get a fun story with a positive message out there. I think we’ve accomplished that.”

Why he wanted to return to the WWE at this time in his life/career and if his on-air return lived up to his personal expectations: “Yeah, anything I do on the show is just a bonus, because I didn’t have any expectations as an on-air personality. That is one of the reasons why I really wanted to come back to the WWE, because there are so many ways to make contributions without being on the show. I’m happy for anything that comes my way.”

If he believes that a WWE Hall of Fame induction next April is closer to happening, after the recent focus given to him on WWE television: “I’m happy that the rumor I started has gotten this far. Yeah, I love the idea that people are talking about it. It is a big deal. If it were to happen at Madison Square Garden, it would be a bigger deal that if it happened anywhere else. It seems like a good idea, but I don’t call those shots. There are other guys that did better in that building than I did who should get the call as well. I would certainly accept it if it came my way, but I won’t be to bitterly disappointed if it doesn’t. I hope it does.”

Much more is contained in Mick Foley’s exclusive interview with Monday Night Mayhem, including his candid thoughts on how the WWE locker room has responded to “A Most Mizerable Christmas,” how he believes The Miz has shed the image of the “reality TV star,” getting the opportunity to work with CM Punk on the WWE stage, how their exchange of promos delivered for the audience, and why he decided to become part of the WWE’s “Be A Star” campaign.
