Mick Foley Talks Daniel Bryan Taking John Cena’s Role, Who’s The Funniest Wrestler, More

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was interviewed by Red Eye Chicago. Here are some highlights.

If he thinks WWE made the right decision by going to PG: “I really do. With the TV-14 there were a lot of sponsors the WWE couldn’t bring in because of the rating. I think it was frustrating when they were doing gigantic ratings and couldn’t draw the sponsors during the Attitude Era. They did great business during a horrible economic time and continue to draw adults to bring their children to watch the product.”

The funniest wrestler he knows: “Well some of the funniest guys backstage couldn’t translate that humor to the ring. There’s a fine line that guys use their humor for their character and guys that use their humor to define their character. I think every guy who has been successful has used humor to build their career. There was one moment in Milwaukee, where basically there were five guys in the Main Event match that could not control their upheavals of laughter. The Rock gave me an image the night before and when it was time to deliver my promo, I couldn’t get that out of my mind.”

If he thinks Daniel Bryan can take the same spot John Cena currently has: “He is just on fire right now. He is so much fun to watch. Right now he is the best combination wrestler since probably Edge was at his peak. Edge, at that time, was stealing the show whether he was wrestling or not. I love the fact that the two guys fighting for that top spot at SummerSlam is Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. I know Punk likes and respects Daniel but he will do his best each and every night. Stone Cold was on record saying he wanted to steal every show. He and I were good friends but we both stole the show at different times through the years. There has to be some unique marketing abilities for Daniel, and I have an idea or two I would like to pass WWE’s way. He would be one of the stars of my next children’s book if and when it gets published.”

    Of course Mick likes the PG change. All he does is pander to children, whether writing children’s books or dressing up as Santa…

    Now let’s ask someone who doesn’t completely adore little Cena marks.

      I want punk and DB to get pushed as much as the next guy. Butl smarks are never gonna be happy no matter what wwe do. So they might as well aim for the fans that will enjoy the show.
