WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently spoke with Not Sam Wrestling (via Wrestling Inc) about his WWE return earlier this year to be the special guest referee for the Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman Strowman Hell in a Cell match. Here are the highlights.
How he ruined the match:
““You’re talking about a conduit who wasn’t even a part of the match, but his character was so strong that I was able to kind of segway from him and his singing to building a match and making that referee position as important as possible. “Let’s just disregard the fact that I did count to three during the match. It’s a skill man! There was so much speed going on and I couldn’t stop it and it’s like, I just ruined the match.”
Why he came back:
“I did come back with an intent and purpose and that was the reason why months earlier I had turned down the invitation to be back on Raw 25,” said Foley. “Because I thought, let me come back when there is some substance to it, so I am glad that I did.”
