As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley said at his comedy show Thursday night in Greenville, S.C. that he is hopeful that he will land a new role on WWE TV. Foley said that he wanted to manage Becky Lynch in her feud with Divas Champion Charlotte and Ric Flair.
Foley has since posted the following on his Facebook page:
HEARD ANY GOOD RUMORS?
During my Q&A in Greenville, SC on Thursday, I was asked a simple question: "If you could manage one person in WWE, who would it be?"
So, I gave a simple answer: "Becky Lynch", along with my explanation of why - and by the next morning, it had become a genuine news story. I really wasn't trying to make news; I was just answering a question honestly. But who knows – maybe the attention will lead to something in the future - and to quote my friend DDP, "That's not a bad thing; it's a good thing."
Maybe Manager isn't quite the right term - but it's obvious Becky needs someone to neutralize "Nature Boy" Ric Flair - and given my real life history with Ric, and my real life friendship with Becky, I think I could do a good job, if asked.
How would you feel about a possible Lynch/Foley collaboration? I think we would make a #Bexcellent duo.
