On the latest "Foley Is Pod" podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley explained why he left Twitter:

"It would be easy to blame the atmosphere on Twitter. That was part of it, but since day one, I had trouble using Twitter in moderation, so it's mostly on me. I struggled with it. I think a lot of people do. Then you get to where you're spending hours a day just looking at everything on there, and as it became progressively more divisive, I began to feel like I was swimming in a pool full of turds. One turd, you can dodge that turd. Right? You can still enjoy the crystal clear water. But at a certain point, when being on Twitter just becomes an exercise in dodging turds, it's time to get out of the water and that's what I did."

Foley did not rule out returning to the platform at some point. He said, "I may come back on after the New Year. I may let you guys (AdFreeShows) run the account. I mean, I worked really hard to get up to 2 million. I really did, and it was a struggle over time. I posted stuff that I thought was interesting and sometimes funny, sometimes relevant, but it just feels like a filthy place for me to be and spend so much time. But maybe after the New Year, it'll come back under new ownership.”

Foley said he has reached out to Jungle Boy Jack Perry for his upcoming match at AEW Full Gear:
