I recently interviewed Mick Foley ahead of his appearance at Starrcast on Saturday. Here are some highlights from the conversation:
Foley on if he sees similarities between himself and Bray Wyatt: “I do. The willingness to go from one extreme to another like the gooey, zooey of the Firefly Fun House and willing to embrace that nerdiness which then amplifies the evil nature of the Fiend character.”
Foley on whether if he experienced any pushback from WWE for doing Starrcast: “I didn’t experience any pushback (laughs). No one suggested I don’t do it. That doesn’t necessarily mean people are happy about me doing it. I agreed to do it. There was no AEW television deal, and WWE hadn’t scheduled their television show. Plenty of WWE Hall of Famers had done it before me. So I didn’t see it as that big of a deal.”
