WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News to promote his WrestleMania Dream Raffle for RAINN. Here are the highlights.
Are you going to be at WrestleMania either as an observer or possibly as a part of the show?
I’ll definitely be at the show. I hear rumors that I’ll be part of the show. Not to lower anybody’s expectations but technically the only year I wasn’t part of the show was in 2011. I’ve been back for three Manias and last year I accompanied our winners to the show. In 2012 I did a thing with Santino and the guys with Deadliest Catch. In 2013, I was inducted into the Hall of Fame, which is a pretty big deal to go out there and receive the acknowledgments from all those people. In ’14 I was part of the announce team, the pre- and post- announce team. I guess I’m playing a little role. I’m not exactly sure what it is, though.
What was your reaction when you watched “Raw” a few weeks ago and the music hits and out comes Shane McMahon?
I had said from time to time it would be great to see Shane McMahon back, but I had no idea if that would ever happen. I knew Shane would get a good reaction. I didn’t know he would get that kind of reaction. That was amazing. For the story lines, someone said. “Didn’t they reveal that too quickly?” Maybe, maybe they could have played it out a little bit. I think the interaction between the McMahons is great. The idea of Shane-O-Mac possibly doing something death-defying inside or on top of that cell is definitely there and it’s a great story line. I don’t know how they proceed with it but I think given their track record at WrestleMania the past few years, you have to give them some freedom to tell that story.
