Mick Foley Outlines Reason For Not Considering Backstage Role

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently outlined the reason for not accepting backstage roles in the company. He had taken up the role of Commissioner back in 2000. He also served as the General Manager of Monday Night RAW from 2016 to 2017. He recently opened up on not considering a backstage role in the company.

Mick Foley explains

The WWE Hall of Famer was asked on the latest edition of the Foley is Pod podcast if he had ever considered working behind the scenes as a real talent manager or commissioner for the company.

The hardcore legend said that he had not. He claimed that although he lacked a business mindset, he might have aimed to enhance characters by playing the good guy and assisting superstars with their promos.

‘No. I don’t have the head for business and the attention to details. I did as far as character went. Maybe I could have been a good guy to help with promos,” Foley said.

The three-time world champion continued by saying that when he spoke with John Laurinaitis following his return from TNA (now IMPACT Wrestling), he was given several options for the roles he wanted to play in WWE. He claimed that he never wanted to be an agent and that no one had ever requested him to be a consultant.

“When John Laurinaitis and I talked when I came back from TNA, it was almost like opening up a menu and asking me what I wanted to order. I could host shows. I could come back occasionally. I could be an agent. Pretty much anything I wanted and I just thought, I can’t be an agent. I can’t do that. I would love to have been offered the idea to be a consultant,” added Foley.
