Mick Foley thanks WWE for charting new course on WrestleMania 30


MICKsquaredMick Foley, famously upset over the direction that WWE was taking with what was shaping up to be an underwhelming WrestleMania 30, is back on board after last night’s move to tease Daniel Bryan being in the ‘Mania main event.

“With one outstanding Raw, you’ve got me, and millions of fans around the world, excited about the biggest showcase in our business, and I’m thrilled to be going,” Foley wrote on his Facebook blog today.

Foley, still under contract to WWE, also thanked the company for “allowing me to speak my mind without any private or public reprimand.”

“Yes, I’ll admit that attending the Knicks game in my pajamas, while officially representing the company, was a form of protest. Maybe not as blatant as smashing my TV, but a form of protest, nonetheless. But as my friend Brendon Burns, a brilliant comic from Australia, with an incredible mind for the wrestling business (who would love to write for you guys, by the way) put it – WWE’s recent shows have actually helped create one of the most fascinating, influential characters we’ve seen in wrestling in years: the fans,” Foley wrote.
