Mick Foley Discusses Why He Never Joined WWE or IMPACT Wrestling's Creative Teams

Mick Foley Discusses Why He Never Joined WWE or IMPACT Wrestling's Creative Teams

While Mick Foley is often hailed as a trailblazing creative force in the world of wrestling, he has never formally joined the creative team of any major wrestling organization.

In a recent installment of Foley is Pod, the WWE Hall of Famer delved into why he never took on a more prominent role in the creative departments of WWE or IMPACT Wrestling.

Foley shared his insights, stating,

“With WWE, I didn’t — Clint Eastwood said in Magnum Force, ‘A man’s got to know his limitations,’ and my limitations would include not spending any extraordinary amount of time with Mr. McMahon. I love Vince, but I don’t think I could operate. He has a certain way of motivating people, and like Al Snow said on Wrestlers, ‘A pat on the back is two feet higher than a kick in the ass.’ I always responded better to the pat on the back, and Vince is more of a kick in the ass type of guy.”

On the subject of IMPACT Wrestling, Foley conveyed some regrets, remarking,

“I do regret that I did not get more involved with TNA on the creative end. Yeah, I should have. I did used to have some good ideas storyline-wise. I don’t think I’ve had one in a very long time though. So that would be the reason. My son would just come up — when he worked for the WWE and especially when he worked really closely with the talent NXT on their promos, he could just come up with idea after idea, but I stopped having those ideas a while ago.”
