“I’m just catching up on the #TotalDivas episodes I missed while I was out in Western Canada. How about the new look for Nattie ? Sometimes, when wrestlers are as consistently good as Nattie, they tend to get taken for granted. Maybe this bold new look will remind #WWE of the great wrestler and person they’ve had in their midst all this time.”
Foley also commented on Dean Ambrose using the double-arm DDT on John Cena at the end of Monday’s RAW:
“I’ve been asked so many times since WWE Monday Night Raw – literally dozens…and dozens of times – how I feel about Dean Ambrose using the Mick Foley #DoubleArmDDT at the conclusion of the show.
Easy answer: I love it! Besides, it’s not exactly MY DDT, anyway, I saw a young Kenta Kobashi (who went on to become an all-time great in our business) using it on a 1991 tour doe All-Japan wrestling, and thought “I can pull that off!” And so I did. I wish Dean nothing but the best with it, and hope it’s a regular part of his arsenal on his rocket-ride to the top of WWE.
I’m flattered any time I see a WWE Superstar or Diva borrow anything from the Foley library – be it a move, a phrase, or just the idea of giving fans their money’s worth each time they step into the ring.”
Mark Henry recently spoke to Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald. Here are some highlights;
Working with Rusev:
“He is respectful. He is a really good listener. He is going to be a guy who holds true for the next 10 or 15 years. Hopefully, his body holds up, and he doesn’t have as many injuries as I did. I know what talent looks like and who has got it. Those are the people I want to work with and against. I’m happy to be able to say I had a hand in making some moments for him in his career.”
NXT star Jason Jordan:
“Jason Jordan is one of the ones who are next. He is very athletic. I’m hoping to see more of him in the near future. Athletic, smart, college graduate and understands you have to wait your turn. Ambitious. Not sitting back and collecting checks. I’m happy to know him and know the future is going to be bright.”
Wanting to be a WWE ambassador over a traveling producer when he retires:
“I don’t want to be on the road like that because I have small kids. I would like to do more international marketing and urban outreach community involvement. I want to try to develop the brand internationally whenever we open new places abroad. I think that would be more where my skill set would be used better.”
