In other Mick Foley news, HoboTrashcan.com has published an extensive interview with the author/wrestler. Some interesting excerpts:

Are there any long-term plans for you at this point?
I think I’ve got a tremendous idea for the day after Wrestlemania that includes a shocking announcement but it’s not my show and I don’t make the rules, so I can’t guarantee that the world will see that idea come to fruition.

You’ve previously mentioned plans to write a novel about a black woman in her 30s growing up in the segregated south in the mid-1950s. Are you still planning on writing that novel?
I am, but I’m going to be fairly low key about it because I may actually write that under an assumed name, thereby escape the harshest of the critics, who are just out to cut a wrestler down to size. And then, if by some lucky break the thing turns out to be a success, I’ll be taking credit for it the next day.

[b]How does your wife feel about the idea of a reality show?[/b]
Oh, she’s terrified. You know, the people at A&E really sold me on what the show could be. I watched some of their shows specifically and I think that in the same way I was really proud of being in Beyond the Mat, I could be proud of a reality show, especially if it allows me to cover some of my interests outside of wrestling and may draw people into supporting some causes that I do.

Yep. Mick’s day-after-Mania idea never happened, but he’s got a reality show pilot in the works. Click above to read the entire interview, and don’t forget to enter that contest!
