From Mick Foley’s Facebook page:
“As I mentioned on Twitter, I’ve never felt so disgusted at the conclusion of a WWE (or any) PPV. Like many of you out there, I just don’t get it. The Daniel Bryan thing is a phenomenon. You get it. I get it. The fans in Pittsburgh (yes, I was thinking of writing “RIGHT TH…but I’m just not in a cheap pop mood) got it. But tonight, for the first time, I had to admit to myself that the powers that be are just not going to get it. And that makes me sad. I’m just honestly sad, just flat out fucking sad (yes, I dropped an F-bomb there to emphasize how Fucking sad I am for the guys who bust their butts night in and night out–Ziggler, Punk, Bryan, etc. with no hope of getting their shot at this year’s Mania.
You know who else I’m sad for? Me. In my two years as an official WWE Ambassador, I never once had to lie about my enthusiasm for the company or the product. Now, although I am no lnger offically an Ambasaddor for WWE (believe it or not, my only offfical role in WWE is as GM for Saturday Morning Slam, a contract that ends in one month), I was still looking forward to being part of the biggest event of the year. I’ll probably end up going anyway. but I’m about 1/6th as excited about it as I was just a few hours ago. I wanted so badly to hear 75,000 WWE fans chanting “Yes,” and seeing fans walk away absolutely ecstatic about the outcojme of a PPV for the first time in a while…a long while. But when given the chance to make it happen (unless they’ve got something MAJOR up theri sleve), WWE’s answer right now was a resounding “NO, NO, NO.”
Mick Foley took to Twitter tonight to criticize WWE for booking of WWE Royal Rumble 2014.
Does @WWE actually hate their own audience? I’ve never been so disgusted with a PPV.
