Mick Foley On How NXT Affects The Indy Scene, The Divas Revolution And His Daughter Noelle

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently spoke with AuburnPub.com.  Here are some Highlights:

On the effect NXT has on the Indy scene:

“I certainly think it shines a light on how much great talent is out there on the scene. We used to have a tendency to look down on indy wrestlers. Now indy wrestlers are looked at and treated with a new respect. It’s a conversation I just had with some of the indy guys. Having come from an indy background myself, I understood how difficult it is to work hard each night and, in “wrestle speak,” get over with a different audience without the benefit of known entrance music, that Pavlovian response, and an established fan base. So I think NXT is great for indy wrestling, and knowing that when we come to Auburn, fans may very well be seeing the stars of the future of the wrestling business.”

 On how he thinks the Divas Revolution should progress:
“I think the only thing that remains is to change the established patterns of wrestling fans who, for years, saw Divas matches as a time to get up and take a break. So most people are catching on, are taking note of the marked improvement in the women’s division. I think calling it the women’s division, dropping the “Divas” moniker, is the next logical step in that progression.”

On his daughter Noelle’s social media following and if she has any plans to become a wrestler:

” I would love for Noelle to be on the other side of the business, the non-wrestling side, but the truth is that if she were to come to Auburn High, she would outdraw me as far as autographs. She definitely draws a crow.”
