Mick Foley is the latest person getting attention over their dissatisfaction with the current WWE product. Last week, the former world champion wrote a blistering Facebook post declaring that he may give up on WWE Raw altogether. To his credit, he did offer a constructive solution that wasn’t just Sasha Banks winning all the belts then riding off into the sunset on the New Day’s unicorn. As flawless as that idea is, Mick’s is probably better:
I live 90 minutes from WWE headquarters (less without traffic). They know I’ve offered to come in, for free, and give them my honest opinions. I have nothing to lose by telling them the truth. I don’t work for them. If they don’t like what I have to say, I get in my car and drive home. No big deal.
While some would say that Mick is already on the take for WWE — publicly agreeing with popular fan sentiment, getting behind the female performers whether it jives with his complaints or not, using verbiage that lends to the idea of the return of the Women’s Championship belt in place of the Divas one — it seems his interest may become a little more family-oriented.
The current scuttlebutt is that Mick’s son Dewey (yes, that Dewey) is set to join WWE’s Creative team. Our sources have yet to confirm the exclusive story from SEScoops.com, but they say that the guy who recently referred to WWE as ‘a f*cking dictatorship’ could be working alongside the folks at the helm of its storyline direction.
Things we need immediately if this happens:
1. Mick Foley running into his son and Kane backstage, exclaiming “Kane! Dewey!”
2. Nothing. That’s it. That’s all I want from this potential new hire.
