Mick Foley has his finger on the pulse of professional wrestling and he also realizes there are some matches that he couldn’t pass up an opportunity to be a part of. Foley’s time in the ring as a competitor might be over, but he can still play a special referee role.
Onita recently said that he wants a match against Jon Moxley. That encounter could be very dangerous and full of gimmicked spots. Foley is 100% about it as he replied to an article about what Onita said by making himself available to help out.
If an Onita vs Moxley match were to happen, I’d like to be the referee.
I always felt the “American Onita” label given to me by the Japanese press and fans was a huge honor.
We’ll have to see if AEW takes advantage of this and makes that match happen. It’s doubtful that the company will produce another exploding barbed wire deathmatch, but you also never know what Tony Khan could be thinking. The company might want some redemption after how Revolution turned out with a bunch of snakes and sparklers instead of a big boom.
Who would win between Moxley and Onita? Sound off in the comments!
