WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is considered a legend in the pro wrestling industry. Before he joined WWE, Mick Foley worked in other companies and developed a reputation as a hardcore legend for good reason. He also can’t bear to watch his WrestleMania 20 with The Rock.
In 2004, Foley and The Rock reformed their iconic tag team, The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection. They squared off against Randy Orton, Batista, and Ric Flair in a Handicap Match at WrestleMania 20.
While speaking on his podcast Foley is Pod, Mick Foley revealed that he can’t bear to watch his WrestleMania 20 match as he felt too out of place in the match.
“I can’t watch the match. Ric Flair, he feels like it was a really good match. He says [it is], and I’m like, ‘Ric, I can’t watch it. I can’t watch.’ He said something, ‘You were great. You were great’ (…) I lost all my confidence, and I go from being this guy who had been the three-time WWE Champion, and I just become somebody who, in my mind, doesn’t belong out there.”
Mick Foley also had shockingly low payment in his first WWE contract. Foley will forever be respected for all he did for the industry, and that is unlikely to ever change.
