Dewey Foley, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, left his job with the company in June of this year. He previously held down a job as a writer within the company. Now Mick has an update on his son to share.

During Foley Is Pod, Mick mentioned that his son would be able to work better if he had fewer constraints. Despite his good track record with WWE, Foley said that he wouldn’t be surprised if Dewey ended up working somewhere else.

“He would be a really valuable guy to have when writing promos, I know I’m his dad and everyone thinks highly of their child, but I’m going on what people have told me. They really like him and I just wanted to say what a great job he did. If it is the end of his wrestling run, it’s a really great run.”

Foley also mentioned that he thinks Dewey was identical to Samoa Joe and joked, that he “always wanted to see him roll out from under the ring with the big trunks on.” Dewey began working with WWE back in 2015 and eventually become the lead writer of 205 Live, before joining the creative team of the black and gold era of NXT.


Mick said he doesn’t know what’s next for his son with his career. He does know he’s going to do something that will make a difference in the world, whether it’s in the wrestling business or not. Foley loves his son and is obviously proud of everything he’s accomplished.
