WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is considered a legend in the pro wrestling industry. Mick Foley worked in other companies and also worked with numerous top stars in the industry. Foley also mentioned one aspect of Vince McMahon’s booking that he was never a fan of.
Vince McMahon’s booking over the years was always controversial for many fans, as they felt he simply did not make sense and was clearly out of touch.
While speaking on “Foley is Pod,” Mick Foley said that there was an aspect of Vince McMahon’s booking that he disagreed with. He brought up a 2016 rivalry between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair. Foley made it clear he did not like McMahon booking them to lose in their respective hometowns.
“There is a part of Vince that genuinely likes to make dreams come true. He likes to do that for his audience. I think you could argue that he puts them through an unnecessary ringer sometimes, you know? Like I’m not a fan of having people lose and get embarrassed in their hometowns. I guess he thinks, you know, it’s good heat. I would rather have seen, you know, Charlotte [Flair] go over in Charlotte and Sasha [Banks] go over in Boston instead of vice versa.”
Flair won the RAW Women’s Championship in Banks’ hometown of Boston. Then at Hell in a Cell, The Boss beat Flair for the title in her hometown of Charlotte. With McMahon no longer the head of WWE Creative, it is likely fans won’t see any such booking ever again.
