While speaking on a recent episode of Foley is Pod, the Hardcore Legend talked about his days as a commentator. Foley admitted they weren’t his favorite days due to Vince McMahon yelling into his headset all the time.


”You try to learn from everything you do, and I hope Mr. McMahon learned from that experience. You know, you don’t need to ride your announcers so much. You don’t have to micromanage everything that they do.”

I think it’s counter-productive, and especially when it comes to yelling. That’s not the way I perform best.” I tried it, I think I did a pretty good job,” he declared, noting that he always aimed to put over the performers ahead of his own personality. “I learned from it. I did not enjoy it.”
