Report: WWE Officials Upset With Mick Foley

UPDATE: Several top WWE executives are reportedly upset at Mick Foley. This is due to the blogs and tweets he made in regards to the booking of Daniel Bryan around the Royal Rumble. Foley was very critical of the company during that time about how they were booking Daniel Bryan and not listening to the fans.

They’re likely not happy about his latest blog (see below), where he explains not signing a new legends deal because he was disappointed with the payoffs on the past two videogames.

ORIGINAL: Mick Foley posted the following blog on his Facebook page earlier this evening:

LEGENDS DEAL

“To deal..or not to deal – that is the question. As some of you may have heard, at this point, I am opting not to sign my Legends Marketing Deal, which gives ‪#‎WWE‬ the right to market my likeness on video games and action figures. I’ll be writing in more detail about this in the next week or so, but it would be fair to say that, despite strong sales, I have found the payoffs for the past two video games to be extremely weak – in the 25% range of what most talent was expecting.

Last year, the explanation had something to do with the video game company going bankrupt – a real shame for me, since I was heavily featured as three characters from the “Attitude” era, complete with voice work. I haven’t heard this year’s explanation yet, but, personally. I think the #WWE just wants to see if the talent will accept a far lower percentage than had previously been given. If so, it would proably be a good business move for #WWE, since very few current wrestlers are going to jeapordize their standing with the company by offering resistance – and most legends will probably come to feel like anything they get from merchandise is better than nothing.

As for me: until I hear a valid reason, I’m opting out.”

  1. Someone needs to tell Mick Foley that pro-wrestling is on the way out…like roller derby, drive-in theaters, etc…

    • Still go to the drive in its real popular in my area and MLB has a better chance of going under than the wwe

      • It’s certainly not like it was in the ’90s. I say give it a few more years and it’ll only decline. Imagine going from excellent promos by Flair and Freebirds etc… in the ’80s, to the Attitude/NWO era, to “Yes, yes, yes”. Buddy, the writing in on the wall.

    • I don’t know if they need to tell him that but he needs to be told rule 1 about shooting from the hip and that is to aim somewhat horizontally so as to avoid shooting yourself in the foot!

    • wrestling has a world wide following of 100s of millions of people for decades. roller derby…. lol no fads come and go but wrestling has been around since before recorded time really look it up it was even staged in the middle ages

      • Even Abe Lincoln was a wrestler….”It’s certainly not like it was in the ’90s. I say give it a few more
        years and it’ll only decline. Imagine going from excellent promos by
        Flair and Freebirds etc… in the ’80s, to the Attitude/NWO era, to
        “Yes, yes, yes”. Buddy, the writing in on the wall.”

  2. Several executive are angry…all at the same time? Are they sitting with sulky faces in their offices with comedy steam coming out their ears? EGADS!!!
