Alex Marvez is featuring an interview with TNA star Mick Foley in his syndicated column looking at Foley’s role as “The Network” for TNA on Impact Wrestling and why the role has worked for him in the past.
“I really feel like one of the biggest contributions I’ve made to wrestling was making the authority figure a big part of a wrestling show. It seemed like from that point on, a lot of authority figures have become very prominent on just about every wrestling show.
It is a challenge. I have to believe in what I’m doing. If that means helping to put the spotlight on some of the stars who are either hiding or have been placed in the shadows, I think I can bring them some relevancy. I’ve got some ideas that might offend some people. But I think wrestling from time to time can make people think and create some water-cooler conversation.”
