WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley made an appearance on the “Busted Open” satellite radio show talking about his current relationship with TNA President Dixie Carter since he left the company back in early 2011.
“I really enjoyed the people there. But once you had five non-wrestling talkers in the company…my role now is what it should be. The guy who occasionally comes back. I love doing the Saturday Morning Slam. If a different GM opportunity comes up, I would appreciate being considered. But I don’t need to be a big part of any show ever again. I probably outstayed my welcome by a little while. One nice little story about Dixie Carter. I never should have said that tweet about the empty arena match with the Rock, aka a TNA House show. That was the one that rubbed people the wrong way, because it was a slap in the face to everyone who works there, even though it was kind of funny.
“I was doing a show in Nashville, so I reached out to Dixie. I texted her ‘hey I’ve got this show in Nashville, it would be really nice to see you and Serge and maybe you could come along. ‘ I get back in my car about an hour later and I see a text from Dixie and it says ‘that’s ok.’ I thought to myself well that bridge has burned. That relationship is unsolvable. It wasn’t until an hour after, that I saw the ‘that’s ok’ was just on the tail end of a much longer message that said ‘ I really appreciate you thinking of us. We would love to go, but I may have to be somewhere. Can I get back to you if’ and then the last line ‘that’s ok.’ She did come to the show and honestly she was the first person to message me after they put me in the Hall of Fame. I wish I could have done more for them. I really do.”
