WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley wrote the following on Facebook earlier today on him no longer being under contract to WWE, but looking to still work with WWE going forward:
It is with mixed emotions that I announce that, as of yesterday, I am officially no longer the General Manager of “Saturday Morning Slam.” While I am saddened by the end of my illustrious run as the main man behind the stratospheric success of “Slam” – truly some of the finest weeks in company history, I also know that I can look back without regrets. Whether it was dancing with the Prime Time Players, dancing with The Usos, dancing with Broadus Clay and Sweet T or singing “Danny Boy” with Shaemus, I held absolutely nothing back; leaving a piece of my soul behind with each and every historic 30 minute episode.
OK, seriously: I enjoyed having the opportunity to do the show, enjoyed being a regular part of WWE TV for a while, and am grateful that WWE honored the contract for the entire year.
So, with my “Slam” contract completed, I am no longer under contract to WWE, but look forward to working with them in the future. I did an appearance for WWE today at a NY Islanders game, will represent them at a Knicks game this week (pretty sure these are unpaid appearances, although WWE can feel free to surprise me with a little check-a-roonie in the Foley mailbox if they want to) and will continue to represent WWE in a number of community relations appearances in the coming year.
If any of you video enthusiast want to compile a “Best of Mick Foley Saturday Morning Slam” video montage, I will be glad to play it.
