Mick Foley posted to his Facebook page yesterday, sharing his praise for Kevin Owens. Foley said that if Owens had been around while he was active, the NXT champion would forced him to become a better wrestler. You can see the full post below:
No matter where I was during the course of my career, I always felt comfortable in knowing that my character was unique and that my matches were going to be different than anyone else’s on the card. I really think that if Kevin Owens had been around while I was in my peak that he would have forced me to become a better wrestler – to increase my limited offensive arsenal, and to step up the cardio to keep up with his faster pace. I appreciate that so many people miss me on their TV sets each week, but I’m not really gone. Kevin Owens is a faster, stronger, more aggressive version of me who you can see each week on WWE Raw and WWE SmackDown.
So does Foley fear Owens? In a way. I’m afraid that when wrestling’s history book is written and the topic of top wrestlers with unorthodox body types is discussed, that my name will no longer be first on the list!
How do you think a match between Cactus Jack in his early 90’s prime or late 90’s Mankind would have turned out? Let’s hear it for another piece of Rob Schamberger art too! Who will you be pulling for in Owens/Cena 3 – the rubber match?
