Former four-time World Champion Mick Foley regrets not being the general manager of the WWE's flagship Monday Night Raw show longer than he did.
The 53-year-old, who performed under several monikers including Dude Love, Cactus Jack and Mankind, as well as his birth name, had quite a career in the WWE and recently served as the special guest referee for the Universal Championship match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar at last month's Hell in a Cell.
Foley also served as the Raw GM for several months, taking up the post in July of 2016 before being relieved of managerial duties by Stephanie McMahon - the one who hired him in the first place - in March of the following year.
The ex-wrestler spoke to Jason Setnyk of the Cornwall Seeker after a recent meet and greet event in Cornwall, Ontario and insisted he had an enjoyable time as the Raw general manager and wishes he could have carried on a bit longer.
“I enjoyed my time working on Raw with Stephanie McMahon," he said. "I needed a hip replaced, and a knee replaced, so I couldn’t do it as long as I would have liked to, but I enjoyed being back there.”
Asked about all of his notable achievements in the promotion, which includes co-headlining WrestleMania, Foley employed a modest approach in his response, claiming he was never the focal point of the WWE at any stage of his career
“I was filling in temporarily for the biggest stars." he declared. I never lead the company."
The interview also touched on the infamous 1997 Montreal Screwjob, something which obviously didn't sit well with Foley as he walked out on the company, albeit for a day
“I had walked out for a day, and I didn’t go to Ottawa after Survivor Series," he said. "It was a little bit contentious in the locker room. I guess Mr. McMahon did what he thought he had to do to keep the company alive and we moved on.”
