With all the trash talk and Twitter beefs and angry Facebook posts among athletes these days it is kind of a nice change of pace to see one athlete saying something positive about another one don't you think?
Mick Foley was a wrestlers that always put 120% into every match he fought. He gave it is all and left everything he had out there for his fans in an effort to put on the best show possible! So, if I were Kevin Owens, I would be honoured to read what Foley wrote about him on his Facebook page the other day.
"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."
Foley than gave Owens, maybe the biggest compliment he could give a fellow wrestler, when he wrote: "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!"
