Mick Foley wrote the following on Twitter:
I’m in a much better frame of mind after watching my new DVD with my kids. I have SO much to be proud of. No way I’ll give fans anything less than the best possible speech I can. And if the powers-that-be decide not to air my speech on television, I’ll accept that it was a simply a decision that was beyond my control, and do everything I can – through the passion for my profession – to make that decision look as glaringly stupid as possible.
The controversy began when promotional clips for the 4/9 USA Network WWE Hall of Fame special revealed Foley’s speech isn’t expected to be included. Foley admitted if the speech isn’t included it will feel like a slap to the face.
Mick will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Terry Funk Saturday night in Madison Square Garden.
