Mick Foley To Make Decision Not To Air His Hall Of Fame Speech “Glaringly Stupid”

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.

    This is obviously a decision made by Triple H to keep Foley’s speech off of TV. They threw themselves at Sammartino & threw Foley to the side once they had Bruno sign on. Foley deserves a spot on the TV broadcast.

    The headline makes no sense.

      That’s happening more and more lately. Either the headline is incredibly misleading or it makes no sense. It seems Richard was going for something sensationalist and whiffed.

        How hard is it to understand? Mick Foley is going to show the powers that be, that their decision not to air his speech will be “glaringly stupid”.

        Its not a hard concept when you actually read it and the whole article following it. The headline suggests exactly what Foley was quoted as saying so people know what to expect when they read it.

          I did read it; I’m sure Philip did too. You can’t even fix the headline with different punctuation. It’s awkwardly worded to say the least.
