WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley explains why he wasn't sold on Luke Harper, discusses the breakup of The Shield
2014-06-14 14:08:01


Chad Dukes Wrestling Show interview with Mick Foley
Host: Chad Dukes
Interview available at Chaddukeswrestlingshow.com

On Luke Harper: "I wasn't sold on him. I wasn't sold on the idea that they kept comparing him to Bruiser Brody, because Brody for the longtime wrestling fan was one of the great wrestlers of his era or of all time. But he was known as the intelligent monster and Harper was an out of control maniac. I think once you stop trying to imitate somebody and find your own way things really start clicking. So, I've been watching him and things have really been clicking and after the Wyatts have this amazing run, hopefully as long as possible, yeah, I do think he has what it takes to become a singles star."

On The Shield breakup: I thought it was pretty cool, yeah! I didn't see it coming and they had a long, a nice long run. Sometimes, and I'm not picking on other groups, but when I wrestled elsewhere for a couple of years it was almost as if they thought every person watching the show watched every episode and kept up on everything, and they would break up groups, literally within months, two or three months. 'Yeah, they've been together long enough, time to break 'em up!' These guys [the Shield] had been together for two years, the time was right; I think it gives Seth Rollins a chance to break out. He was almost like the forgotten member, even though he would steal shows. He wasn't the crazy guy, like Ambrose, and he wasn't the guy with the incredible physique, like Roman Reigns. So he tended to be forgotten. Evolution by the nature of its name should be constantly evolving, I think it was a good move, and I think he upped his stock.

Foley also discussed his upcoming comedy shows June 17 and June 19 at the DC Improv benefitting RAINN, the Redskins name controversy, and the problems with trying to stage a Christmas Story photo with his family.
