Raw General Manager and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley had an emotional week following last week's episode of Monday Night Raw and he delivered a very effusive promo with the Commissioner Stephanie McMahon at the start of this week's episode of company's flagship show.
Following Raw, the former World Champion revealed some more interesting things about his relation with the Commissioner of Raw in his latest Facebook post. below are some of the highlights from the post;
In his latest post, Foley revealed that the story he told about his first meeting with Stephanie was real and revealed that it's also a part of WWE Hall Of Famer Patt Patterson's new book:
"In case you're wondering - the story of the girl with the shy smile/guy with the tooth in his nose is absolutely true. I was flattered that Pat Patterson included aspects of the story in his memoir "Accepted", and it is included in Stephanie's upcoming "unReal" as well."
Although the former Hardcore champion revealed that after a year of that incident Stephanie had evolved very much and didn't seem so shy anymore:
"A year and a half later, the beautiful young lady with the shy smile didn't seem quite so shy anymore; she was a force to be reckoned with in WWE and was a big part of the classic program I had with Paul "Triple H" Levesque to close out my career in early 2000."
Talking about his relation with the former Authority member Mick revealed that he has always considered her to be a friend of him:
"Over the years, I may have gone in and out of favor with the company, and my relationship with Mr McMahon has been strained at times - although it's getting much better. But there has never been a time when I have not considered Stephanie McMahon a friend"
Praising her ability to play her role of the bad boss, Foley said that she has a rare ability to inhabit a character:
"Stephanie will sometimes mention that she "plays" a bad guy on TV. I don't think she's playing. I think she has that rare ability to inhabit a character, to the point where she becomes it - so that when she's good, she's really good; but when she's bad she's even better."
Finally, speaking of the way this week's episode of Raw started, the WWE hall of Famer said that it felt important to both of them:
The opening to #Raw on Monday felt important to both of us. For me, it was powerful, almost magical – the type of thing that made what had previously seemed like a random selection as GM in the minds of many fans suddenly make perfect sense. The type of thing that gets me excited about the future, might encourage WWE Superstars to take risks with their characters and spark new ideas among the creative team
