He's the official "pro wrestling columnist" for the New York Daily News, in case you didn't know :
Well, the mystery is over as to who will referee this Sunday's "Hell in the Cell" match between world champ Triple H and Kevin Nash at "Bad Blood." We'll tell you in a couple of more words, we're just building the suspense ... OK, enough suspense - it's Mick Foley! "Raw" co-general manager Stone Cold Steve Austin officially named the Mickster last Monday as the "special" referee for the main event and trouble soon followed.
Immediately after the announcement, Triple H came ringside and argued Foley's folly to be in the ring. Showing no fear, Foley quickly "whupped upped" on Triple H's head, knocking him to the mat and walked away as if to say, "I'm ready to handle any hell in the cell."
Funny, I could have SWORN that it was Foley who was laid out and beat up once RAW went off the air (Nash was the only one that "whupped up" on Triple H, as far as I could tell) ...
I wonder if this guy even watches the actual shows; it's like when he did a recap of the 2000 Survivor Series, and he said that BOTH Triple H and Benoit were in the car when Austin dropped it from "thirty feet" in the air; just stupid stupid stupid.
Oh, and this line isn't much better :
Total Non-Stop Action wrestlers shifted to a more athletic style of competition, concentrating on cruiserweight wrestlers, and now boast a lineup of Jerry Jarett's son Jeff, the Raven, the Sandman, Jerry Lynn and A.J. Styles.
To be fair, I think the guy was just clumsy in the way he worded this sentence ... Still, it's kind of funny t o see the Sandman being listed as a "cruiserweight".
