I was in the post office today, mailing a fellow wrestling buddy his Christmas gift. The office had CNN playing on a TV for those lined up. CNN interviewed Mick Foley about the SmackDown tour in the Middle East at about 11:40 today (Tuesday, Dec. 21). The interview followed a commercial break in the midst of CNN's coverage of the attack on the Mosul mess hall. The anchor began the interview setting up the wrestling show and aired a small clip of Foley playing Santa in the ring for the troops. For the interview, Foley was in his performing outfit (red checkered flannel and blue t-shirt). Obviously the anchor was trying to change the tone of the broadcast a bit.

The first thing Foley said, and I'm paraphrasing, was "I'm sorry to be appearing on a day of such bad news." After brushing off the previous clip with Torrie Wilson and other divas in their ring gear, the entire waiting line looked up to see who said that. I don't think the WWE organization could have picked a better person to make the company appear human for the tour and in a particular segment few might volunteer for.

Nice job, Mick. Class act.

Foley has always been an articulate orator and is a great representative for the WWE.

Nay, he is a scholar and a gentleman!


I don't know why, but I just had to say that...

Finally, a Savior for the WWE!

I was thinking more of Chris Benoit before he got hurt. I believe they did a RAW in Calgary last spring where they reacted the screwjob night using Chris as Bret and Austin as Shawn.
