Mick Foley is one of the most, if not the ultimate, hardcore wrestlers in WWE history. His long list of going through tables, glass, and fire, among other things, is well remembered by the WWE universe. But did you know that the WWE Hall of Famer was almost let go by Vince McMahon for his mistakes?
During his interview with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on his ‘Broken Skull Sessions‘, Mick Foley revealed the one time Vince McMahon almost fired him for multiple mistakes in a match.
“I did my move where I think Bob [Hardcore] Holly catches the boot, spins me, and I fell down. I made a couple of really awkward mistakes that I really let down, because I always put a lot of pride in my performance. I didn’t wanna be the guy phoning it in. That night I really felt like I let myself down. Vince said, ‘Mick, you’ve just had your last match.’ I was like, ‘You sure you don’t want me to do…’ ‘No, that’s it.’” (H/t Sportskeeda for transcriptions)
For context here, Foley was talking about the pre-taped SmackDown match that had to be edited following Foley’s awkward mistakes.

Mick Foley on his retirement match against Triple H
During the podcast, Foley also stated that in the early 2000s, Triple H was about to take off as the number one heel. He needed someone to work with to further establish him in that role. Foley recalls that deep down he wanted to go out with the type of matches that he had.
This was not a knock on Big Show, but Big Show wasn’t ready to be that guy then. And so Vince asked Foley and Hunter if we thought they could pull off main-event quality matches. “Yes, we can,” concluded Foley.
Lucky for us, Vince McMahon went against his own decisions and kept Foley around for a couple of more years. Mick Foley dedicated his life to wrestling and his dedication rightfully earned him a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2013. We as fans thank him for the years of entertainment and joy he brought into our lives.

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov
The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.
The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.
The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.
World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”
