- Press Release:
Former three-time WWE Champion & New York Time Best selling author Mick Foley was one of the featured guests on this week’s edition of Monday Night Mayhem. Here are some interview highlights courtesy of Kahlil Thomas, MNM’s associate producer & official correspondent:
His thoughts about returning to WWE television earlier this month, as part of “RAW Gets Rocked”: “I was in negotiations with the WWE, and I said ‘Look, I’ll come back on one condition…I want to be in a really bad segment. Like historically bad. I want to have people talking about how bad this segment will be years from now.’ I think there’s no doubt that we did that (in Boston). One of the worst segments of all-time. I thought it was fun, even though a few people didn’t see the point in me coming back after such a long time to be involved in something like that, but I think it was great.”
Which three WWE Superstars he has the chance to interact with and focus on the most thus far since coming back to the WWE: “I will say when I got in the ring with The Miz, there was an immediate chemistry. He’s very good at what he does. He’s perhaps the best jerk in the business, which is a tribute. Right now, I’m watching Dolph Ziggler in the ring. To me, he’s underrated in the sense that he’s right on the verge of being recognized as a superstar, but I believe his matches have been so good that when he gets a chance to turn that page, he will have the credibility to pull that off. Watching Zack Ryder’s rise to stardom is a of fun, because you could see how elated he is.”
Whether you can expect to see him perform at and/or be a part of WrestleMania XXVIII at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, FL: “I think I better buy a ticket if I want to get in this WrestleMania. Everyone wants that big spot, and traditionally, even my biggest match of the decade has been with Randy Orton, the match after WrestleMania. The guys who have been carrying the company should have that spot on the biggest night. I’m going to try to get into some semblance of condition, just to if the fates are kind and decide that I should be a part of that show.”

- During a recent interview with the UK Sun Newspaper Mr. Anderson defended Jeff Hardy and his personal issues.
“A guy like Jeff Hardy, regardless of what you think about him personally, is a tremendous entertainer. He loves this business and gives his all to this business. Everybody makes mistakes, everybody does stupid stuff. I’m not trying to make excuses for anybody, but when you’ve had the career that he’s had and done the things that he’s done, you’re bound to make mistakes. When you do make mistakes people are going to look at it with a magnifying glass and amplify it and make it bigger than it actually is. I think he’s done a great job of overcoming that and recognizing ‘I did this. This is my problem. How do I fix it so that I don’t do it again? How do I move forward?’ He’s done all those things. I have no judgments about Jeff Hardy other than the fact that he is a great performer and a hell of a guy”.

- Former WWE Diva Maryse reiterated that she will not wrestle for TNA during an interview with SLAM! Wrestling. She said, “I would go back to WWE, for a million dollars and a main event match at Wrestlemania…but, no TNA.”
On her departure from WWE she said:
“I just want better and bigger and I want to be performing on the big screen, I am working on a big project called House Of Maryse, which will be launching in summer 2012. It will be my clothing and jewelery selection and will be available in more than 500 stores in the U.S. and online at houseofmaryse.com.”
“I knew in my heart that I wanted to leave WWE for a long time. I’m a business woman. I need to build and grow and I didn’t have any interest in the WWE anymore. I was like, next! My manager was happy when he heard of my release. He said to me, ‘Now we can start working on the serious stuff.’ I’m ready for a new chapter in my life. I have been with the WWE for six fantastic years, but now I want to do more.”
