Mick Foley: Want's to see more focus on Wrestling

Mick Foley appeared as a guest on SunSport’s WrestleCast radio show and had the following to say:

On a nixed heel turn
This is breaking news, and maybe I’ll get in trouble for this, but TNA had discussed me doing a big heel turn. But with this anti-bullying campaign we’re doing and coming off an award for reasonableness I was given by Jon Stewart, it just didn’t seem right. To be hitting people with my reasonableness award on TV would be funny, I could have done a couple of weeks of good television. But in the bigger picture — and I think TNA has got to start looking at the bigger picture more often — I could be a lot more effective as somebody who goes out there and talks about serious issues.

On more wrestling in TNA
I remember being in a 10 man match with some really good wrestlers and the whole thing was over in five minutes. Sometimes the wrestling almost seems like an afterthought. You’re doing it at 5.30 in the afternoon in a theme park. I still think there should be more wrestling. That’s my major complaint. We have the guys who can do it. It is a wrestling show. It is called Total Nonstop Action. It’s an easy solution. I still think it should be more wrestling-driven. That way when you do your angles it means more. Your promos mean more. I hope they give it a try.
