Mick Foley on being left off of the WWE HOF brodcast on USA



Mick Foley is determined to deliver the best speech at the Hall of Fame
to let the powers that be know what a stupid decision they made for
leaving him out of the Hall of Fame broadcast on USA Network on Tuesday.
“I’ll give the best speech I can, and let the decision makers make the
decisions,” Foley wrote after it was revealed that Trish Stratus, Donald
Trump, and Bruno Sammartino will be the three headliners on the USA
Network one hour broadcast. “I’ll accept that it was a simply a decision
that was beyond my control, and do everything I can ­ through the passion
for my profession ­ to make that decision look as glaringly stupid as
possible,” Foley added. The addition of Trump and Trish to the broadcast
stem most likely from the fact that Vince and Stephanie McMahon will be
doing the inductions respectively, raising the profile for both inductees.
The one hour broadcast which airs on Tuesday is always butchered by the
WWE crew and all the good stuff is left in the editing room due to the
long acceptance speeches and limited amount of airtime. The full Hall of
Fame ceremony will be included in the WrestleMania 29 Blu-Ray and DVD
release.

    So dumb. If you are trying to draw ratings, who has more name recognition. I like Sammartino, but most people outside the wrestling community don’t know who the hell he is. I am sure they put him on to make him happy. Trump I must begrudingly say I can understand. I hate Trump but he does have name recognition. I love Trish but I would say she is less well known than Foley, in the U.S. at least.
