Cane Dewey was one of my favourite promos he cut in ecw, Theres another i really like, where he's sat in the dark saying sometime like he was late to the arena because he couldn't remember way. The way the tone of his voice keeps changing out of no where is unreal he just goes for talking in his soft slow style voice to screaming at the camera and right back to soft talking a few seconds later.
Apart from maybe the Undertaker no one has been able to in brace their gimmick as well as Mick Foley.
I need to go back and watch more from 96 i cant remember much he did in that time. The one thing i do remember is his interview with JR, which i think is the best mic work he did in wwe.
It's this one, which i think was in 96?
