I agree in the fact that I loved Foley when he had that sit down interview with JR and went over his life story. He was still deranged enough and a little more human.
That said, they had to increase his marketability, especially since they wanted to use him as a spot main-eventer. Mick has great comedic timing and the fans ate it up. I'm sure he would tell you himself that he needed to make the change to be even more likable.
