Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?

ish happens. They're great friends now. As already said, Foley was at his peak of popularity here, and Rock being a GREAT heel only helped in that regard. Foley shouldn't have had his fam sit at a hardcore match where he was gonna get whooped and lose his title, and Mick Foley is the man btw. Rock should've been more vocal in checking on him tho. Regardless it's patched up

Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?

The agreed upon number of Chair shots were 5. Rock hit him 11 times. Im not so sure it was Foleys fault, and if you watched the video, Rock aint pulling any swings. Foley even admits later on in his book that he was bitter about the rock hitting him more than they agreed, so it wasnt FOLEYS idea like a few of you have said. The fact of the matter is that Rock didnt really appreciate what Foley was doing to put him over. I mean, its pretty shit when FOLEY had to go look for Rock after the match, and if you watched Beyond the Mat, Rock didnt look the least bit concerned when they ran into eachother. I think its pretty clear that Rock pulled a dick move during this fight. Minus 5 respect.

Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?

For those that know the story which it seems many of you do - how long was Foley mad at Rock for this incident?

Im not sure he was "mad" per say. I think Rock just rubbed him the wrong way. There is a certain code and respect among wrestlers. When one wrestler lets you beat the shit out of them with a chair, then throwing in 6 more than agreed upon..........its considered good practice to check on them and thank them after the match. Rock did neither, and Foley actually had to walk aroudn the locker room to find him. I think the Rock didnt give a shit about foley at this period in his life.

Mad/bitter/rubbed the wrong way, how long was it between Foley having a problem with it and him becoming friends with Rock - does anyone know? Just would like to know the full story.

The problem with videos like that is you realise how predictable the brutal stuff is thesedays.

Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?

In general I think 1999 is a funny year when the company and wrestlers break kayfabe by breaking kayfabe with things like Mick's book. Why should he really be mad when he was the one allowing himself to take the shots beyond the expected shots? I always seen Beyond The Mat with a mixture of kayfabe although breaking kayfabe.

Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?

When you split a mans head open as a stepping stone for your career, its good practice to go check them afterwards.

What a crazy world or universe this wrestling is in where winning the WWF Tag Team Championship can put real life professional relationships back together.
