Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?
Rock is not the one to blame. Foley writes in his book that they planned on having five chair shots. The last one was supposed to be the one in the back of the head when he was lying on the ramp.
But Foley for whatever reason took a chair shot and didn't go down and took another one, didn't go down again until finally going down after three chair shots.
They still had to do several more before ending up on the ramp where Foley would need to take at least two.
You can hear Michael Cole screaming "What in the hell is Mankind doing?". That's a sign that it was unscripted for Foley to take three shots before going down. Now what was Rock supposed to do if his opponent wouldn't stay down as planned?!
Not to mention, sitting his wife and two little kids in the front row to witness all of this. I lost respect for Foley here and not for Rock.
However, Rock not checking on Mick afterwards was wrong.
