Mick Foley Talks About A Possible WWE Network Special, Speaking Out Against Creative

Hoping WWE will cooperate on his I Am Santa Claus documentary:
"I want to have their footage in it without charging a price that makes that impossible. We are looking at November [for release], with a big announcement regarding the film in the next few weeks. We want to have it out in some way, whether it's Netflix or a possible small theatrical run. It's a really good movie. It's something I'm glad I pursued. My official role as a subject was over December 2, 2012 and here it is a year-and-a-half later. I'm showing up for late night editing sessions and try to make the movie as good as it can be for when it's seen to the public. Everything attracts me when it comes to the story-telling, whether it's in the ring with the physicality, the emotion and facial expressions or on stage. Once I got involved with this. It reminded me of what I loved when I was a college student with the emphasis on TV production."

Speaking out against WWE booking earlier this year:
"I expressed that frustration, and they ended up going into the direction I hoped they would. So you won't see me complaining about their direction any time soon. It's a bullet I can only fire once in a great while. I watch the show and enjoyed it, as I usually doÖ I think the future looks really bright. There are a lot of great stars. It's hard to focus on all of them. The talent pool has so greatly changed over the last few years. They have done a tremendous job of using their legendary figures in supporting roles and kind of allowing the superstars of the past few years to usher in the superstars we see today."

A possibly comedy special on the WWE Network:
"I've accepted that WWE is too busy with their network to send someone out to check it out. To me, it seems like a simple sidestep to a new form of entertainment. For whatever reason, I don't think it's going to happen. It makes perfect sense, but the less said about it the better. I'm tired of waiting for them to find out it's a perfect marriage. I can't make them and continue to do my own thing. I'll continue to pursue my own [televised] special."

That bit about him only having one bullet to fire...I think he might have an inflated sense of that bullet. More like a BB.
