WWE Contemplating Foley vs Punk For TLC


- F4WOnline.com reports Wednesday that WWE officials are contemplating a match pitting Mick Foley against CM Punk at next month's TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view event in Brooklyn, New York. Monday's Raw angle with Jerry "The King" Lawler points in that direction, and the idea has been discussed for over a month.

Re: WWE Contemplating Foley vs Punk For TLC

Why? Foley is in terrible shape. This would just be Punk smashing chairs on Foley, occasionally Foley will hit Punk with a few, but eventually (and predictably) Punk wins. C'mon WWE, at least try to make it a bit unpredictable.

No chance, Foley can barely walk.

As much as I love Mick, this would be a terrible idea.

I would absolutely love it. I think Foley can pull it off, if it's a gimmick match which I'm sure it would be. Plus, it sets up Punk/Rock perfectly.

Please, WWE. Let's see it.

Oh god no. This is an awful idea. Dude does not need to take any more bodily harm at this stage in his life. He can barely walk, I remember him hitting a DDT on someone earlier this year, he had to crawl to the ropes for support to get himself up. All in all this outcome would not be a good one.

Re: WWE Contemplating Foley vs Punk For TLC

Foley is in bad shape but what else can they do? You don't want Ryback losing to Punk AGAIN, you don't want Cena losing to Punk AGAIN (though Cena can afford it, but that's not what WWE will want, he's the top, TOP guy), you don't have anybody else that's believable against Punk, or one that could sell as well, and this is a PPV where you don't need a particularly strong WWE Championship match, it's just one of those "get it over with so we can move on to the real story" PPV's.

I think Miz is gonna screw over Team Foley on Sunday, so that would throw a wrench into Foley vs Punk if it happens, how do you work around that, etc. I guess they could just not have that happen. If Foley turned into Cactus Jack, Punk would be able to sell that moment really well and it could garner some interest for the PPV. Granted, it wouldn't be a really hardcore, traditional Jack match, but it would threaten Punk and put a good story behind it, and make him look good when he wins.

The only other alternative I can see is Big Show goes over Sheamus, and then Big Show fights Orton at TLC and somehow Sheamus goes after Punk for TLC, but that would make NO sense because you'd be promoting Sheamus for losing to Big Show, but he's the only real person that I could see as a threat besides Ryback and Cena, who should not be taking another loss.

111 - Jessica Jones & Hunger Games Part 3 Part 2

Another week another this show we do. This week we're all about Marvel's new Netflix series Jessica Jones as well as the last Hunger Games movie. Plus Peter Jackson on the failures of The Hobbit, Wonder Woman, more Riddick stuff, Justice League Dark and Shrek for some reason.

Foley can barely walk and wears what look to be orthopedic shoes. Should have kept Punk in Survivor Series and saved the 3 way match for TLC.

Re: WWE Contemplating Foley vs Punk For TLC

I don't think Foley can take much more wrestling, give him comedy and he'll run with it and love it, give him some good subjects and he can cut a fine promo, but a match probably wouldn't be very good.

I've said before you can hide a lot of sloppiness through chair shots and flaming tables, but some times it's just too much for even the flamingest, spikiest, barbed wire coated exploding table to cover.

Re: WWE Contemplating Foley vs Punk For TLC

Well, Foley V Orton and Foley V Edge were awesome and in theory, I'd love to see this match.

However, can you see the E letting Foley do a Foley style match. No thumbtacks, flaming tables, chairshots, handcuffs and general utter craziness. Basically, I don't think Foley could work a current style WWE match.

Will mark for Father Ted references.

Re: WWE Contemplating Foley vs Punk For TLC

If this was the Foley even when he faced Edge at WM 22, I'd be all for it. Now? Hell fucking no. He is in really bad shape and it would be painful to watch. Foley is still fantastic at cutting promos and comedy skits. Stick with that please.
