Give the IC Title match 20 minutes and you won't hear a single complaint from me.Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald has an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who will be the commissioner for tonight's Ronin Pro Wrestling event at the Broward College-South Campus Gymnasium in Pembroke Pines, FL. Below are a couple of highlights:
Daniel Bryan not winning The Royal Rumble:
"Even though I was pulling for Daniel Bryan to win the Rumble, as soon as I found out it was going to be Roman Reigns I thought there would be some good possibilities and stories that could go on to make it really interesting. If I was commissioner still I would try to do my best to put the matches and the guys in them over as much as I could. That was always my goal with whatever I did. If there was or is a change of re-balancing of power in the future, I hope they would go with someone who could give the show a different feel. I think those shifts are really important every once in a while."
Being most excited for the Intercontinental title ladder match at WrestleMania:
"My oldest son [Dewey] and I were talking about how the championship and how it has become a hot commodity because I think there is an understating that these guys are going to put on a match that is going to be hard for anyone to top. That's what you need to make a great card. If that's anything but a classic, I'd be personally disappointed. I'm looking forward to that one. I want to see Sting and Triple H like anyone else. I'm going to go out on a limb here to say there better be a spot for AxelMania because it's running wild. I'm telling you right now. A pairing of AxelMania down the road with Damien Sandow or Mizdow could be the Mega Powers for the new generation."
Foley also discussed being the commissioner on RAW and working with Kurt Angle, Jon Stewart's appearance on RAW, Trina Michaels and much more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
I've got a feeling I'll be disappointed. I have really high hopes for the IC Title Ladder match to be one of the GOAT WM matches and be the best ladder match @ Mania since Wm16-17.
But if you look back @ those MITB matches, they never stole the show and Wm21 for example had a lot of talented guys in it (Benoit, Jericho, Edge, Shelton, etc.) but it was easily forgettable just like every WM MITB Ladder match.
Hope this one is special.
