He knows his way around the place. We’re coming up on the annual Hell In A Cell pay per view, meaning it’s time for some people to walk into one of the most violent structures that wrestling has ever seen. The thing is though, the Cell can’t be exactly as violent as it once was due to the changes in the times. However, there is still a great history of the Cell and now those two eras are coming together.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Mick Foley made his return to the company and announced that he will be guest refereeing Sunday’s Universal Championship match between champion Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman. Foley talked about wanting to make history with the Cell again and being granted the spot by Stephanie McMahon. This is Foley’s second time refereeing a Cell match, after guest refereeing Triple H vs. Kevin Nash at Bad Blood 2003.
What did he have to say?
Opinion: I mean….sure? Foley is my all time favorite wrestler and I can never complain about having him around on TV. I don’t know how much he’s going to be able to add to the match other than some hardcore credibility, but there’s no reason to think that the violence is going to be turned up, because that’s not how things work in the PG era. That’s not the worst thing in the world, but it’s reality.
Do you like Foley in the role? Who would have been a better choice? Let us know in the comments below.
