Can you blame them? The wrestling world has been undergoing a lot of changes in recent months and those are likely to continue for a long time to come. AEW has made some great strides forward and WWE has not exactly been moving forward in many ways. That has gone noticed by some wrestling legends, though WWE is not exactly happy with one of them.

Earlier this week, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley posted a video to Facebook where he talked about how WWE needed to be worried about AEW. The video went viral and WWE seems to have taken notice of what Foley said. According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast, WWE is unhappy with what Foley said as there is an unspoken rule stating that WWE Legends are not to speak negatively about the company. Foley is currently under a WWE Legends contract and there is nothing to suggest that his status will change.

Foley might know a thing or two about this. Check out his time in WWE:

Opinion: That’s about as WWE of a response as you can have. They aren’t unhappy about the condition of their company or how AEW is doing, but rather that someone who they bring back for various appearances every year or two criticized them. WWE has a lot of problems to solve at the moment, but if this is where they are focusing, those problems are going to get a lot bigger in a hurry.

What did you think of Foley’s comments? Should WWE be mad at him? Let us know in the comments below.
