The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Mick Foley asked for his release from TNA, which is why the "fired" angle was run on Impact Wrestling this past Thursday night.
The report notes that Foley cited creative differences as to why he wanted to be released from TNA, so the decision was hastily made by TNA to pull the plug on The Network storyline and have Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff "fire" Foley. It should be noted that Foley is still under contract to TNA, and has not been officially released from the company.
