Backstage Update on Mick Foley & The 2012 WWE Hall of Fame

Nick Paglino

Mick FoleyMick Foley is not on WWE Chairman Vince McMahon's list for the 2012 Hall of Fame, although that could change depending on who else is going to be inducted.

"The writers got to pitch their choices for the Hall of Fame, and Vince seems to have several people in mind already this year," a key WWE insider told WrestleZone exclusively earlier today, "Mick Foley is not high on Vince's list for 2012."

We were told, "if some of Vince's other ideas don't pan out, Foley might be added on, but he won't be the main attraction for the Hall of Fame this year no matter what. Vince brought Foley back into the company because he was impressed with Foley's commitment to charity work, but as you've seen on TV, Vince has a lower opinion of Foley as every day goes by. It was the same when Vince made sure JR (Jim Ross) got re-hired. The moment JR signed the new contract, Vince regretted keeping him. It's like Vince just wants to lock these guys up so they can't play with others, and it's always Vince who accuses other people of not playing well with others."
