Chad: Out of all the faces of Foley [Mankind, Dude Love and Cactus Jack], if there was a fight between the three, who do you think would win?
Mick: "Probably The Dude. He'd run away, let the other two pretty much kill each other, then swoop in for the easy victory. It would be mind over matter!"
Chad: How do you feel about new acts taking inspiration from Mick Foley? Do you look on them as a rip-off or a tribute? I sometimes see bands and think, 'Man, that band just totally bit my wrist…'
Mick: "I don't really like the Mick Foley rip-odds on the independent scene, because they're just taking fans' money. That's not a tribute. But I love the idea of guys following what I've done. I had a top WWE superstar ask me about incorporating one of my offensive moves – one of the five! – into his repertoire and I said, 'Man, I'd love it!'. Stuff like that is flattering."
Foley is continuing a press tour in support of his UK spoken word/comedy shows. He has four more shows scheduled in the area, with three in London and one in Southend-on-sea this weekend. You can read the rest of the interview here.
