Mick Foley’s WWE Contract Expiring Soon; Update on His Future

Mike Killam

Mick FoleyWWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley announced on Facebook this morning that his contract with WWE was coming to an end soon. However, Foley is optimistic about the future, and says that he will continue to work with the company going forward. 

My official contract with WWE runs out soon, but we have mutually agreed to continue to work together on a case-by-case handshake deal – the same way I did some of my best work (remember the 2004 Randy Orton program) with WWE in the past. The only minor difference (other than not getting a weekly check…ouch) is that I will work prospective WWE dates and projects around my schedule, instead of working my schedule around prospective dates. With the success of my live shows (thanks everyone) I needed more flexibility in my schedule. But WWE has shown some interest in partnering with me on these live shows in the future, and a WWE produced, first-class, multi-media one-man Mick Foley show has always been my long-term goal. As WWE showed with the roll-out of the new network, when they go into something, they go ALL in – and I'm crossing my fingers, hoping they'll go ALL in on a fall 2014 15th anniversary "HAVE A NICE DAY" production – even if it's just for a limited run.

Foley noted that he will be attending WrestleMania XXX with his family, who will be in the crowd with "great seats for the big show".
