THE END OF AN ERA

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that, as of yesterday, I am officially no longer the General Manager of "Saturday Morning Slam." While I am saddened by the end of my illustrious run as the main man behind the stratospheric success of "Slam" – truly some of the finest weeks in company history, I also know that I can look back without regrets. Whether it was dancing with the Prime Time Players, dancing with The Usos, dancing with Broadus Clay and Sweet T or singing "Danny Boy" with Shaemus, I held absolutely nothing back; leaving a piece of my soul behind with each and every historic 30 minute episode.

OK, seriously: I enjoyed having the opportunity to do the show, enjoyed being a regular part of WWE TV for a while, and am grateful that WWE honored the contract for the entire year.

So, with my "Slam" contract completed, I am no longer under contract to WWE, but look forward to working with them in the future. I did an appearance for WWE today at a NY Islanders game, will represent them at a Knicks game this week (pretty sure these are unpaid appearances, although WWE can feel free to surprise me with a little check-a-roonie in the Foley mailbox if they want to) and will continue to represent WWE in a number of community relations appearances in the coming year. 

This is probably good timing for Mrs. Foley's Baby Boy, as he has been calling out a lot of what he considers to be "bad WWE booking decisions", and has been more critical of the product than usual since Daniel Bryan did not win the 2014 Royal Rumble match.
