On the possibility of his comedy show being broadcast on the WWE Network:
"I've accepted that WWE is too busy with their network to send someone out to check it out. To me, it seems like a simple sidestep to a new form of entertainment. For whatever reason, I don't think it's going to happen. It makes perfect sense, but the less said about it the better. I'm tired of waiting for them to find out it's a perfect marriage. I can't make them and continue to do my own thing. I'll continue to pursue my own [televised] special."
Foley also discussed the WWE Network.
"I need to see some of those shows on there. I've been on the road, so I haven't had that much time to catch up. I love what I've seen. I think it gives guys like me a chance to connect with a whole new audience. I think it is well ahead of its time. Maybe when the dust settles they will say, 'Hey, Maybe we do need that Mick Foley special?' The frustrating thing is once people see the show, they get and it far exceeds their expectations. WWE Network would be a perfect place to air the show to the exact audience who would enjoy seeing it. It's frustrating that it hasn't happened."
