Mick Foley posted the following on his Facebook page, talking about Dean Ambrose using his DDT on Raw.
THE AMBROSE DDT
I’ve been asked so many times since WWE Monday Night Ra – literally dozens…and dozens of times – how I feel about Dean Ambrose using the Mick Foley #DoubleArmDDT the conclusion of the show.
Easy answer: I love it! Besides, it’s not exactly MY DDT, anyway, I saw a young Kenta Kobashi (who went on to become an all-time great in our business) using it on a 1991 tour doe All-Japan wrestling, and thought “I can pull that off!” And so I did. I wish Dean nothing but the best with it, and hope it’s a regular part of his arsenal on his rocket-ride to the top of WWE.
I’m flattered any time I see a WWE Superstar or Diva borrow anything from the Foley library – be it a move, a phrase, or just the idea of giving fans their money’s worth each time they step into the ring.
Mark Henry on Rusev
Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald recently interviewed Mark Henry. Below are some highlights of that interview and the full interview can be read here.
“He is respectful,” Henry said. “He is a really good listener. He is going to be a guy who holds true for the next 10 or 15 years. Hopefully, his body holds up, and he doesn’t have as many injuries as I did. I know what talent looks like and who has got it. Those are the people I want to work with and against. I’m happy to be able to say I had a hand in making some moments for him in his career.”
“I really enjoyed the time and the sagas between me and The Undertaker and me and Kurt Angle,” he said. “It helped my career tremendously because it put teeth on my game. One of the things that sticks out was I did a preaching eulogy for The Undertaker one time. I had a picture of him, and I was dressed up like a preacher preaching. I was saying what I was going to do to him. Of course, he came out and choke slammed me out of my shoes. It was one of those things that made that show. I’m just happy to say being a main event guy, I was able to do that kind of stuff. A lot of people weren’t able to hold that kind of time with somebody like The Undertaker.”
