Mick Foley On Former WWE Superstar Top Dolla: To Me, AJ Was Money

Mick Foley believes WWE dropped the ball with Top Dolla.

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was a recent guest on The Wrestling Inc. Daily to discuss a variety of subjects. When speaking about Hit Row’s Top Dolla (AJ Francis), Foley believes he was money and that WWE did a disservice to him in how they presented his character.

“I’ll throw a name out, AJ Francis. To me, AJ was money,” Mick Foley stated. “Big powerful guy, a wealth of charisma, he’s got a rap album out. I asked AJ if WWE took issue with some of the lyrics. AJ has got some strong opinions, he’s a proud black man he makes that case known with his lyrics. I think it’s a great album, he has an incredible knack for putting words together, great promo guy. He said, ‘I don’t even think they know I have an album.’ My career took off when Bruce Prichard overheard me talking to Shawn Michaels about this childhood dream I had to be Dude Love. Bruce went to Vince and said, ‘this guy has a much more interesting real-life story than the one we’re featuring, the fictional story.’

“So, when I did the sit-down interview with Jim Ross, that’s when things really took off for me in WWE. Because, Vince became aware of everything I had to offer,” Foley revealed. “I just think if you have someone in developmental and you’re paying him and you’re looking for stars of the future and you’re not aware of all the assets they bring to the table. You’re doing a disservice to the talent and the company.” (H/T: Wrestling Inc.)

Mick Foley and Top Dolla worked together on the A&E show WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures.
