Mick Foley Says Brand Split Competition is Real
Following the first week of brand split WWE TV, Mick Foley reflected on the action by posting the blog below on his official Facebook page:
MY SMACKDOWN WISH
Make no mistake about it – the competition between#RAW and #SmackdownLIVE is real. The competition between Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon is very real, and to some extent, so is the competition between me and Daniel Bryan. No one wants to be minded constantly by their own son that the other general manager is more popular than you are. But you’d be wrong if you think I want #SmackdownLIVE to fail. I think it’s fair to say that Stephanie and I – along with the #WWE Superstars – hit it out of the park (a baseball reference for my cricket-playing friends in the British Commonwealth countries) last night on #RAW. Between the incredible emotion of the Sasha Banks victory, the star-making debut of Finn Balor and the new look and feel of the show, it was a towering homerun for the #RAW team. But I won’t be rooting for #SmackdownLIVE to strike out tonight, or any Tuesday night. I sincerely want Daniel, Shane and the entire crew to hit it out of the park every week. Then we’ll take those figurative tape-measures out, and figure out whose towering homerun traveled further. If you think it’s #SmackdownLive, I’m afraid the answer is going to be NO, NO, NO! The tale of the tape will answer MICK and STEPH, STEPH, STEPH!

Joey Styles on Why Vince Pushes Reigns
Joey Styles recently did a Facebook Q&A and had the following to say when asked why Vince McMahon continues to push Roman Reigns despite the audible boos from the live crowds:
“Moms are the ones who bring kids to shows. Kids like Roman Reigns. Moms like Roman Reigns. That’s the reason. Just because some people boo him doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t like him.”
