This past Monday’s WWE Raw, which featured the return of The Rock, drew a 3.14 rating. I’m sure WWE officials are happy with that number since the show ran up against the 2013 BCS National Championship Game which saw Alabama destroy Notre Dame.
Wrestling News World.com is reporting that Ric Flair is scheduled to be a part of this Monday’s Raw (which is the 20th anniversary show).
Mick Foley was interviewed by Pitch.com. Here is some of what Foley had to say:
How much of your act is wrestling stories?
Almost all of it. And if it's not a wrestling story, I try to base it on something that I learned during my 27 years on the road traveling the world. Basically, if people have enjoyed my books, which had plenty of non-wrestling stories in them, they'll enjoy the shows.
Are you finding that you enjoy this as much as wrestling?
It's not a vast departure. It's just an extension of wrestling.
Do I enjoy coming to Kansas City as much as I enjoyed winning the WWE title 14 years ago? Nothing's going to stack up to that. But I really enjoy it. I'll be cutting way back in 2013 on the number of dates I do. I believe KC is the first show where I'm doing multiple dates. It's usually one and out. The idea of doing four here, that means that it's different. It's not the type of show that casual comedy fans wander into. So it's really going to take some participation from my wrestling audience to make these shows work.
Your name has been thrown out as the first inductee in the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame class. What would that mean to you?
It would mean that the rumors that I started spreading about it were effective. It would be a huge honor, especially in Madison Square Garden. WWE does a great job of trying to induct people in geographic areas that mean something to them. For me, being inducted in an arena that I specifically used to hitchhike to and take trains alone to would be a great honor.
