When WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley returned to RAW and introduced the 24/7 Championship, results were – mixed.
While some people now feel that the chase for the 24/7 Title, especially the segments including R-Truth and Drake Maverick, are some of the most entertaining parts of the show, the announcement was met with jeers and boos.
Foley talked about introducing the title during the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast with Jason Agnew. In the interview, Foley seems to be taking some of the blame from crowd’s initial reaction to the title.
“I wasn’t happy with my promo. I thought it was the worst promo I’ve given in ring, well I guess there were a couple of worse ones when I was GM. As far as the one off, I think it was the worst I’ve done in a number of years,” said Foley.
According to Foley he could feel the mood of the crowd and knew when the anticipation turned into disappointment.
“The moment I said 24 hours a day, seven days a week, I felt that buzz. At that point if I pulled out anything but the Hardcore title, it was going to be a big letdown. So when I pulled out this new title belt, I felt all the oxygen leave the room,” he said.
According to Foley, despite the fact that he used to be given free reign in his promos, he is now usually given a script when he makes a television appearance and it can be difficult for him.
“Sometimes I’m handed scripts and it’s difficult. My memory is not what it used to be. It’s a different process,” he said.
Foley’s last appearance in the WWE was during the RAW Reunion where he was supposedly going to announce that he was going after the 24/7 Title himself but was instead attacked by Bray Wyatt.
