Recently, Mick Foley spoke to Sky Sports where he revealed that he didn’t think his first WWF title reign was a good idea.
“It meant so much to me on a personal level and I think I’m right in saying the fans have voted it the best ever Raw moment, I’m excited to have been part of so many big matches on Raw. But I saw me as champion as a mistake. I didn’t think it was a good idea. I always thought the challenger should be chasing the champion, and The Rock was a great champion. But it turned out to be the best thing for everybody. It was not seen as a big moment at the time. I saw it as a big moment for myself because I’d never dreamed of being champion, but we all thought it had been an exciting conclusion to a good show. We didn’t realize the force of the show until the ratings were revealed the next day.”
