Mick Foley Comments on CM Punk’s Departure, Daniel Bryan, More
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.10.2014

- Mick Foley recently appeared on Live Audio Wrestling, here are the highlights…

On CM Punk's WWE departure: "The last time I touched base with him was after the Rumble and I don't want to discuss what he said exactly. I'll just say I wasn't shocked when he decided to leave because he and I – there is a deep, mutual respect there and we like each other. I would say to him after I watched him at a house show and I would say "geez, you don't have to work that hard every night" and he would say "if I didn't I wouldn't be here" and I respect the work ethic and I understand if you're hurt and you're not enjoying yourself that it's not the place to be."

I would hate to see CM Punk turn into what I did where my philosophy became "good enough is going to have to be good enough" and it wasn't that philosophy that helped me succeed, to get me into the WWE Hall of Fame and I kind of regret going through a few years where things had to be that way. I don't think Punk wants anyone to see him at anything less than his best and I know he'd been frustrated for a while. He's a pretty outspoken guy and in the end he'll make the decision that's best for him. What I said and I'll repeat for you guys, if he can reconsider one thing it's not to let whether or not he's officially the main event dictate how good his match is. If he had a big match coming up at WrestleMania I would encourage him to at least think about taking advantage of that. In 2006, in no way, shape or form were Edge and I the main event of WrestleMania but we had a great match…I didn't walk away from that WrestleMania thinking it was any less special because we weren't the feature so that's the only piece of advice I'd give him, not to let those words "main event" dictate how important the match is but if your heart's not in it, it's not in it."

On not being in the WrestleMania 15 main event and comparisons to Punk and Daniel Bryan: "There's a piece of video, I think it's been lost now, on the WWE (website) where I actually was asked about the match after I had lost the title to The Rock in February where it was obvious I was out of the WrestleMania main event picture and I didn't realize how much it meant to me, what a blow it was and I broke down, I just started crying for real, on the interview. I didn't realize it until that moment that "man, my one chance is gone". I'll be honest Daniel Bryan is more over than I ever was."

You have to seize these moments in time, I had confidence that even if that wasn't my moment I was going to be okay and I had the ability, my character blended with a lot of guys in the ring. But I think this is a special moment and the WWE risks losing it if they don't capitalize on it. I'll be watching as a fan, I still love the company and by and large I still love the product, but I will be watching eagerly and hoping for the best possible outcome. I did receive confirmation that I will be involved in three or four events during WrestleMania week so I will be there, I will be part of the company that week and I want what's best for the company and in my opinion that involves Daniel being a big part of that show."
