He's a big fan...
In an interview with USA Today, Mick Foley said that Bray Wyatt is one of the performers in WWE who reminds him of himself. Here are highlights:
On his finest match: "My finest match is probably in 2004 against Randy Orton at Backlash. It was a personal triumph for me, I had come back after four years out of the ring and I kind of let myself down. I had the perfect opportunity [before Backlash] in Madison Square Garden teaming up with The Rock against Evolution, and I just kind of dropped the ball. I didn't give the performance that I should have, and the next month I came back and redeemed myself. It was a match of personal redemption. It's not one that I talk about very often on stage, but that's my personal favorite."
On if he thinks CM Punk will be back: "There's no telling. He marches to the beat of his own drummer. I will say he doesn't respond to me. I used to be able to reach out to him. I think he's just cut off all communication with people from the business, and if he comes back, it'll be on his own terms, and I respect that."
On his favorite wrestlers in WWE right now: "There are a few people. Bray Wyatt reminds me of myself. He's one of my favorite guys. He's really a mesmerizing interview, and he makes great use of his physical talents. He definitely makes the most out of his unusual frame. Love to hear him cut a promo. I love CM Punk's work on the microphone and in the ring. Daniel Bryan has just been a phenomenon, I hope he heals up and comes back at 100%. Dolph Ziggler, he's unheralded, hopefully he'll get another run. There's so many good wrestlers on the rise. I just saw an NXT match between Natalya Neidhart and Ric Flair's daughter Charlotte that was just off the charts."
