Mick Foley and WWE agree on new case-by-case handshake deal


WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley wrote in a message on Facebook that while his WWE contract runs out soon, the two sides have agreed to continue to work together on a case-by-case handshake deal.

“The only minor difference (other than not getting a weekly check…ouch) is that I will work prospective WWE dates and projects around my schedule, instead of working my schedule around prospective dates,” he wrote.

Foley noted that his one-man live tour has gotten WWE’s attention and the company has shown interest in partnering with him to deliver the shows, something which has always been his long-term goal.

“My kids LOVE WWE, and the prospect of their being part of Mania, without Dad being part of WWE was a downer,“ he added, saying that this time he splashed the money for good seats and won’t be watching the show on a TV monitor in the “friends and family” suite.
