In a short video posted on his Facebook, Hall of Famer Mick Foley explained how looking from what we’re watching on TV now, WWE is no longer the place that young talent aspire to be at because AEW is doing a great job attracting both young and proven talent.
“Part of the problem is of your own making,” Foley bluntly said, mentioning how developmental talent in WWE are looking at how they are treated when it comes to main roster. Foley name dropped Karrion Kross and how he’s portrayed on Raw and how he was made a joke when he made his main roster debut.
“If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it,” Foley said. “If I was an aspiring talent now, big league talent with a major decision to make, I’m not sure that I would trust WWE creative to do the right thing with my career.”
Foley admitted that they did wonders with his career back in the day but that was a different time and if it was him now, he wouldn’t trust the powers that be with his career in their hands.
“Until that changes, WWE, you’ve got a problem,” Foley concluded.
