Mick Foley blames Triple H, Stephanie McMahon for WWE stock plumet

Published 1 Comments

The WWE stock recently saw a dramatic fall in value after the organization completed an uninspiring television deal with NBC Unviersal.

Since then CEO Vince McMahon has come out to express his disappointment, but maintained his stance that the WWE is continuing to grow as a product.

That hasn't stopped former wrestler, and all round WWE legend, Mick Foley having his say on the situation via his official facebook page though.

Foley cited the dual roles being played out by Stephanie McMahon and Triple H as potentially contributing factors to the recent devaluation of the WWE:

"I'm not posting this...to be a smart alec, a trouble-maker or to create drama," wrote Foley.

"But, could it be - following the precipitous tumble of WWE stock, that having real-life WWE chief operating officer, Paul Levesque (real name of Triple H), Stephanie McMahon, performing simultaneous duties on air is simply not best for business."

Foley may have a point, in as much as prospective investors and the business world elite may be wary of investing in, or pricing up, an organization who's two major front-office figures (alongside Vince McMahon) are continuously seen ring side and on live shows performing to their exaggerated characters rather than sitting behind an office desk.

Of course their presence is an added element of the WWE experience but Foley is wary that those on the outside looking in sometimes fail to make the distinction between reality and entertainment:

"I'm not sure that everyone 'gets' that Paul Levesque and Stephanie McMahon are definitely seasoned and intelligent business people who simultaneously portray horrible bosses as on-air authority figures," Foley concluded.
