When it comes to discussing the current state of WWE, the views which are aired from legends of the industry are valued greatly, and Mick Foley is often one to share his thoughts on the latest goings on in the company.
Following the most recent WWE pay-per-view event; Royal Rumble, which took place in Philadelphia last Sunday night, Foley was one of many to air their concerns about the Royal Rumble match itself.
Several WWE followers both in attendance and watching worldwide on the 25th January, had been eagerly anticipating the match which has so often created many memorable moments within WWE.
This year's bout however, is likely to be remembered for the wrong reasons as there were superstars WWE fans had hoped to appear who were nowhere to be seen, and the people's favourite Daniel Bryan lasted mere minutes in the match when many thought he was a genuine contender to win.
As he often does, Mick Foley took to his Facebook page to reveal his concerns about the pay-per-view event:
"I'm not worried about this year's #Wrestlemania. I can envision a number of scenarios in which Roman Reigns - WWE Universe and Brock Lesnar - WWE can have an epic confrontation...No, I'm not worried about Wrestlemania. But I am worried about the Rumble."
Foley's thoughts therefore are interesting to note, as a lot of the negativity which came about following the Royal Rumble match was because of Roman Reigns winning, which Foley actually sees as a positive result.
He continued: "I wasn't mad after this year's Rumble. Instead, I was sad. Sad, because the Rumble, which has been one of the most entertaining #WWE events of the year for so long, might just be in danger of becoming "just another show", and going the way of "Survivor Series" as a good idea that runs it course and ceases to be relevant."
Foley went on to say that although he did not actually see the Rumble itself this year, he did not need to in order to be aware of how disappointing it was.
Having picked up his children from the event, Foley says he witnessed the negative atmosphere by seeing how people were walking out of the Wells Fargo Centre 'with limited verbal interactions'. It appears as if those who were in attendance at the Royal Rumble last weekend were much of the same viewpoint as those who watched it live back home - they expected a lot better and it just did not happen.
What are your thoughts on the Royal Rumble WWE fans, is it heading towards being "just another show" like Mick Foley said?
