Foley took to his Facebook page to comment on the rise of Owens and he gave him a lot of praise, but he also stressed one concern.

"I'm afraid that when wrestling's history book is written and the topic of top wrestlers with unorthodox body types is discussed, that my name will no longer be first on the list!" -Foley on Owens replacing him

Perhaps a bit of a strange concern for a WWE legend to have but concept of an unorthodox body type has been touched on by Owens in recent weeks.

Owens revealed that he had been told previously that he didn't have the right physic to be a superstar and of course everyone remembers the night Foley the WWF/E Championship despite WCW's best attempts at ruining it by reminding fans of his past with the promotion.

Foley was full of praise for the current NXT Champion however with the WWE legend claiming that if Owens had of been around in his day, he would have made him a better wrestler.
