WWE: Mick Foley all but confirms participation in WrestleMania 32?

Published 2 Comments

Now just over three weeks away from the big event, the WWE Universe is definitely in the midst of WrestleMania fever.

The company's top stars and storylines are all geared towards the 32nd incarnation of the event set to take place at Dallas' AT&T Stadium on April 3 and, despite some discontent about the matches announced so far, fans are eager to see which legends turn up.

That anticipation will ramp up a little further after one such figure appeared to all but confirm his participation in this year's Showcase of the Immortals.

Speaking in an interview with Sports Illustrated, Mick Foley was quizzed about the recent speculation linking him to a role on April 3. It certainly sounds like he will be there judging by his response:

"There is a rumor that I will be participating in the show,” explained the Hardcore-era legend. “I’m not sure how just yet, but I’ll try to add to the excitement of WrestleMania.”

After a report earlier this week from The Wrestling Observer linked Foley and Shawn Michaels to 'Mania 32 fans have been hoping it is proved correct. 

Although the WWE is yet to confirm it - and likely won't in order to preserve the surprise factor - Foley's comments are another indication that the Hall of Famer's WrestleMania days aren't yet behind him.

Of course, having been out the business for a fair while now, any participation will likely be on the mic or as an interruption rather than in the ring itself. Still, this year's event will definitely be a better place with Foley involved in any capacity.

With fellow legends such as The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin also in line to play a part on 'The Grandest Stage of Them All', the WWE is certainly doing its best to put on a show worthy of its record-breaking ambition.

Big names

Whether the old-timers coming back for cameo roles is enough to make up for high-profile absentees such as Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and John Cena, however, is uncertain.

As things stand Foley and co. would be joining a match card that is headlined by the Heavyweight title clash between Roman Reigns and Triple H.

Another returning star in Shane McMahon is also on the bill as he battles to win control of Raw in a match against The Undertaker, while Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar will compete in a No Holds Barred Street Fight.

The other matched to be confirmed so far will see Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Charlotte take part in a triple-threat match for the Divas title.
