WWE Hall Of Famer and former Monday Night RAW General Manager Mick Foley was ahead of his time during his run with the WWE, and his many characters would have fit in excellently in today's WWE Universe.
Foley played several character on WWE TV; such as Mick Foley, Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack. During his time in WWE Foley captured three WWE Titles, eight Tag Team Title wins, and a Hardcore Championship reign as well. His legendary career was commemorated when he was inducted into the Hall Of Fame back in 2013.
During his career Foley embarked on amazing feuds with fellow WWE legend such as The Undertaker, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, The Big Show, and so many more.
He also formed one of the greatest Tag Teams in history with The Rock, calling themselves The Rock And Sock Connection. He is one of the biggest fan favorites of all time and his place in the Hall Of Fame is very well deserved.
Foley recently did an interview on Reddit AMA to answer a variety of professional wrestling topics. During the interview, Foley discussed his desire to feud with one of today's biggest stars in WWE - former Universal Champion Kevin Owens (quotes via WrestleZone):
"In my prime, I think I could’ve had really good matches with any number of WWE superstars. I think he cactus/Owens match could’ve been great, or a mankind/bray Wyatt match could’ve had some amazing build up."
Foley also discussed the possibility of writing a feud for one WWE Superstar, and the Superstar he'd like to do that for is none other than Becky Lynch, who's promo skills he believes are very underrated:
"I would love to write something for Becky Lynch. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t think we’ve seen the best of her – and her ability to dig down deep for promos is still somewhat underutilized."
