For the past few weeks, Bray Wyatt has been using Mick Foley's Mandible Claw to attack his victims in the ring, and Foley is happy about it.
When Foley made an appearance in WWE last month at the Raw Reunion, he was attacked by Wyatt's The Fiend, who used his own Mandible Claw move to bring him down.
The Fiend then continued to use this move on his victims when he attacked them, as he used the same move against Finn Balor at SummerSlam, as well as on Jerry 'The King' Lawler last week.
During a recent interview with SportingNews, Foley was asked about Wyatt using the Mandible Claw and if he sees it as passing the torch to a new superstar.
He said: "I think that's for everyone to think for themselves. It's all about the follow-up. And I have been very happy with the follow-up as well. I'm really happy to see him using the move and to be shifting gears of that character to make it intriguing and exciting television.

"The willingness to go from one extreme to another like the gooey, zooey of the Firefly Fun House and willing to embrace that nerdiness which then amplifies the evil nature of the Fiend character."
Foley noted as well that he does see character similarities between himself and Wyatt.
He said: "I do. The willingness to go from one extreme to another like the gooey, zooey of the Firefly Fun House and willing to embrace that nerdiness which then amplifies the evil nature of the Fiend character."
Wyatt as The Fiend is one of the hottest characters in the WWE right now, and it could pay off for him big after Clash of Champions.
Earlier this week, the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, which will be hosting Hell in a Cell on October 6, tweeted out that Wyatt will take on either Seth Rollins or Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship on the show.
Rollins and Strowman are currently booked to face each other for the Universal title at Clash of Champions on September 15, but it looks like Wyatt could face the winner for the title the following month.News Now - Sport News
