Hardcore legend Mick Foley is no stranger to speaking about his views on WWE failings or where the company can improve and has been at it again this week, calling on his former employers to use and him other legends to bring more original content to the WWE Network.

Foley is currently working to secure WWE approval over content for his 'I Am Santa Claus' documentary special, which aims to portray the lives of the men behind the famous costume in a project the 48-year-old put together back in 2012.

The man with the famous Mankind moniker has shown skills across a variety of mediums, including a place on the New York Times Bestsellers' list, and believes the WWE should get in touch about a comedy project now it has the reach of an online network, but won't be holding his breath.

He told Wrestling Inc: "I've accepted that WWE is too busy with their network to send someone out to check it out.

"To me, it seems like a simple sidestep to a new form of entertainment. For whatever reason, I don't think it's going to happen. It makes perfect sense, but the less said about it the better.

"I'm tired of waiting for them to find out it's a perfect marriage. I can't make them and continue to do my own thing. I'll continue to pursue my own [televised] special."

Foley ended his most recent term of employment as on-screen talent with the WWE in March after a particularly fierce attack on creative direction last year, but the door has always been open in the past for memorable legends to come and go.

The WWE Network has made a solid start off the back of a strong Wrestlemania and a massive library of past events and classic matches, but Foley has a point in that its the original content that will keep fans coming back for more.
