Former WWE superstar and Hall of Famer Mick Foley has spoken this week about the time he accidentally sent WWE chairman Vince McMahon a text criticizing the direction that the company was taking with Daniel Bryan.

Accidental McMahon text

The message was sent in light of the fact that Bryan was not entered into the Royal Rumble in January this year. Angry with the way that the former WWE champion was being treated, Foley sent a text to Bryan's then fiance Brie Bella. But unfortunately for Foley the text was actually sent to the big boss himself.

Foley is known for liking to express his opinions on WWE matters having been a former legend in wrestling, and he believes his views have weight.

"I was sending a text message, one I thought I was sending to Brie, and I told her I was going to get in touch with [Vince] McMahon," said Foley. "I rarely interfere in the course of WWE events, but when I do, I like to think my opinion carries some weight. I sent what I thought was my message to Brie, saying, 'Give Daniel a hug and tell him how wrong I think this whole thing is.' I was pretty new to the iPhone. My son looked at my phone and said, 'Dad, you just sent that to Mr. McMahon.' My next message was, 'Oops.'"

Foley's wrestling comedy tour

WWE returned to Boston on Sunday night for the big pay-per-view 'Money in the Bank' and Foley was in attendance during the festivities in Boston. These days Foley is more about comedy, and was there in the city on his 'Hardcore Legend' tour with the aim to entertain wrestling fans and non-wrestling fans alike with his unique stories.

“If you want to hear unique stories about some cerebral characters told with a certain sense of warmth, my show is the place to go,” said Foley. “It is a show of wrestling stories primarily intended for wrestling fans, but I always get a handful of people who come up to me after a show and say, ‘I’m not a wrestling fan but I really enjoyed that show.’ It’s important for me to create a comfortable atmosphere for everyone.”

Watch the short video below for an idea of what his tour is like.
