Mick Foley urges the WWE to take big gamble on undervalued Superstar

Published 4 Comments

Football News

WWE legend Mick Foley was never short of an opinion during his time terrorizing the main roster and he has only gotten more vocal in retirement.

Despite not currently being a part of the organization, the man formerly known as Mankind continues to keep a close eye on its big decision and his social media platforms are often home to suggestions for Vince McMahon and co.

Latest opinion

While some WWE fans may not agree with him, the latest plea from Mick Foley sees him urge the powers that be to give another chance to one Superstar who has fallen by the wayside recently.

This time reacting to the recent, and hugely popular, E:60 documentary that took a close look behind the scenes at WWE, Foley was awestruck by the determination of on wrestler in particular. Adam Rose.

Adam Rose (real name Ray Leppan) was one of the main focusses of the recently aired documentary and WWE fans were left with a whole new insight into the wrestler's emotional, and very personal, story.

Raw talent

We were given an incredibly honest look into Leppan's life as how he aspires to reach the very top in order to bring the best to his family, a family that includes his son Maverick who was morn with medical issues that have required numerous procedures.

With Rose having lost almost all of his appeal in his current persona since debuting on the main roster this time last year, the WWE are certainly approaching a cross roads with the wrestler.

If they opt to reinvest their faith in him with a new, more down to Earth character that contrast sharply with the party boy image that has failed to go down with WWE fans, they could find themselves with a popular star on their hands at a time when it is very much needed. Or so Mick Foley thinks.

Real connection

Foley's suggestion to incorporate Rose's struggles to date in a new push for his character could have legs too.

The likes of CM Punk, and more recently Daniel Bryan, have shown that WWE fans love to get behind a Superstar they can really relate to on an emotional, and real, level. With both now out of the picture (Punk having quit, and Bryan in injury hell) there looks to be a spot open.

The question must be then; are theWWE willing to hit the re-set button and give Rose another push? And would Leppan be willing to share so publicly his powerful story away from the ring?

WWE fans: Do you agree with Foley, should WWE give Adam Rose another chance? Let us know in the comments section below...
