Mick Foley Details A Moment Of Clarity He Had About His Hell In A Cell Match With The Undertaker

"I do. I do. Anything that has my name that I own on it. Yeah, I get a little bit. But I mean you're talking like of a half a cent of a half of a cent but it's still something."


Why the Billy and Chuck gimmick wouldn't work as well now:

"It wouldn't be as surprising because there's so much diversity and now we have transgender bathrooms and all this other stuff. So nowadays it's like 'Oh you're gay? Oh that's awesome.' It's not that big of a deal. When we did it, it was still kind of that way but it was still a behind the door kind of thing. When we did that, wrestling became instantly real because I had so many people that said to me 'I knew you were gay. I knew it the entire time you worked here.' That's how much they bit into it."


When the New Age Outlaws will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:

"I think they'll put me and Brian in as strictly tag stuff, then it will be a few years and they'll induct Hunter. When they induct Hunter, the next year it'll be the DX thing."
