WWE Hall of Famer and former TNA Champion Mick Foley recently discussed his name trending after commenting on the seeming disparity between AEW and WWE.
Foley originally said: “I’d like to title this video, ‘WWE – We’ve Got a Problem’ because I think you do and that problem is that WWE is no longer the place for talent to aspire to,” Mick Foley began.
“Part of it is because AEW is doing a great job of attracting great talent, proven talent, building other talents, creating storylines, but part of it is a problem of your own making.
“I think younger talent sees the way that developmental characters are cut or left by the wayside, or in the case of Karrion Kross, greatly watered down and even made a joke of when they debut on the main roster. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” Mick Foley continued.

“If I was an aspiring talent now, big-league talent with a major decision to make? I’m not sure that I would trust WWE creative to do the right thing with my career” Foley added.
“You guys did wonders with me back in the day… that was a different time, different place. If it was today, I’m not sure I would trust the powers to be with my career in their hands, and until that changes, WWE – you’ve got a problem” the Hardcore Legend concluded.
After making these comments on a Facebook video, Foley’s name began trending on Twitter, to which he replied: “LOOK WHO’S TRENDING! I guess my opinion still counts.”
