WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has recalled the promo that WWE stars accused him of making Randy Orton look weak with.
At Backlash 2004, Randy Orton defeated Mick Foley in an epic Hardcore Match for the Intercontinental Championship. The match was viewed by many as a career-making performance for Orton at that point of his career.
During the buildup to the showdown, the two stars told the story of Foley being washed up with Orton getting the better of him on multiple occasions leading to their encounter.
Speaking on the latest Foley Is Pod, the legend discussed the segment in which Orton spit a loogie on Foley’s cheek that led to a passionate promo that many in WWE felt made the third generation star look weak.
“The promo which was not popular with a few of the heels backstage that thought I made Randy look weak. Because I stopped and I cut a promo on how I had been spit on, pee’d on, thrown up on, pooped on, and all of this, and that I remember he did look fearful as I was cutting that promo. I said, ‘I was bleeding in six continents when you were still latched onto your mother’s breast.’ I guess some of the main players thought I made him look weak. But remember the big picture — you have to. Remember how Triple H acknowledged Cactus Jack as a threat?
“If you brush me off after everything you’ve done to me, I was taking a major beating week after week after week and you don’t give me a hope spot? Besides, you’re getting the win, and so now, you need to acknowledge the threat in front of you in order for your overcoming that threat to mean anything. If you’ve beaten a guy who you’ve built up to be nothing, then you’ve beaten nobody. I know a good promo when I hear it, and I think I even alluded to it in the 2006 book. Ask Randy Orton how he thought that promo went.”
Mick Foley has also recently revealed that the signature rocking chair that belonged to Bray Wyatt was inspired by the Hardcore Legend himself.
Since this rivalry, Orton has become a legend himself with 14 world title reigns and spending decades at the top of the card. The Legend Killer is currently out of action with a serious back injury.
