It Came From YouTube: Mick Foley smashes a TV with a baseball bat!

Mick Foley destroys a perfectly innocent, defenseless little TV in protest of Daniel Bryan not getting a decent push.

He did this because.. um… because…

Well, I guess he did it because he wanted to use the smarks’ OUTRAGE to try and get some attention for himself.

I guess it worked since we’re featuring it right here…. on!

    He did promise to throw a brick through his TV if Bryan didn’t win the Rumble before all the outrage came out, and part of the mainstream coverage of the outrage was to his original threat, and follow up outrage on his Facebook wall (plus the tons of retweets of his initial reaction to Bryan not being in the Rumble). So, he isn’t jumping on a bandwagon, he was pretty much on it with everyone else from the start. He just didn’t do the brick into the TV thing immediately because he didn’t want to have to deal with the neighbors calling the cops in the middle of the night.

    Cane Vince

    To be fair Mick had just been watching the old WCW amnesia angle and just snapped. Plus since Mick & Daniel have scraggly beards he got confused and thought he was getting screwed over again.

    I gotta say: If this whole “revolt” thing championed by Foley on Twitter is a work, it’s a good work. Lots of people are legitimately annoyed. Granted “I don’t want to give money to your company” might not be the most efficient way to get people to give your company money. But it still feels rather organic. He even had his kid, Dewey in on it.

    I’m very skeptical myself, but the one thing that makes me think this is all a shoot is it’s too perfect – WWE has proven itself so incompetent over the years at doing this sort of thing, that what if it isn’t? What if the WWE did actually just book itself the worst Rumble ending since Vince won it himself, and they didn’t have plans to change it, and actually send Batista to the WM Main Event? It’s beyond comprehension that they’d be that blind. But then again, why not? They’ve failed to put on a compelling product for 10 years now, and been supporting all of Trips’ friends for all that time. Why wouldn’t they be that blind?

    Eh, either way: i’m not giving McMahon any more money.

    Still not entirely sure this is a work… the clean loss to Wyatt for example makes me think that they are possibly keen to keep the lid on Bryan’s push, similar to what they did with Ziggler when he was getting over (though Bryan is clearly more over).

    At the same time, we’ve seen it time and time again that WWE can just job someone out when they want to limit someone’s push, and I don’t know if aside from the Wyatt loss they’ve really done that with Bryan – they could have completely jobbed him out / limited his TV time. I guess we won’t really know for sure until we see what match he is in at Wrestlemania! Either way, the Rumble was booked poorly – have Bryan get screwed out of the rumble if necessary, but to leave him out just to me seems to have disappointed casual and diehard fans alike. So Foley’s reaction is partially justified I’d say – one of the poorest rumble matches ever sadly.

    If it’s a work, I think it’s stupid on WWE’s part. If it’s legit, I think it’s stupid on Foley’s part.

    • Preparation Triple H says:

      How would it be stupid on Foley’s part? Not trying to start an argument, just curious as to what the reasons would be.

      • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

        I just thought it was self-serving of Foley to do this (basically he was doing it to get attention for himself and using the Daniel Bryan thing as an excuse). Just my opinion though.
