WrestleMania X7 is among the finest wrestling PPVs of all time. It had all of it, from nice wrestling to superb moments and excellent storytelling. At the occasion, WWE CEO Vince McMahon wrestled his son Shane in a No Disqualification match. But the plan was to not have Shane within the match, however truly Mick Foley.
In 2000, Mick Foley loved what he thought was the final run of his wrestling profession. The Hardcore Legend misplaced to Triple H in a career-threatening match at No Way Out however returned for one evening at WrestleMania 2000. After that, Foley took up the commissioner’s position in WWE and butt heads with Vince McMahon.
Their rivalry went to the subsequent stage as soon as McMahon had Foley fired and crushed up, just for Foley to return on the evening earlier than WrestleMania X7 and declare himself the particular visitor referee.
The authentic match was Foley vs McMahon, however the Hardcore Legend explains why it by no means occurred in an interview with Inside the Ropes.
“I was really a stickler for details. I didn’t like holes in storylines, and I thought the idea of coming back and demanding my job back was not realistic,” mentioned Foley.
“It’s his company, he’s allowed to fire me. We have 200 people here right, maybe one of you would’ve thought a tiny bit less of me if I had exercised my right to come back for that match.
“I could’ve easily come back and it would have been a big match and it would’ve been a good money match, like a really good money match.
“What it came down to was that I really at that time took that retirement stipulation seriously, and I was hellbent on never wrestling again.”
According to Foley, not taking that match strained his relationship with the boss. He even claimed to name him Mr. McMahon and never Vince.
“If I’d known that I was going to come back another fourteen times and make a mockery out of that stipulation, I certainly would’ve cashed in in 2001 and wrestled Vince.
“It wouldn’t have necessarily been a great technical match, but we would have had a heck of a storyline. I used to call him Vince. You know, I called him Vince and now I refer to him as Mr McMahon, even when I see him. ‘Hello, Mr. McMahon.’
“So it hurt that relationship, cost me a lot of money, and would have been a good match to have on a great WrestleMania.”
Instead of Foley vs McMahon, we noticed an entertaining match between father and son, the place the son drove a trash can into his father’s face to win. Also, Linda McMahon receives the pop of her life as she rises out of her wheelchair and comatose state.
