Mick Foley Comments On Matt Cardona's 'F*ck Mick Foley' Shirt From The Wrld On GCW
"He reached for that brass ring, grabbed it, and was asked to return it."
Mick Foley has given his thoughts on Matt Cardona's recent choice of entrance attire.
At last weekend's 'The WLRD on GCW' pay-per-view, the former Zack Ryder made his entrance wearing a Foley-esque flannel shirt with 'F*** Mick Foley' printed on the back. This wasn't Cardona's only method of getting heat from the Hammerstein Ballroom crowd, as his entrance also mimicked that of ECW legend The Sandman.
Foley has since taken to YouTube to share his views, saying:
"The truth is, from a personal standpoint, I was happy for him. It made me laugh because I felt like Matt was done wrong in WWE. He reached for that brass ring, grabbed it, and was asked to return it.
"Ultimately, everyone who leaves a major company has a choice to make when they hit the independent scene, and that choice is: "Do I just do the same things I did, the things that I was known for, or do I reinvent myself?" I call that the Drew McIntyre route, the road less traveled.
"That is what Matt Cardona has done. He’s completely reinvented himself, and in doing so has become one of the most enjoyable and valuable assets on the wrestling scene. Knowing that I’m playing just a small part in that reinvention, a tiny part, that makes me happy. And in conclusion, f*** Matt Cardona."
Cardona emerged victorious at the event, defeating fan favourite Joey Janela.
