Mick Foley Recalls Being "So Angry" With AEW's Jon Moxley He Couldn't Stop Swearing In Front Of His Family
Don't mention Mick Foley's children
While Dean Ambrose - now AEW's Jon Moxley - debuted on the main roster with The Shield at Survivor Series 2012, WWE originally wanted to debut the former WWE Champion in a match with Mick Foley.
Ambrose confronted the WWE Hall Of Famer ahead of WrestleMania 28 and their rivalry continued on social media but never culminated in a match as Foley wasn't medically cleared to compete.
Recalling the feud on Busted Open Radio, Mrs Foley's baby boy revealed it made him "so angry" because Moxley kept mentioning the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion's children, something Foley considered off-limits.
"This angle with Moxley, it required me to go to some dark places. The problem was, I couldn't get out of them. It wasn't like when I would go cut the Kane Dewey promo in the basement of Paul E's cameraman while his mom was doing the ironing and my wife and two kids are at a park two blocks away, and I would come out of there fresh as a daisy and I am ready to go. When I would get into the storyline, I couldn't get out. It was like this cloud," Foley began.
"I don't want to be overly dramatic, but it was around me all the time and it was affecting me. Especially when I saw Moxley writing about my children. So, I come up to him at a TV taping with Dusty. I asked Dusty if he would come up with me, just so I could talk to him. I said, 'hey man, whatever you do, please stop mentioning my children.'
"He thinks it's an angle, whereas I am 100% asking him as a father not to mention my children. He reads it as, 'turn the volume up on Foley's children.' So the next tweet that comes out is even worse, more foreboding for the future of my family. Now I text him and say, 'hey man, I was not joking,' and I think okay, now it's over," he continued.
"The next tweet is even worse. I am blowing a gasket every day, I am cutting more F-bombs in front of the family than they have ever heard in the entirety of their lives. I am so angry at this guy."
Despite the text, Moxley continued to tweet about Foley's children because he was in the United Kingdom and didn't see all of the messages from the WWE Hall Of Famer.
