Raw general manager Mick Foley kicked off this week’s show to a sizable ovation, a prepared statement in his hand.
Foley thanked his superiors, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, for the opportunity they have given him. Continuing to read the statement, he admitted that he put that opportunity in jeopardy the moment he stuffed Mr. Socko in Triple H’s mouth.
To prevent any further issues, he decided to take a leave of absence from WWE.
The fans booed the decision harshly to the point that Foley tore up the cue cards he was reading from and tossed them aside. His pride would not allow him to stand there and demean himself.
This brought out McMahon, who proceeded to dress Foley down verbally before firing him on live television.
