Mick Foley hopes to wrestle one final match, but Jeff Jarrett believes the Hardcore Legend could do much more than that.
On a recent edition of his “My World” podcast, Jarrett argued that Foley’s final match could become a spectacle with other attractions. He said,
“So many things came to mind [when I heard Mick talk of a last match.] When you did the roast of Bruce [Prichard], can you imagine a roast of Mick? A convention around it, his career touched so many promotions, Japan, Texas, Tennessee, the obvious. A lot of people forget about his WCW run.”
Foley has named Jon Moxley and Matt Cardona as potential opponents. He hopes the prospect of wrestling again will convince him to lose 100 pounds.
