Mick Foley Opting Not To Sign WWE Legends Due To “Extremely Weak” Video Game Payoffs

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has been outspoken in 2014. Foley was critical of the WWE not using Daniel Bryan in the Royal Rumble, his thoughts on CM Punk to name a few topics. Foley took to his Facebook page to explain why he isn’t renewing his WWE Legends deal. Foley also had an ambassador contract with the company, but that expired a short time ago.

“I’ll be writing in more detail about this in the next week or so, but it would be fair to say that, despite strong sales, I have found the payoffs for the past two video games to be extremely weak – in the 25% range of what most talent was expecting,” Foley wrote on Facebook.

Last year, the explanation had something to do with the video game company going bankrupt – a real shame for me, since I was heavily featured as three characters from the “Attitude” era, complete with voice work. I haven’t heard this year’s explanation yet, but, personally. I think the #WWE just wants to see if the talent will accept a far lower percentage than had previously been given.

“If so, it would probably be a good business move for #WWE, since very few current wrestlers are going to jeopardize their standing with the company by offering resistance – and most legends will probably come to feel like anything they get from merchandise is better than nothing. As for me: until I hear a valid reason, I’m opting out.”

Do you think Foley should have renewed his WWE Legends deal?
