Mick Foley turned to his Facebook handle and uploaded a short video clip, addressing the current situation which WWE creative team is facing and how the young talents are suffering because of it.

Mick Foley says the younger talents are at maximum risk in WWE

The hardcore legend spoke bluntly about the current scenario of the ‘Development Program’ in the WWE and how it is affecting the young superstars.

He also heaps praise of AEW for giving the younger superstars and developing new storylines that keep people interested. However, Foley thinks AEW is half responsible for WWE’s latest decline, the other half is WWE itself.

“Hello, this is hardcore legend, Mick Foley, I’d like to title this video: ‘WWE – We’ve got a problem’. Because I think you do. And that problem is that WWE is no longer the place for talent to aspire to. Part of it is because AEW is doing a great job of attracting great talent, improving talent, building new talent, and creating new storyline. But part of it is the problem of your own making.”

Foley also said that if he was part of such a developmental program, then he would seek shelter somewhere where he could use his talent. Eventually, Foley added WWE is trying to fix the things which aren’t broken.

“I think younger talent sees the way that developmental characters are caught or left wayside. Or in the case of Karrion Kross. Greatly watered down, then make a joke of when they debut him on the main roster. It’s [WWE] not broke, don’t fix it. If I was an aspiring talent now, I’m not sure if I would trust WWE creative to do the right thing with my career.” Foley concluded.
