In the video, Foley noted it felt like a joke when Karrion Kross debuted a goofy look on the Raw which resembled Mad Max. However, he also appreciated AEW and how talents and storylines are seamless in the company.

“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 said in the video.

As of now, no other Hall of Famer or WWE veteran has spoken openly about the beef between the Foley and the officials. This is a chance for WWE to step up their game before other wrestling veterans say the exact words like Foley.
