WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has named the three stars who were once upon a time excluded from WWE’s strict dress code.
WWE likes to convey a professional image and in recent years has implemented a dress code for its WWE Superstars to adhere to when attending shows or on company business.
But what is good for the goose isn’t always good for the gander, and adherence to the dress code can depend on your status in the company and your character as Mick Foley recently explained.
Speaking on his Foley Is Pod show, the Hardcore Legend revealed he was once part of a trio allowed to dress as he appeared on WWE television and laments the fact he now gets spoken to if he isn’t in his finery:
“But at that time I knew the company you know, I had that grace period where I was allowed to wear everything I wanted, anything I wanted. They thought it felt like the character’s dress code era. So it was like there was three guys that didn’t have to adhere to the dress code – Undertaker, Cena, and me.”
“Then when I get talked to about now I have to adhere to it. Now it feels like a big part of me has been taken away you know? I feel like the guy whose wife is using his body.” h/t Inside The Ropes
