Mick Foley Calls Returning WWE Star A “Big-Time Player”

Mick Foley

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has nothing but good things to say about Lita, who recently stunned fans by returning on Raw to help out Becky Lynch.

On the 6th of February edition of Monday Night Raw, the main event saw Bayley take on Becky Lynch in a Steel Cage match that was supposed to happen on the 30th anniversary edition of Raw. Instead, Damage CTRL locked Lynch inside the cage and delivered a devastating beatdown meaning the match couldn’t take place, although the real reason the match was scrapped then soon came to light.

Bayley had got increasingly personal with her fellow Four Horsewoman since then, talking about her husband Seth Rollins, so when the cage door was locked on Raw, Becky Lynch was ready to fight. Eventually, Lynch was able to trap the Disarm-her on Bayley on top of the cage but the cavalry was soon on hand as IYO SKY and Dakota Kai sought to help their Damage CTRL partner.

SKY knocked Lynch back into the cage while Kai slid a crutch in to give Bayley a weapon to use. The crowd in Orlando, Florida came unglued however when Lita’s music hit and the four-time WWE Women’s Champion made her way to the ring to help Becky Lynch.

Lita dropped SKY with a Twist of Fate and in the ring, Lynch hit Bayley with the Man-Handle Slam to pick up the victory.

With rumours suggesting another WWE Hall of Famer could soon be joining Lita and Becky Lynch on the show, Mick Foley has commented on Lita’s return on Foley Is Pod:

“I’m happy to see Lita back in the fold. For those of you who may have heard about a show we may or may not be doing together [WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures on A&E]. Lita and I were always good friends, but we’d become really tight through the course of this project, and I’m really happy for her. She’s a big-time player.”

“My worry coming out of the Royal Rumble was what lay in store for Becky Lynch, but it seems like the man is going to be taking care of come ‘Mania time.”

Mick Foley also recently explained how he stopped Vince McMahon from taking a hellacious bump in a dumpster.
