Mick Foley

Mick Foley has named his male and female wrestler’s of the year so far.

With the majority of 2022 firmly in the rear view mirror fans’ attention has begun to shift to who will be in the discussion to be named ‘Wrestler of the Year.’

As with just about everything else on social media discussion has been intense, with a number of stars in multiple different companies in the running.

Speaking on a recent episode of his Foley Is Pod show, Mick Foley has decided to get in on the action. Casting his eye over the wrestling landscape Foley praised Will Ospreay for his work in 2022, before giving the nod for male MVP to AEW World Champion Jon Moxley.

With regard to the best female performer, the WWE Hall of Famer tipped his hat to Becky Lynch, although she is expected to miss the rest of the year due to injury.

“I’m not picking on Will Ospreay at all right, Will has had a great year, I would say Moxley is my MVP at this point in the year just for what his presence on TV has meant coming back from my rehabilitation and willing to go anywhere and work any style, like that reminds me of like Harley Race, you know, the travelling champions of old.

So I would put Moxley up there as my as my male MVP, Becky Lynch at this point is my female MVP, even if she’s not going to probably return before the end of [the year] I don’t know. Even if she doesn’t return before the end of the year. I think what she did on a weekly basis was just so impressive that she gets my nod not just because she’s a good friend and who cites me as an inspiration, I think she did amazing stuff. But Will Ospreay is doing things that are incredible.”

Becky Lynch has been out of action since injuring her shoulder in defeat to Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at SummerSlam. Despite initial fears that she would be out for a lengthy period, Lynch suggested after the event that she’s hoping she “won’t miss much time.”

Meanwhile in AEW Jon Moxley is due to be back in action at All Out on September 4th when he defends his Undisputed World Championship against CM Punk.
