Despite seemingly being unafraid of anything when it comes to competing inside the squared circle, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley explained why he refused to take a chair shot during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Speaking on a recent episode of Foley is Pod, the Hardcore Legend opened up about not saying no to anything as far as his in-ring career, but revealed that he didn’t want to take a chairshot from an untrained person on the late night talk show.
“I can’t think of one. Yeah, I cannot think of one. For example, I’ll give you an example of something that I did say no to so people know, so it’s not just a blank check. Is that when I was co hosting the Jimmy Kimmel show, they had gimmicked steel chair. And I said, But what about the rim of the chair? What about that, you know, and they were like, Oh, I said, yeah, if he misses me, it’s gonna split my head wide open. And he’s got no history whatsoever in using it. Not talking about Jimmy, Jimmy wasn’t gonna hit me.
“So I said no to a chair shot, even though it was a gimmick chair, because I was afraid, you know, I had no biases, what if he misses and I thought there was a good chance he would miss and the lip of the chair I mean, 27 stitches against Terry Funk, that opened me up like a can of sardines.”
The Miz Appeared In A Hilarious Skit On Jimmy Kimmel Live In 2021
Numerous WWE Superstars have made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talk show, and in 2021, The Miz appeared on the show to promote his upcoming tag team match with Bad Bunny and Damian Priest at WrestleMania 37.
Appearing in a hilarious skit on the show, the former WWE Champion pretended to be offering job evaluations to workers on Kimmel’s program.
Miz was at his energetic best as he even stripped off his shirt and tie in front of one unsuspecting worker. He even encouraged Guillermo the security guard to do the same. He then did his best to unnerve each participant before lights and music played as Miz cut a promo on them into a microphone.
