Mick Foley Turns Down Dean Ambrose feud, explains why in recent blog post


Mick Foley recently wrote a new blog on his website addressing Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) star Dean Ambrose's constant attacks of him on Twitter.

Essentially, Ambrose has been running an angle, presumably of his own volition, in the hopes of a big feud with Foley to kick start his run on the main WWE roster.

But Foley isn't taking the bait and he made that very clear in his blog post. Here's a snip:

"Sports-entertainment has to involve a certain amount of respect and trust. It's pretty obvious Dean Ambrose doesn't have any respect for me, my requests, or what I have done in the wrestling business. Therefore I can't place the slightest amount of trust in him. Has anyone wondered if I'm feeling better following the concussion I spoke of in that December 2010 TNA Impact promo with Flair? I'm not feeling too much better. I tend to have two types of days when it comes to that muted, under-water feeling I spoke of in that promo - bad and worse. I'm just not the same guy who took 11 chair shots from the Rock in 1999. I haven't been that guy in a long time. Given my history of concussions, I would have to be a fool to place my future in the hands of someone I don't trust. Perhaps I do have another decent match left in me. If so, it will be with a guy like Dolph Ziggler, who might well be the best worker in the business, and just needs that ONE little something to allow the WWE Universe to see how talented he really is. Or a guy like the Miz - one of the best heels of this generation. Say what you want to about Miz, but the guy is damn good at what he does. But Dean Ambrose? No. I may not have the power I once did in the business, but I still have the power to say no to things that just flat-out seem wrong. Like trying to put Dean Ambrose on the WWE map. A few weeks ago, it seemed like an interesting challenge. Now, it seems like an insult. A few weeks ago, it seemed like cutting-edge stuff. Now it just seems like bullshit. He is a very good talent. He has those supporters in high places. Let them wrestle him. Maybe they can put him on the WWE map. Good luck."

Foley also implied in his full blog post (read it here) that Ambrose has friends in high places who think he's got a bright future in the business and it's only a matter of time until they rocket him up the card.

But it won't happen thanks to a "The Hardcore Legend" putting him over. No, if Foley has one more good match left in him, he would rather do his best to put over a guy like Dolph Ziggler, who one could argue is far more deserving than Ambrose.

Then again, seeing as this is the pro wrestling business, Foley's comments could just be an extension of the feud and it could all be one big work, even if it doesn't feel like one.
