Mick Foley: I would love to have a match with Undertaker at WrestleMania ...

... but there are about five other opponents that make more sense.

With the rumor mill churning everyday and "Mick Foley to WWE" getting the most play in the past couple months, the man himself has finally just come right out and said yes, he will eventually be making his way to Stamford to sign a contract.

With that out of the way, question number two always revolves around whether or not he will be the next man to challenge Undertaker's streak at WrestleMania in 2012.

The answer:

"I'd love to be asked; if I were asked, I hope it would be fairly soon because I would need a long time to get in shape for that. If it was his last match and/or mine, I wouldn't want to embarrass him, the company, or me. It would make sense, but there's about five other opponents that make sense for him and I could think of a couple bigger marquee matches for Undertaker at WrestleMania than me."

I don't trust that either of these two could adequately judge their own capacity for bumps. Meaning, these two would go bat shit crazy and have a match that no one would ever forget.

Read this piece to know what I'm talking about.

But I would disagree with Foley's assertion that there are a couple more marquee matches for him. In fact, all things considered, I'm having a hard time coming up with a worthy opponent. Maybe you can help?

After the jump is video of Foley talking bout all this and much more.
