Women's wrestling will keep Mick Foley watching WWE Raw, headed to Steve Austin's podcast to talk about it

In the early morning hours of Monday, November 30, Mick Foley doubled-down on his frustrations with his former employer's flagship show and overall television product.

After joining the chorus of angry fans after the Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) and the fallout edition of WWE Raw, the Hall of Famer declared on his Facebook page he was giving the show one last chance.

So what's verdict?

What did he like on a show that so many found to be more of the same from last week and the string of shows that have sent Raw and SmackDown to record low ratings?

Cynics are saying that this was all just Mick's latest ploy to keep his name on the dirt screens (and, if so, mission accomplished), and even that the focus on the ladies is simply him doing some preliminary promotion for his daughter's in-ring ambitions.

Seems to me that Mama Foley's baby boy is just like a lot of us - desperately wanting quality stories within which our favorite performers can shine, from a company who's delivered just that in the past (and who dominates the market to such an extent that we can't fullly break the habit of following them even when we're not enjoying what they're offering).

We'll get a chance to hear him flesh out his thoughts beyond a social media message at some point in the near future, since it seems he'll be chewing the fat with another Legend who's often critical of the WWE product in the near future.

What do you think of Foley's overall stance, and decision to keep watching? Looking forward to hearing him yak with Stone Cold about Raw?
