Mick Foley Explains Why He’s a “Stephanie McMahon Guy”

To coincide with Stephanie McMahon coming out of in-ring retirement at SummerSlam, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has blogged on her feud with Brie Bella, his memories of working with her and what makes him a “Stephanie McMahon guy”.

Foley expressed his delight at Raw ending with a Divas angle:

I’m proud to say that I’m a Stephanie McMahon guy. Seriously. I am. Stephanie can be such a mesmerizing presence on WWE Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. Her recent interactions with Brie Bella have been intense and exciting – and as a long time #DivaBeliever, I love the idea of ending Raw with the ladies.

Reminiscing on meeting her at King of the Ring 1998, he wrote:

I met Stephanie 16 years ago – only minutes after the infamous Cell match, in Pittsburgh, in June, 1998, when I’d been told that a WWE employee and good friend had just learned of the loss of a loved one. I gave my friend a hug, and out of the corner of my eye, saw Stephanie McMahon for the first time. I gave the young McMahon a smile and then departed to participate in the most awkward run-in/limp-in/stumble in sports entertainment history.

He also took pride in being the recipient of Stephanie’s first slap, recalling advice he gave her on how to deliver it:

It was 14 years ago that I was the first recipient of a Stephanie on-air slap. I still remember her soaking up everything around her like a sponge; looking at me as I said, “you can slap me as hard as you can – just not on the jaw” as if they were the wisest words in the world. Ms McMahon would go on to slap dozens…and dozens more over the next 14 years – as hard as she could, but hopefully never on the jaw. But hopefully, she has a special memory of the guy she smacked first. I certainly have some nice memories of her.
