Shawn Michaels is one of the most famous wrestlers in WWE. He is known as Mr. WrestleMania, thanks to his outstanding performance in the Wrestling Ring. During the day when he was ruling the wrestling scene, his entry into the events was a major thing. On the other hand, Mick Foley never really thought about going with the elaborate title and entrance. However, in a recent interview, while talking about WrestleMania, the actor revealed how Shawn put extra pressure on the wrestling stars.
“Keep in mind that when I retired the first time, in 2000, you didn’t really need to have a defining WrestleMania moment on your resume to be a fully-realized legend. I really credit or blame Shawn Michaels for putting that additional pressure on people because,” he said during an interview with GalaxyCon. He said that when the wrestlers started calling themselves Mr. WrestleMania and they continued to perform well, they too felt very sensitive due to pressure.
“When he started referring to himself as Mr. WrestleMania and having show-stealers year-in and year-out, it started being mentioned. Maybe I was a little hyper-sensitive that I hadn’t had that moment,” Wrestling Inc. quoted him as saying. During further conversation, Mick was remembered his WrestleMania XIV tag team match against New Age Outlaws for the best Mania moment.
Mick said goodbye to professional wrestling in 2012. Subsequently, he played the role of WWE RAW General Manager from 2016 to 2017. The wrestler was the one who added the 24/7 championship to the WWE universe.
