Foley Says He Encouraged Flair To Jump To TNA, Hardy

Matt Boone

The following is a small excerpt from a new blog from TNA star Mick Foley:

"I knew there would be some big things in store for fans, but I was astonished to hear that Jeff Hardy was heading our way. I heard the rumor the night before the big show, and felt that if it were to turn out to be true, it would have to be considered among the biggest TNA coups in history; one of the top wrestlers in the business, at the absolute peak of his popularity, joining up with TNA is absolutely huge. Speaking of huge, how about the response in the Impact zone when the Nature Boy emerged from the limo? I’ll bet there are some people out there wondering how I personally felt about the arrival of the "Nature Boy" into TNA, given our history. Well, believe it or not, a couple nights after Christmas, I had a phone conversation with Ric Flair, during which I strongly reccomended he make the switch. I’m not sure what difference, if any, my words had, but I think Ric will feel right at home in the "Impact Zone" and on Spike."
