As this year’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view also celebrates 20 years since Mankind and Undertaker’s historic Hell in a Cell match at King of the Ring 1998, Mick Foley has some things to say about the pay-per-view on this week’s RAW.
Unfortunately, Elias doesn’t want to hear it. Not just because he wants to continue on with his concert—people just keep interrupting him—because as a kid, he watched that match 20 years ago. But now, he just sees Foley as a “broken man” who’s been singing the same old song all these years.
That insult elicits a “MR. SOCKO” chant from the NOLA crowd, which might just prove Elias’ point. But instead, Foley says he’s actually here not to talk about the past but instead the future.
Not “the future” in terms of Elias’ standing in WWE but the immediate future of the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Somehow, some way, Mick Foley was able to convince Stephanie McMahon to allow him to be part of this Sunday’s show. And while he would have been content as a special ring announcer or even a timekeeper, he’s not just going to be sitting on the sidelines: He will be the special guest referee for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship defense against Braun Strowman, inside Hell in a Cell.
