Mick Foley


The Royal Rumble Was a Disgrace!!!

1/27/2014 7:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley says last night's Royal Rumble was so badly mishandled, it was a slap in the face to wrestling fans ... all because the WWE refused to allow a HUGE superstar to participate.

Foley -- aka Mankind -- went off on social media right after the Pay-Per-View event ... blasting the org. for not including bearded fan-favorite Daniel Bryan in the main 30-man event.

"I've never felt so disgusted at the conclusion of a WWE (or any) PPV," Foley said ... "Like many of you out there, I just don't get it."

The fans at the event were just as pissed off as Foley -- 'cause when it became clear Bryan was participating in the RR, the stadium erupted in "boos" that continued for the rest of the event.

Foley -- who's still under contract with WWE (for another month) -- also tweeted, "Does @WWE actually hate their own audience?"

After the Rumble, Bryan also tweeted ... saying, "Sorry guys, the machine wanted me nowhere near the Royal Rumble match. But I thank everyone for their support."

He added, "They try to keep US down and away from the top spots, but they can’t ignore the reactions forever. Keep voicing your opinions."

As for Mick, he claims he's so upset with the WWE, he's going to throw a brick through his TV to protest. 

Stay tuned for that.

So, I actually watched the RR PPV and it was disappointing, the only interesting thing about that PPV was the match between Daniel and Bray Wyatt, the only thing they stopped booing for was when that lil bull guy came in, Sheamus return and at the end of the RR match, cheering for reigns. I am a DB fan, and I did want to see him in a match, it's like it's becoming all about Cena/Orton and someone returning. We've SEEN this crap before between Randy and John/ someone coming back. and instead of it being orton from the last time it was CM Punk. Us Fans want to see something different for a change, though Bryan is a underdog, that's what makes him entertaining, the fact that he can defeat the odds in some of the big matches he has. We're all ready for something different, for three years, we've wanted Daniel to get some sort of chance, a push if you will and it's always pushed back for Cena or Orton. So yeah people are getting fed up and speaking up about it, just like at the RR, and the night after. It's like all the big guys in the WWE are getting pushed and title shots and the ones that are underdogs, the people that deserve a shot at being top dog in the WWE, are over looked. I totally agree with Mick on that. This was the worst RR PPV ever, and it won't be remembered for the greatness, it'll be remember for it being the worst RR PPV and the worst PPV ever, unless something else comes along and takes the stop. Hopefully from here on out, the PPVs following they'll do a better job.
