Mick Foley spoke on his podcast about the allegations levied against Vince McMahon in the civil suit filed by Janel Grant.

His belief in me made all the difference in the world from just being another guy to being, you know, one of his main guys during that Attitude Era. You can tell if anyone who has listened to a single episode (of his podcast) knows the great fondness that I have for Mr. McMahon.

I don’t know all the facts but man, it’s really ugly. I feel very similar, just like that ‘dead inside feeling’ the way I had in 2007 after the Benoit murders and man, I hope it doesn’t take away from people’s amazing memories of all the things that Mr. McMahon created or helped create including my character and the programs that I was in and was such a big part of it.

I wish he really just stepped aside, you know, the first time and we just heard a little hint of these allegations.

Foley, who first wrestled for the WWF in 1986 as an enhancement talent, signed with the company in 1996 and went on to become a three-time WWF champion and member of its Hall of Fame.

Foley has been an advocate for survivors of sexual assault and volunteered for RAINN.org for many years.
