I think it puts itself on WEEI dot com and politics a lot of effort you many choices on the Internet for audio entertainment we're glad that you selected his playbook. This particular piece. Mick Foley joining us here I would mr. resonant we got a summary distributed so I literally don't have to line. He goes through best known authors to -- from. Reality television star and Connecticut that happens we had hit you need on a night to crystal freezes here I was actually showing why I mean because you on and actually watch the wake up. -- best selling author of we've got. WB champion longtime history talk about we literally don't attack the united -- of oh yes great moments of my career. Happen not at this -- -- that's game one of the best dancer and lives of homeless Stony Brook university cancer. Graduated the big time oratory is through your shirt and I made it so proud and I have that adrenaline rush. -- -- -- at that and not the case that you have a triple net buildings and everything you think. -- cup before we get to everything else writing where. The -- of companies which. This is something I want to. You know what. It's on -- seriously. Even if somebody's not -- I'm not just in this I don't throw not a compliment around like -- do. It -- you might get their bad manhole covers. And you are you a really good. That I think. Commentary -- about plastic we get you couple that here. We're on the beat -- but it's great stuff and I would love to have you these. -- like shows on the area you know you're preparedness and up -- its natural. -- -- -- I -- a good promo and especially hard when it encompasses with a loud that. Right hopefully they can a lot of emotions. Like got older I've found that it was much easier and much more read the realistically be that make them laugh and I couldn't do that scary stuff. Look at intimidating anymore. I've found I enjoyed that that happened a microphone in my head of the comedy club whether a hundred people or. Or a thousand people is is a -- assuming that it goes well like you -- do this job. I didn't write out a back to be really good job and not have a good showing on any particular -- Was the easier to do it after all the things that writing this in the coming up. Not unlike the other feature it -- -- He's really putting. Putting yourself all you out there would be easier to resist that because they write in writing the book and if this wasn't he autobiographical this if you especially when you. Into the novel this is. Putting yourself out there for a lot of rejection in the world that -- good drive on that drives I got in here. American public in general they love to see people seeing. They will receive -- daily. And I believe I'd love to come here about this country. Sad statement that people would about a building her -- It's hard rock but I believe this is Chris Humphries rejuvenation. That Americans -- -- -- guys like that translate. Two. To comedy. It can be tough and I had a couple of top events one night about double that for example was pretty tough and very small minority. Noise models and positive but that would you blurred and and the next night in Belfast Belfast will play hooked up to bounce back. I had maybe one of the best shows. Any type of my career certainly the reaction I got it felt. Combined obviously -- -- here now it's up people wanna hear from wrestling stuff and you've had to try to find those and we'll find those. Think as Athens awkward or been sort of a funny way forward to sort of bring wrestling fan if you we'll invite challenge for me. You make up 98 to 98 point seven. -- old boyfriend Greg we'll make the -- bit of special. While ought not making -- non fans feel like they're not welcome. Out of my way to -- to prefaced by a development that now I'd -- the bellicose billionaire. That's for I try to make it out well for -- Event and for the most part of nonsensical out of their way they would seek -- out at the show and tell me they enjoy themselves -- they also. They can -- say they didn't think that would indicate it did they -- wouldn't it have been a harder time now to deal wrestler. In these it was -- back fifty years ago. -- the height of your career you're reading Dave -- really -- Keller -- -- -- reading newsletters is always criticism -- but now. Now to be in the environment where it's you can't let anything -- and everything is just. Knew instantly on -- other -- -- have who really have the -- done well yeah I've been one of the big challenges that that it be creative paths are Eddie -- wrestling. But that we got the obviously biggest company's biggest challenges. Force themselves to let things breathe and not rush things some things too much. There was. It's it's where Jeff Jarrett became and that -- Jeff Jarrett and to get a within six weeks it was an image and then they kept it averages. Ravishing -- -- doing that yes the woman. The audience that was about two years before there was a -- off. Direct route using women in the audience as they waited they've made that statement they made it part of almost like via. Popular culture so it yeah that's that's one of the biggest challenge. An example there being. These Steve Austin -- fifty years ago you had a year and half you know newseum on it was very organic milk -- -- -- -- No I know pump pretty well I know well enough. Called -- first name that won't do it here in my -- showed off L I think. And everybody don't -- -- on the final hole I feel about the other guys they can't get away with saying it whereas I actually went out of of that. Though. If you -- that you want so I've got that going for me it's nice to -- You were in Miami and I through people anyone's -- would. Wants to know what was your mind if you watched. You were as big -- you are with Tripoli with the undertaker Shawn Michaels with the -- -- Boston it's anybody who watched the three of them. Put on to steal the biggest show areas which the he would yet they are back commentary for. What was going through your mind watching your years but that -- An exclusive for you. On day they played JR music. Take a little siesta. Because. And heard a little bit because I had to ask you to an art but they are and I might give commentary I honestly thought I had a lot that I could -- that match without making it about me and I don't know if that message that we receive but. For whatever reason it decided that I would not. Be part of that match anyway I was still a big part of -- maybe weekend back -- the big fundraisers for rain which. Which did very talented very well but we -- it -- winner having literally -- time life which I hope will result -- up. It even more fundraising next year but when I saw what I saw that without even knowing that it was going to be the show -- was. Although history dictates never bet against the undertaker wrestle mania. At least not the last several years. It was I was -- -- I wish -- been part of will regret not being part well. Let me then this is the what I want bandwidth anyway which is. After they if you kind of place under that umbrella. After all the years -- that you accomplished and nobody pushing themselves farther to speak their place in history. Think you did. As we sit here now in the -- that if -- notable constituent April 2012. Are you satisfied. That you have accomplished what you want to accomplish and make that place in the history of the business was. The only appeal leak before you go into the hall of fame which spent. Seriously. Others. Dee Snider put up a really good point it is you -- memoir that he himself had. I went over it line by line and verse that that likely -- that inspiration. And he talked about the fact that it -- lead singer in a span viewers that like that wrestler or that comic saying listen. There's a reason you should pay attention -- -- -- just one guy with a microphone wrote it one guy out there and they'll ring. Actually have to pretend to be humble lost eleven up with yourself which borders on the illusion. The truth they all have to have autism Gupta think your good not to do it right they give it up -- you like vital I don't think you're good at anything. That -- in the spotlight honest I think I had it in 2000 I've accomplished. Everything and then that I set out to do so you know whether or not to make decisions on the part of the the biggest match here that's not. Stop fans feel about. Stand up. Right here at Newark, New Jersey after. Well now I actually -- -- these guys sitting right here just instantly access to about it. If I spoke too soon and. On that. Were worth really -- before that we showed -- this which they are with some other people who hasn't realized. We can't posted in after the games all the fun that we had tonight there and keep doing commentary. That's a four million views as an opportunity to have fans have little insight and we've known him for fifteen years now -- this -- but for the first time these actions. Oh yeah you have a microphone again and I can figure you can play by play like -- that went -- in Boston but really a -- but listen death. Your comments that you really can't shift -- out that that camaraderie you have demonstrated -- It's classic and you know that my son do we haven't seen -- recently slept over -- out like. Fourteen years ago actually went out was Dallas after restoring the Celtics -- Eastern Conference finals in 2002 public and that wasn't the first time that the the last time you saw him he wasn't I think it was I don't think I'm. That one of my other Beers when I walked in with my daughter now people think I'm step and out of my wife. The lousy team Jesus exporter you you people and I'm taking 36. -- -- a few people still react if he -- a we'll see do we do you still react to movies you know it's funny I'll give xxx for example for please -- no room. Twenty years I walked in with my two younger kids -- and that we gave you -- you have you know we -- -- at all. And he looked at which ones which one do we like. Potter we've Alex. This is nearly six it's a couple of years ago we got the kids kind of caught at times more because people think my daughter's. We're going to be a little girl red dress brighter I doubt that imported by Iraq. Well -- fully you do that -- puts itself was our our guests here our little tiny speedy pod my daughters was meeting former governor wrong I said at all my own two weeks. What I text various sweet and it's for that that a lot lack of technological know how. And and apparently she hasn't done it I'm sure that something it's probably happening but just in -- We honor them right now or in any case thanks much -- it's up the only that are yet -- -- knowing. -- utilities commentary during the game tonight and a real Mick Foley and really the real medical yeah.
