Mick Foley is out

There was some discussion about Foley being fired by the Network at the end of Impact this week.  Rumors swirled that the angle wasn't simply another example of TNA/Impact Wrestling's scatter shot booking style.  According to Jason Powell,, Mick Foley is done with TNA.  Furthermore, Foley's contract expires in September, but he will not be an on-screen character while his contract runs out.

Foley himself had this to say on his official Twitter (realmickfoley) earlier today:

I pushed hard for changes I felt would benefit Impact Wrestling. I can understand how some would interpret that as difficult to work with.

It will be interesting to see where Foley lands.  He was a solid color commentator for SmackDown, but apparently didn't enjoy that job.  Foley, much like Flair, is a guy who can still get an angle over with his promo ability.  Much like Flair, Foley is a guy I have zero desire to see in the ring. 

All-in-all, this is another in the long line of TNA failures.  We'll see where they go from here.  On the brightside, they still have Hogan, Bischoff and Dixie Carter....
