As I sit here at home watching TNA iMPACT, I find myself re-running the nearly 10-minute (or a bit longer) face-to-face interview in the ring with Ric Flair and Mick Foley.
In these days of scripted interviews, this was a non-scripted delight. You could tell how each of them worked off the other, trying to get the upper verbal hand. Certainly they knew where they had to wind up — plugging their live match next Thursday which will be a “Last Man Standing” battle on iMPACT. The spontaneity was incredible.
I would love to see the WWE unelash the same opportunity to wrestlers (okay, “sports entertainers”) like Edge, Chris Jericho, and others who could do this so well. Give them and idea — like in the “old days” and a timeframe — and where it has to lead to — and let them go!
Flair and Foley — two masters who made WRESTLING fans proud tonight!
