How Mick Foley feels about wrestlers drinking each other’s blood in modern wrestling

During his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley noted that he hadn’t seen the “Hangman” Adam Page vs. Swerve Strickland Texas Death Match but did give his thoughts on wrestlers drinking each other’s blood in modern wrestling…

“I wish I could say I’ve seen it. I heard it was really epic. I wish people wouldn’t drink each other’s blood in [his] day and age, let alone this one. I mean, heels used to do that. I remember even Tracy Smothers in Japan would do the deal where they you know, suck the blood out of the opponent’s head and spit into the air.”

“Maybe that had a time and place, but that time and place is over,” he continued. “Not a knock on the match, just looking out for everybody’s safety, knowing that people are going to possibly emulate what they see on TV. That doesn’t take away from the fact that the guys seemed to have a great match and really enjoyed doing it.” (quote courtesy of Robert DeFelice)
