Mick Foley is the guest General Manager for Raw and SmackDown this week
Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy is back! After receiving a warm ovation from the Nassau Coliseum crowd, Long Island’s own Mick Foley said he received an invite from the Board of Directors to host both Raw and SmackDown this week as WWE evaluates who will run the shows after John Laurinaitis’ firing. With his first act as the guest General Manager, Foley revealed WWE Champion CM Punk and World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus would face Daniel Bryan and Kane in a tag team match tonight.
WWE Champion CM Punk & World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus def. Kane & Daniel Bryan
Mick Foley’s first match as the interim GM turned out to be a spectacular – and bizarre – one. Kane and Daniel Bryan let out their frustrations on WWE Champion CM Punk after winding up on the losing end of a Triple Threat Match at No Way Out. Bryan repeatedly whipped Sheamus’ midsection with some vicious kicks and The Big Red Monster dished out some punishment of his own, but the resilient Celtic Warrior hung tough and was able to make the tag when he needed to most. The Straight Edge Superstar laid into Bryan with a brutal running knee at the turnbuckle and followed with a running bulldog, but the submission specialist powered back with a big superplex.
Then, totally out of nowhere, AJ made a jaw-dropping entrance, skipping out to the ring in a Kane mask and matching outfit. After continuing to skip around the ring, AJ made her way back up the entrance ramp, leaving Kane bewildered by her creepy cameo. As The Devil’s Favorite Demon wandered off distracted, Punk capitalized with a Go to Sleep and Sheamus nailed Bryan with a crushing Brogue Kick to get the victory.
