Default Why is a legend like Mick Foly tossed around in the wrestling business?

He used to be a full time wrestling in 1 company, but over the last couple years it hasen't been going so well he has been tossed around like a piece of monkey crap, going from company to company.

He even wresteld for companys you might never even heard of.

House Of Hardcore (Tommy Dreamer)

Juggalo Championship Wrestling

Impact Wrestling

And soon enough he will leave the WWE again.....

He's accomplished everything he wants in the wrestling business, he's basically a freelancer now just fitting in for roles in different promotions

Foley's never been the byproduct of one promotion. Back in his heyday he made a name working all three of the mainstream American promotions, along with Jim Cornette's short-lived but promising Smokey Mountain Wrestling, along with wrestling in Japan. The man's built a legacy by being a nomad. There was a time before internet when his death matches in Japan were a thing of legend. So I don't know what the heck you're talking about. Foley's had a prominent home in WCW, ECW, and WWF, along with working with touring Japanese promotions.

Did you live in the 90's? Because everyone was everywhere, including big names like Flair, Nash, Hall, Hogan, Jericho, Guerrero, Douglas, Waltman, Benoit, Raven, and eventually Steve Austin. About half of those guys have worked in lowly bingo halls and fair grounds or even midget promotions shortly after leaving the limelight. Why can't Foley do the same and not catch any crap for it?

Mick Foley has no interest in being a Full-Time Wrestler anymore. Mick Foley wrestled at Cactus Jack in a lot of Professional Wrestling Promotions before you were even born. In the United States alone, I saw Cactus Jack wrestle for Memphis Wrestling, The Universal Wrestling Federation (UWF), Continental Wrestling Association, World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), The United States Wrestling Association (USWA), World Championsbip Wrestling (WCW), Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling before he made his way to The World Wrestlnig Federation. This does not even include the overseas Professional Wrestling Promotions that he worked for. Professional Wrestlers used to work for one Professional Wrestling Promotion for several months and then move to another Wrestling Promotion. That's the way Professional Wrestling used to be.

Isn't he spending most of his time doing stand up comedy and writing children's coloring books?
