Moving on to TNA wrestling
Mick Foley will make his TNA debut sometime after his WWE contract is finished on September first. What his status, or t.v. character with the company will be is unknown at this time, although he is expected to perform in some matches. TNA is a growing company and will no doubt grow some more with the edition of Foley. TNA has been struggling to say the least, competing against a company with the highest rated cable t.v. program WWE raw. Many long time wrestling fans feel however that WWE has lost touch with there fan base, and the addition of Foley may be just what TNA needs to step up and give WWE a run for there money.
