Mick Foley and Joey Ryan Respond to Controversy Over 'Test of Strength' Spot at Over the Top Wrestling Event

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/06/17


As previously reported, Jim Cornette was not happy with WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling legend Mick Foley taking part in a spot with Joey Ryan at an Over The Top Wrestling show on Saturday. During a match, Foley tried to use Mr. Socko on Ryan, only to find it blocked by Ryan’s famous genital flip maneuver. Cornette, who isn’t a fan, was asked about the match and said he was “sad” to see Foley working with Ryan on Twitter.

Mick Foley and Joey Ryan then responded to some of the controversy later today on social media. You can read a response from Joey Ryan that he posted on his Twitter account earlier below.




Mick Foley also posted about the match and spot on his own Facebook page, and you can read his full statement on the matter below.

“So last night in Dublin, there was an incident involving a case of mistaken identity, and a leapfrog that turned an innocent attempt at a mandible claw into something far, FAR more sinister! I know Joey Ryan’s #DickFlip has divided the wrestling Community in a way we previously thought only John Cena or Roman Reigns could! It has become the #IWC equivalent of the Trump/Hillary election – ending friendships, even turning brother against brother…brother! Son against Daddy…daddy! It’s quite possible Jim Cornette will never speak to me again after seeing this photo – a solid 28 year friendship over in a matter of seconds! So why, you may ask, would I participate in such a potentially divisive penile palming? The answer is simple – look at the smiles. JUST LOOK AT THE SMILES! There is a smile, literally on EVERY face! In the end, isn’t that what it’s all about? If applying the mandible claw to Joey Ryan’s genitalia last night was wrong…I don’t want to be right! Please let me know how YOU feel about this gripping problem!”
