Mick Foley not bothered by Undertaker WWE Hall of Fame speech omission

Foley joked that he forgot to mention his own wife during his Hall of Fame speech.

Mick Foley isn't bothered that he wasn't mentioned in The Undertaker's WWE Hall of Fame speech.

Last month, The Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as the headlining member of the 2022 class. While introducing The Undertaker, Vince McMahon mentioned Foley when running down a long list of Undertaker's past opponents, but Undertaker didn't talk about Foley during his speech.

Foley's daughter Noelle tweeted about the omission: "That was a great speech, but I’m very surprised there was not one single mention of my dad and their legendary matches together. Obviously I understand it’s difficult to fit everything into one speech and remember every single person you want to mention. But it just would have been really nice to hear my dad’s name mentioned."

Foley was asked about the reaction to the omission during an appearance on the In The Kliq podcast. Foley said he wasn't hurt that The Undertaker didn't mention him -- so no one can be hurt on his behalf.

“Well, listen, I forgot to mention my wife during my speech, so I'm not one to lecture anybody about who they should and should not include in their speech,” Foley joked. “I was not there in those formative years and his [speech] was more about friendship and support. We had a great rivalry, but he didn't mention Rock or Austin, and he and Austin had some classics as well. So if I'm not hurt, no one can be hurt on behalf of me.”
