WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley wrote the following on his Facebook about the match with Charlotte vs. NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks at last night’s WWE NXT live event in Philadelphia:
A HAPPY NIGHT FOR WRESTLING HISTORY
I feel so privileged to have witnessed history last night; watching #SashaBanks and #MsCharlotte tear the house down in an inspiring WWE NXT main event at the Tower Theater in #Philadephia. Wrestling fans always have a handful of matches they just can’t forget; those special matches filed with moments that leave lasting impressions. For me, this main event between Sasha & Charlotte is one such match.
The crowd was great – enthusiastic and creative, but respectful of both women, and seemingly appreciative of the significance of the occasion. The women were outstanding – and there was just that something special in the air – that special brand of magic that can turn a great match into a lifelong memory.
So why, in a post about a monumental night for #WomensWrestling, am I featuring a photo of a bunch of dudes? Because look how happy we are? I’m like Ebeneezer Scrooge on Christmas morning type happy here – having just learned that the ladies would be in the main event. My daughter snapped this shot of Triple H taking an impromptu selfie with me and Joey Styles. When I got back to my seat, I looked at Joey and said, “we’re both adults, right.” Joey nodded in affirmation, “Then why”, I asked “do I fee like I’m 10 years old?”
Wrestling can do that to a guy sometimes.
