Mick Foley was asked about the reactions from WWE Superstars who were featured as characters in his book during an interview with NewsDay.com.
“I went out of my way to talk to The Miz about eight months ago. I said, ‘Hey, how would you think about being part of a book I’m working on?’ . . . And I said: ‘I warn you.

And I just created a role for a giant elf.”
