Mick Foley briefly spoke with Newsday. He was asked if smashing a TV in protest of how WWE has treated Daniel Bryan made him feel better to which he replied:

“A little bit, but once the family forbid me to do it live, or in the house, the act lost most of its power. But technically, I did break a TV in protest — even if my swing lacked a follow-through, a habit developed through hitting thousands of fly balls to my son in our backyard — where a follow-through would have meant pulling the ball to left, into the neighbor’s yard.”
