WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley took to his social media channels Monday to comment on the 18-year anniversary of his brutal street fight against Randy Orton at the 2004 Backlash pay-per-view.
Citing the match as a “Personal highlight” during his solo run in the WWE, Foley speaks highly of the brutality that took place during this match.
18 YEAR AGO TODAY. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again—THIS was the best match of my career. I can’t emphasize enough how proud I was of this match and how much respect I have for Randy Orton as a worker and as a person. Backlash 2004 was truly a night to remember.
On the RAW, RK-Bro lost to Street Profits in a non-title match. They will compete against the SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos at the upcoming WrestleMania Backlash premium live event.
