Foley's job was never to be a main eventer. Even when he was, that wasn't his job. He was a kingmaker. Put everyone he faced over in and out of the ring. The intesity of his promos and the pain he was prepared to go through demonstrated how tough his opponents must be to beat him.
Who were the three biggest stars of the Attitude era? Triple H, The Rock, Stone Cold. Guess who put them all over?
Stone Cold's first opponent as champ? Dude Love in a couple of absolute wars.
The Rock was made by his wars with Foley.
And Triple H was made by Foley twice, first in his rise to credibility in the summer of 97, and secondly in cementing himself as a bona fide badass in 99-2000.
And if he was just a ****ing midcarder, then why on earth was his first feud in the WWF with THE UNDERTAKER?
Okay. I don't like his WWE character/persona and I think he is ****.
