Cactus Jack: Hi fans, it's Cactus Jack. No, no today it's just Mick Foley, speaking from the heart about the things that have gone on here in the past several months and how I feel like somehow we've undergone a small misunderstanding. Because I...when I think about what's gone on, and the feelings that have been hurt, including mine...and I know Tommy (Dreamer)'s suffered some personal injury, Terry Funk also. Well, it hurts me......and I feel like I can talk to you fans because I am hardcore, and because even when I was with different...other organizations, the hardcore fans seemed to gather around me because I was hardcore, and we seem to have more than just a fan-wrestler relationship.
No, I'm not going to be with you people this next coming show. Although I'd like to because I have commitments elsewhere.
But I'd like to feel that I can be there in spirit. I'd like to feel that I can help...and so I'm going to go out on the line here and ask you for a personal favor. I know I don't deserve it because of my actions. But I'd like just......just......start all over...and tell you fans, I think part of the problem is......well it's Tommy and it stems from a very good part of his heart where he wants nothing else but to make you fans happy...and I know how it used to hurt him when you called him names and said he wasn't hardcore...and I think he's gone over the edge trying to prove you wrong and I think it's reached a point where, you know, he's suffering some moral and physical consequences for his action...and I'd like to see that stop...and you have the power to do that ECW fans, by just, you know......not encouraging hardcore behavior because I know Tommy, and deep down is a nice, sensitive kid...and he'd no sooner hit someone with a frying pan, than I would.....you know, hurt a harmless animal...and I don't want to hurt animals...and I know Tommy doesn't want to hurt people. So when you go out there, and he goes out there......Tommy has some darn good amateur skills...and I think that it's about time he started showing them...and I think it's time, the fans accepted Tommy for the sweet, sensitive guy he can be...and not this, this guy who's trying to hurt me...and then he drags the hardcore out of me because I am hardcore
...and now we're at a place where everything is in it's place...I'm hardcore. I think we're back to where we used to be......where the fans accept me and forgive me for some of the things I might of said...and so just in conclusion, just......don't encourage Tommy, and I think that we'll all be better off. So until next time, let's put up those fingers. BANG!! BANG!!

Cactus Jack: So now that I've been forgiven for all my stupid mistakes by the ECW hardcore fans, things are back to normal. Isn't that right? Isn't that right Charlie? (brings out a plush animal) ECW!! ECW!! How about you Charlie?
Cactus Jack (speaking as Charlie): ECW!! ECW!!
Cactus Jack: Say goodbye to all the hardcore fans, Charlie.
Cactus Jack (speaking as Charlie): Buh-Bye!! Buh-Bye!!
Cactus Jack: Buh-Bye everybody!! BANG!! BANG!!
