Not really, for the printed sets.  Mike Foley never liked him, heh.

I remember he was slated for Rev. 2 as one of the Extremists, and he said 'Is this really the best we can do?'  :D  I believe he became Terry Funk instead.

(We sketched out something a while back for Hardcore Holly, but we haven't run low enough of guys to get around to him, and now there's SO much new talent, I doubt he'll make it.)

I am disappointed we didn't get a new Foley, but we had like three by that time. I usually just imagine that Mystery Wrestler is like a CAW version of the player and go from there. I would have liked to see some of those cards in virtual. Eddie could use some help.

Kinda hope we get Hardcore Holly and Crash Holly someday though, seems like they're the new Val Venis.

Haha, not really.  Eddie was top tier, or close to it.  Latino Cheat's set got a few of the cards planned for that set in Virtual 1.

Since I wasn't around, was Virtual 1 made up of a lot of cards that were either scrapped or planned for the next set that never happened?

As possible, and we've filtered in what we could since then.  But noted earlier, Foley didn't share any future plans, so there wasn't a lot of it.

Was Orlando Jordan ever considered he had a pretty significant role on TV during the RD run. And why was Gail Kim and Molly Holly tagged together on the same card, were there plans for individual cards for them?

No plans for Jordan that I was ever aware of.

IIRC it was just going to be Molly but Gail came in at the last minute, so they doubled-down by putting them together on the same Superstar.
