David Dexter reports that during a recent interview WWE legend Mick Foley shared these thoughts:
On Funny Wrestlers: Well some of the funniest guys backstage couldn’t translate that humor to the ring. There’s a fine line that guys use their humor for their character and guys that use their humor to define their character. I think every guy who has been successful has used humor to build their career. There was one moment in Milwaukee, where basically there were five guys in the Main Event match that could not control their upheavals of laughter. The Rock gave me an image the night before and when it was time to deliver my promo, I couldn’t get that out of my mind.

As much a part of professional wrestling as ring aprons and three-counts, masks have a long and important role in the history of sports-entertainment.
Although there’s some argument about when the first masked grappler actually appeared inside the squared circle — some say it was The Masked Marvel in 1915, while others claim it was The Masked Wrestler, way back in 1873 in Paris — masks have a special significance to the performers who wear them. They’re also pretty cool, and help add to the mystique of the already larger-than-life personas that have thrilled fans for generations.

‘Mrs. Foley’s baby boy!”
For millions of pro wrestling fans, that phrase from WWE announcer Jim Ross meant that “Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley — whether portraying Cactus Jack, Mankind or Dude Love — was heading to the ring.
The three-time WWE champion always kept fans guessing, with an offensive repertoire that ranged from the sick (thumbtacks, barbed wire and flaming branding irons) to the silly (a sock puppet named Mr. Socko.)
Ricky Steamboat, Sgt Slaughter, Jim Ross, and Mick Foley just a few moments ago confirmed their plans to be in Las Vegas for the 2013 Cauliflower Alley Club reunion! Mick Foley, due to scheduling conflicts will only be at the reunion Monday ONLY. Mick will attend the wrestling show Monday night and pay tribute to the late Paul Bearer.
This is sure to be another sell-out reunion. We are getting down to crunch time on the ticket reservations. We are getting closer to the ticket cut-off due to the fire department permit for the occupancy of the Banquet room. So if you haven’t reserved your ticket yet, you need to do it NOW!
There has been over 800 room nights booked at the Gold Coast Hotel through the CAC code if that tells you anything!

Mick Foley was announced Friday as the first name for this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class. Foley started rumors regarding his induction months ago stating if he were to be inducted he would rather it be this year with the induction ceremony taking place at Madison Square Garden. Foley, 47, attended shows in the Garden before going on to become a pro wrestler and one of the central figures during WWE’s Attitude Era when the company enjoyed its most profitable years. His induction coincides with the release of his new WWE DVD, “For All Mankind – Life & Career of Mick Foley”. Following the official announcement Foley tweeted, “Thanks to all of you who sent messages of congratulations, and to my fellow wrestlers, who have kept my cell phone jumping. It’s a big day!” Foley has said he would like Jim Ross or Terry Funk to induct him. Remaining Hall of Fame tickets go on sale today and by the time you read this will have sold out.

The very mention of the word “hardcore” conjures up such Extreme icons like Tommy Dreamer, Raven and, of course, the one and only Hardcore Legend himself, Mick Foley. But Gerald Brisco? Mighty Molly? Members of The Mean Street Posse? All of these competitors had one thing in common: They all held WWE’s Hardcore Championship.
