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.
Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of theScore Television Network and the Baltimore Sun spoke with Mick Foley recently. Here are the highlights:
- Being in his 16th WWE video game and the “family moment” he remembers most playing games with his kids
- Being in a serious segment with CM Punk and how much he wanted this to happen
- In Foley’s opinion where CM Punk ranks among the main event players in WWE history
- A new idea Foley is pitching that would see him put on a comedy show, tagging along with WWE Pay Per View events, like he did with Summerslam this past August
- “A MIZerable Christmas” and more books on the horizon
