Mick Foley is best known for his militancy in the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E), where he has worn the role of Mankind, Cactus Jack and Dude Love. Before joining Vince McMahon, he fought in both the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and the Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and in both teams he gained the reputation of hardcore wrestler, especially in the latter.
Furthermore, between 2008 and 2011 he fought in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). He is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of WWE, and participated in the main event of WrestleMania in 1999 and 2000 (as a special guest referee in the former).
He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2013. In a recent interview with Wrestling Inc, he discussed Edge’s return at the Royal Rumble: “I loved that Rumble; I really did and I’ve been tough on Rumbles in the past.
Rumbles like this past do a lot to keep it in its position as probably the second biggest show of the year. It’s bigger than SummerSlam at this point. I loved return of Edge and the emergence of Drew McIntyre as a main event Superstar.
I’m 54 now and I got started 34 years ago and I maybe jump off my couch three times a year in response to what I see. Edge came back and was clearly in incredible shape”.
