Mick Foley Comes to Planet Funk Con in 2022
Planet Funk Con is excited to announce special guest Mick Foley from the WWE to their convention in August 2022!
I'm happy to say I've been a fan of Mick's since before he was in the WWE. When I was in my 20s, a buddy of mine would buy these Japanese bootlegs to watch on a Saturday night. I remember watching Mick Foley when he wrestled Terry Funk in a Japanese Death Match. Cactus Jack (Mick) was bleeding so badly from his face that it looked like a Halloween mask. The ropes were barbed wire and they used ladders and garbage cans as weapons.
To say he made an impression on us is a giant understatement.
Hell In a Cell 1998
One of the most infamous wrestling matches in history is the Hell in a Cell match with Mick Foley (as Mankind) vs The Undertaker. They climbed to the top of the 16 foot structure and Mick was both thrown off of, into a ringside table and through onto the mat below. Despite being knocked unconscious, he finished the match – with one of his front teeth lodged in his nose.
"As God as my witness, he is broken in half"-Jim Ross, WWE announcer
