Oh my goodness, where do we begin? In our “About” section, we mentioned that periodically we’d be writing about women who kick ass, but we will be updating that to include men because we simply must proclaim our admiration for Mick Foley.
If you are not a wrestling fan, you may not be super familiar with the name. Mick Foley is a professional wrestler, wrestling with all the major organisations – World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), and most recently Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
He is known for his hardcore matches. Has he been hit in the face with a 2×4 covered in barbed wire? Sure.
Has he taken a fall from the TOP of the cage during a cage match? Yes.
Was it ever uncommon for him to spill thumbtacks all over the ring during a match, only to end up with dozens in his own skin? Nope.
