Fish Got Squished

That pretty much summed up Thursday night's game. The final score score was 36-7 and it wasn't even that close. The Dolphins' one successful drive was the first one of the second half. It was good to see some fight, although I suspect that head coach Dan Campbell went all Mick Foley on some fools at halftime. It was cute to see Miami come into this game with some confidence after...

Tennessee fans love football – too much to patiently wait out a rain delay.  During Tennessee’s season opener at home against Bowling Green on Saturday, one Volunteers fan made the gutsy (and very unwise) decision to rush the field during the weather delay in Knoxville and found out what Mick Foley must have felt like when the Rock gave him the clothesline from hell and sent...

Mick Foley shares incredible picture of classic 1998 match

I wonder if WWE legend Mick Foley, AKA the man behind Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack, woke up yesterday morning, checked his TimeHop app, and thought “Holy hell, I almost died seventeen years ago.” That is what a lot of people thought when they watched him, portraying his Mankind character, get thrown off of a cage TWICE. Yesterday was the seventeen-year anniversary of the...

Mick Foley on his latest comedy tour, the tooth knocked out in Hell in a Cell and more

Mick Foley knows how to reinvent himself. Professional wrestling’s hardcore legend did just that in the ring, developing characters that ranged from barbed-wire-bat-wielding Cactus Jack to the lovable Mankind, who wore his tube-sock tag-team partner, Mr. Socko, on his arm. Now, he has done it again. Outside the ring, Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy has found success as a New York Times...

WWE WrestleMania 30th Anniversary Card: Part 6

Over the last couple of weeks, I sat down and compiled a 30 match card to celebrate 30 years of WrestleMania. This is not the top 30 matches in WrestleMania history. This is a 30th Anniversary Card, and because it’s a card and not a list, no person appears more than once. That is the challenge of compiling such a card. And here it is, our quintuple main event.
