PLAYERS: Mick Foley
Mick Foley is the first member of WWE's 2013 Hall of Fame class. The New York Post broke the news of Foley's induction, which will take place April 6 at Madison Square Garden. In an interview for The Pitch magazine, I asked Foley what it would mean to be added to WWE's HOF. "It would mean that the rumors that I started spreading about it were effective," Foley said. "It would be a huge honor, especially in Madison Square Garden. WWE does a great job of trying to induct people in geographic areas that mean something to them. For me, being inducted in an arena that I specifically used to hitchhike to and take trains alone to would be a great honor." Tickets for the hall of fame ceremony go on sale Saturday.
