The Mick Foley FAQ
Back in 1998, there were no Mick Foley tribute pages on the internet. I set out to
change that disturbing trend. Welcome to the Mick Foley FAQ. This page has been endorsed by Mick Foley
himself, so I hope you enjoy it. And lastly, I am not Mick Foley, nor do I forward any messages to him... BANG! BANG!

What happened to his ear?
March 16, 1994: Munich, Germany. In a match against the WCW champ, Big Van Vader, Cactus Jack gets his
head tied up between the top and middle ring ropes. Accidentally, Cactus slipped out of the ropes.
The tension in the tightened ring ropes was enough to tear his right ear completely off and badly tear
his left ear. Part of the right ear was iced and saved. The left required 12 stitches. He continued the
match for two more minutes before the planned ending (he lost by pinfall). Vader punched Cactus many times
in the side of his head, until his ear just fell off. The referee picked the ear up and gave it to a ring
attendant. Cactus was in good spirits afterwards with little damage to his hearing and some trouble with his
balance. Cactus returned to the ring April 17, 1994. Reports were that Cactus was planning to take a few months
time off to have reconstructive surgery on the ear, but it never happened. To date, he has shown no hearing
problems or other ill effects. Only one other wrestler has had their ear ripped off in a match (Yukon Eric
against Killer Kowalski). In an ECW interview, Cactus said he woke up in a hospital bed in Munich, German and
saw his severed ear laying in a trashcan, while a nurse said "Is this a joke?" Sorry, it really happened. Here's a picture.
The entire incident is available on videotape
Where are his front teeth?
He swallowed them. He had them knocked down his throat at a houseshow match against Sting.
Actually, no. This is what he claimed for many years. They were actually knocked out during a
car accident. For some reason, he prefers to wrestle without his 'caps'.
Whats the deal with those scars on his left arm?
Cactus Jack wrestled many barbed wire matches in 1995. In the second round of the King of Death
tournament in Tokyo, Japan. It was a Barbed Wire Barricade, Bed of Nails match against Shoji Nakamaki.
Cactus took many bumps into a barbed wire platformand the bed of nails. Another match that contributed
to the scars on his arm was his barbed wire match against the Sandman at a 1995 ECW show.
Cactus took many bumps against the barbed wire wing ropes, which teared his arm apart
In addition, getting cut by Leatherface's chainsaw doesn't help either!
What other names has he wrestled under?
Mick Foley has wrestled as the following:
Cactus Jack, Dude Love, Mankind, Jack Manson, Cactus Jack Manson, Jack Foley, and Mick Foley.
Explain the TIME.com Man of the Year voting fiasco from 1998!
Simply put, Time Magazine held their annual online poll to determine their Man of the Year. Wrestling
fans turned out in droves to vote Mick Foley as their Man of the Year. At one point, Foley dominated
the voting controlling over 50% of the total votes. In a despicable act, TIME.com eliminated Mick
Foley from the voting, so they could 'give' the award to Bill Clinton and Ken Starr. WWF.com made good
by awarding Mick with their official Man of the Year award. Congrats Mick!
Will he ever win a singles World Title?
It finally happened! On the 1/4/99 edition of Monday Night RAW, Mick Foley realized his lifelong dream
of finally becoming a World Champion... Hard work paid off for Mr. Foley. Congratulations, you deserve it!
Afterwards, Mick Foley won the WWF Title two more times.
Whats this I hear about an autobiography?
Mick has finally released his acclaimed auto-biography. At over 500 pages long, it is one of the most insightful
and terrific books I have ever read. He is now a NY Times #1 Bestseller, and has finally reached mainstream acceptance.
In addition, there are talks of even making a movie based on the book.
Buy the book here!
Whats this "Amnesia angle" I keep hearing about?
First off, this was probably the worst angle in WCW history (#1 being that Shockmaster crap)
In 1993, Cactus Jack wrestled WCW World champion Vader on an episode of WCW Saturday Night.
Vader powerbombed him on concrete and won the match. Cactus Jack was not heard from for weeks.
(It was merely an angle to give Mick Foley some time off with his wife, his son, and his newborn baby
girl, Noel Foley). But as part of the storyline, WCW began doing vignettes with camera crews "finding"
Cactus Jack in Cleveland hanging out with homeless people. Oh, and he wasn't playing himself; instead, he
was playing a former sea captain. They even "flew" his "wife" and son to "Cleveland" to talk some sense
into him. Ironically enough, they had a dumpy looking actress play his wife, instead of Colette. Eventually
Cactus returned to WCW to feud with Vader and other wrestlers managed by Harley Race. Cactus Jack defeated
Yoshi Kwan at Fall Brawl to win his bag back, there was something in there, which I can't recall. Cactus Jack
lost the feud at Haloween Havoc, when he lost the Texas Death Match to Big Van Vader
Epstein, you're a total asshole. Why isn't Cactus Jack's IWA King of Death theme on this page?
You know what? Kiss my ass. Yeah, thats right you jerk. Anyways, for those of you who aren't
rude, click the below link. For his other IWA matches, Mick used Megadeath's Symphony of Destruction
Cactus Jack's IWA Theme
Has he wrestled anywhere else?
You're kidding, right? Cactus Jack has wrestled all over the world. He's wrestled in the WWF, WCW, ECW, IWA, FMW,
NWC, Steel City, SMW, USWA, NWA, Ozark, CWA, UWF, and TONS more. He's been everywhere and done everything.
He had an incredible indy feud with the late, great "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert.
Why did he leave WCW?
WCW had just signed Hulk Hogan to a long term contract. Ted Turner wanted to make WCW more family orientated
by banning blade jobs and various hardcore behavior. Cactus Jack, after winning the WCW tag title with Kevin
Sullivan, seemed unhappy with his character and WCW's direction. Cactus Jack was very underpaid, despite wrestling
in many WCW main events. Also, Ric Flair's booking style didn't have any long-term plans for Cactus. As part of an
agreement between WCW & ECW, Cactus Jack wrestled Sabu at Hostile City Showdown '94 and lost. Afterwards, he spat on the
WCW tag belt and threw it down. Eventually, Cactus Jack and WCW parted ways; but not after Cactus lost a "loser-leaves-town"
match against Kevin Sullivan. Cactus Jack returned to ECW full time and won the tag belts with Mikey Whipwreck
in a couple of weeks. Its funny, because Cactus Jack praised WCW during his heel turn (in a mocking way) by
wearing T-Shirts that said: "Forgive me Uncle Eric!" & "Dungeon of Doom!" Mick Foley goes into detail about this in his book
Whats the "I'm Hardcore" I keep hearing about?
Its prolly the best interview ever in wrestling. Cactus Jack breaks kayfabe and talks about
how he wants Tommy Dreamer to stop being hardcore. He then starts going nuts and talks about
how great his life is, because he's hardcore. This explanation does the interview NO JUSTICE.
Download a .wav of it right here ===> I'm Hardcore!
What does "Cane Dewey" mean?
This was a sign held by one of the ECW fans during the Cactus Jack/Terry Funk match at Hostile
City Showdown ’95. It became the basis of the entire "I’m Hardcore" angle. The Sandman is an
ECW wrestler known for attacking other wrestlers with his Singapore Cane. So, the sign was
basically encouraging the assault of Mick Foley’s then 4 year-old son. Cactus used it his reasoning
for turning on the ECW fans.
Why did Cactus Jack wear a "WW F'N F" T-Shirt?
ECW sells an "EC F'N W" T-Shirt. Cactus Jack signed with the WWF in late-1995 and decided to make
the WWF seem more hardcore, in a mocking sort of way. His answer was to wear a "WW F'N F" T-Shirt
and talk about wrestling Mabel and the Smoking Gunns. He even screamed for Vince McMahon's help
during a bout with Shane Douglas
This was what he based his heel turn on Mikey Whipwreck. He claimed that Mikey left Doritos
around Cactus Jack; and he developed an eating disorder as a result of the the Doritos
"haunting him, and calling him, until he couldn't resist anymore." Too funny for words.
What was his last ECW Match?
His last ECW match was at Big Ass Extreme Bash against Mikey Whipwreck. He debuted the
Mandible Claw in the match, and eventually pinned him after a piledriver. Afterwards,
the ECW fans gave him a standing ovation. Cactus Jack, Stevie Richards, and the Blue
Meanie danced and hugged while "New York, New York" blared throughout the Arena.
Cactus Jack got his wish, and strutted out of the ECW Arena
Why did it take so long for Cactus Jack to appear in the WWF?
Vince McMahon didn't think that Cactus Jack would be a successful gimmick in the WWF, so he brainstormed and
came up with a new gimmick for Mick Foley..... Mason the Mutilator. After much discussion, they finally
agreed upon the name Mankind (would have a double meaning). The WWF gave Mick a series of "Up Close"
interview segments with Jim Ross, in which Mick discussed his career as Cactus Jack and his dreams of
being Dude Love. Before the 9/22/97 MSG RAW show in which Dude Love was supposed to face HHH; the WWF bookers
thought that Mick should use the Cactus Jack gimmick in order to give the fans a surprise. Cactus Jack
got a tremendous ovation in the Garden. Afterwards, he reverted back to the Mankind/Dude Love gimmicks.
Why dis Cactus Jack appear off-and-on in the WWF?
The WWF and Mick Foley want the Cactus Jack persona to be regarded as special. The persona is used as his last resort
to end a feud (against HHH and the New Age Outlaws). They don't want to tarnish the image by jobbing Cactus Jack.
BTW, the name Cactus Jack was a tribute to his father; Mr. Jack Foley
Are Terry Funk and Mick Foley really friends?
Yes they are. They have worked with each other for many years now. They've had matches all over the globe, and
never disappoint the crowds. They have a great deal of trust for each other (thats why they perform
so many highspots in their matches).

When did he debut in the WWF?
Mankind debuted on 4/1/96 on the Monday Night RAW after Wrestlemania. He destroyed Bob Holly, and made him submit
via the Mandible Claw. Later on that night, Mankind visciously attacked the Undertaker. This led to a violent feud
lasted throughout 1996.
What was the Mankind gimmick intended to be?
Mankind was supposed to be a tortured soul. A child of extremem neglect. As the story went, he used to be a very well
mannered child who played the piano for his mother and her friends. Mankind felt he was being used by his 'perfect'
mother, so he smashed his fingers with a hammer (the mandible claw fingers). He then isolated himself, and hung
out with sewer rats... Good thing this angle didn't last too long.
What are these 'Up-Close' interviews I hear about?
In an attempt to give Mick Foley some mic time, the WWF decided to let Jim Ross interview him in some segments in which
WWF fans would understand his background as Cactus Jack, Dude Love, and his inner feelings. It was a great series of
interviews ending with Mankind giving Jim Ross the mandible claw. But yet, the fans started to cheer him in his match
against savio Vega to qualify for the King of the Ring tourney.
What the hell was the 'Pick Me Steve' angle?
After KotR '97, HBK had to vacate his half of the WWF tag titles. Steve Austin was left without a partner. Mankind wanted to
be Steve's partner and petitioned to be chosen. He wore placards that read 'Pick Me Steve' and an Austin 3:16 T-shirt. Austin
didn't want Mankind as his partner, so his 'stunned' him. Austin defended against Owen Hart/British Bulldog. Dude Love appeared
and wrestled as Steve's partner. They won the tag belts, and finally Steve accepted Mick Foley.
Why did Mankind agree to fall off & thru the Hell in the Cell?
Stop asking stupid questions. We all know Foley is nuts.
I keep hearing about his performance at the 1998 King of the Ring... Please explain!
Hey! No need to yell at me.... Mankind climbed to the roof of the Hell in the Cell and challenged the Undertaker to fight him atop
the cage. The Undertaker obliged and brawled with Mankind. At one point, the Undertaker threw Mankind off of the cage, landing on
top of the Spanish announcers table and destroying it in the process. It was a hellacious 16 foot fall. Foley was taken out on a
stretcher. Foley didn't want to go out like that, so he climbed back on top of the cage. The Undertaker chokeslammed him thru the
roof of the cage to the ring underneath. Foley eventually got back up (while the Undertaker chokeslammed Terry Funk), and brought
thumbtacks into the ring. Foley got chokeslammed on top of them, and the Undertaker finally tombstoned the poor SOB. This is a must
see performance containing my all time favorite bumps. In fact, download them right now!
Mankind flies off the cage! ******** Mankind goes thru the cage!
What injuries did he suffer at King of the Ring?
Here is the official report, courtesy of Bob Barnett...
The KOTR suicide show was all Mick Foley's idea. He had told people earlier in the day that he was going to do an insane bump
onto the infamous Spanish announcers table-but no one knew it would be from the top of the cage. His padding was to deflect the
tacks-it didn't cushion the bumps. Foley blacked out twice during the match-after each of the 2 big bumps. The bump through the
cage was unplanned. The cage was not supposed to break. It was his idea to keep going out there. He dislocated his jaw on the first
bump-and Francois (the trainer) put it back in place. He also broke several ribs. And these are just the known injuries before he was
X-rayed. Undertaker broke his ankle in 2 places.
In an act of pure lunacy, Foley returned to action only 2 days later at the RAW tapings.
Is the Hardcore Title a real title?
Yes and no. Vince designed the belt specifically for Foley, and it will be defended on RAWs and PPVs. All Hardcore Title
Matches are no DQ matches with falls that count anywhere.
Did Mankind say "I Quit" at the 1999 Royal Rumble?
Nope. What you heard was a recording of Foley saying "I Quit" during a promo he cut during Sunday Night Heat.
Once again, Foley gets screwed. Don't worry, he submitted to a Hercules torture rack back in 1986 on WWF TV.

Whats the origin of Dude Love?
As a teenager, Mick Foley was obsessed with wrestling. His friends and him pretended they wrestled in the WWF; and were all vying for
the WWF Championship. Mick played Dude Love. A hippie sort of character. Not exactly a heartthrob as many would lead you to believe.
It was a gimmick that Foley created.
Explain the Dude Love video!
As I said before, Foley and his friends recorded their matches onto a video. Dude Love was the real star, tho. Dude Love did many high risk
manuevers. One being, diving off his friend's 2 story house onto a bed of mattresses. The imapct was so great that Dude Love actually
shit his pants. Bet you didn't know that, eh? Well, its not true. Actually, after the dive, Big Dick Zuck "sodimized him"!! Anyways, the
video ended up in Dominic DeNucci's hands, and Foley was accepted to be trained by Dominic. There are two videos, The Loved One &
The Legend of Frank Foley. You can purchase the "Loved One" straight from Danny Zucker and Mick Foley (aka The Brothers Penis) right here:
The Loved One
When did Dude Love first appear in the WWF?
Dude Love first appeared in the WWF on 7/14/97's Monday Night RAW. Austin had no tag partner against Bulldog/Owen Hart.
Once Austin cleaned house, Dude Love appeared on the Titan-Tron declaring that he's there to save the day.
Dude Love got the pin on the British Bulldog and Austin & Love were tag champs.
