Mick Foley reveals his favourite ‘Three Faces of Foley’ character

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and icon of pro wrestling Mick Foley recently revealed which of his Three Faces of Foley gimmicks was his absolute favourite.

Appearing on the Excuse Me: The Vickie Guerrero Show podcast, Foley would reveal if he preferred Mankind, Cactus Jack or Dude Love.

‘I love being Cactus. At the time I was doing it, I enjoyed being Dude Love for two months during the ’˜Summer of Love’ [in 1997]” Foley began.

“But when November rolled around and I was still dancing in the ring, I was like, ’˜Oh. This character has run its course’. But I love being Dude Love on Cameo videos. It’s the hokiest. Dude has reinvented himself as a lounge singer” Foley revealed.

“So, I do birthday songs. (Foley sings badly) So I love doing it. But if I had to pick one I would pick Mankind. Latter-day Mankind. And the reason is ’“ I didn’t realize it at the time but that latter-day Mankind character was really connecting with people who didn’t feel like they fit in” Foley added.

“So it was kind of a sense of ’“ a source of ’“ we’re supposed to take people’s minds off their problems and entertain. But it took me years to find out that people were connecting and felt a kinship with this guy who didn’t quite fit in but found a way to become a big deal anyway” Foley concluded.
