Now, there are a million reasons to love Mick Foley that have nothing to do with the simple pleasures of watching him wrestle, or take an impossible fall, or choke a grown man with a gym sock. In a business that still uses homosexuals for punch lines and lesbians as cheap titillation, Foley spoke out against bullying gay kids. He took his entire advance for his last memoir, Countdown to Lockdown: A Hardcore Journal, and donated it to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network where he also works as an online volunteer. Its co-founder, Tori Amos, wrote songs that inspired him about women's struggles.
Still, no one talks about Mick Foley anymore without mentioning his 1998 Hell in a Cell match against the Undertaker, though that's properly how it should be and we may as well talk about it now.
