Mick Foley goes almost an hour with Hall of Fame speech


The Hall of Fame ceremony kicked off with the induction of the hardcore legend himself, Mick Foley. After the fantastic tribute video, Terry Funk came out for the speech which ended with him pulling out an envelope for the “nominees” – all four of them – which were Dude Love, Mankind, Cactus Jack, and Mick Foley.

Foley came out to a loud ovation and did a few comedy spots. He thanked several people including Jimmy Snuka, Jim Ross, Randy Orton, The Rock, and The Undertaker. Foley talked a bit about that Hell In A Cell match against the Undertaker and put over Ross for his contribution to that match.

The highlight of Foley’s speech came when he said that he never managed to beat Chris Jericho and expressed his wish to at least drop an elbow on him. Jericho rushed to the stage and laid down on the floor as Foley prepared to drop an elbow. CM Punk then joined in on the fun and acted as the referee as Foley hit the elbow, followed by a three count by CM Punk.

During his speech he mentioned he wished Santa Claus was there and after he wrapped up, Santa Claus came out and gave Foley a jacket as Christmas music was played in the background.

Foley’s speech went almost an hour and was the person who spoke the longest.
