Mick Foley’s name is legend in the sports-entertainment industry. In 1996, he finally made it. Mick Foley was now with World Wrestling Entertainment. His performances in various matches are remembered by all who saw them either live or on television. Who can forget the unbelievable sight of Foley being thrown off the top of a cell and crash through an announcing table in a Hell in the Cell Match at the 1998 King of the Ring pay-per-view event. Later on, he formed The Rock N Sock Connection, one of the most popular tag teams in WWE history with The Rock. They went on to win the World Tag Team Championship three times. Individually, he captured the WWE Championship three times, once in ’98, and twice in ’99. His stamina to perform day after day garnered the attention and loyalty of millions of fans worldwide. In addition, Foley has become a successful author. His 1999 autobiography, Have A Nice Day -written in longhand on 760 pages of notebook paper during a European tour - reached No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. In 2000 and 2001, Foley wrote two children’s holiday books, titled Christmas Chaos and Halloween Hijinx. Mick wrote a follow-up to Have a Nice Day, entitled Foley is Good. Later, Foley wrote the book called Tietam Brown, a coming of age-type story. Foley's newest offering is the children's book, "Tales from Wrescal Lane." His heart is just as big outside the ring, as Mick Foley has participated in numerous Make-A-Wish Foundation events as well as surprise visits to children under strict medical care in hospitals. Foley has also visited schools and libraries, talking to students about the necessity of education and the importance of reading in and out of the classroom. Foley has also traveled to various military bases and military hospitals to visit U.S. troops, boosting morale and get-well wishes to soldiers. Courtesy:
