I wonder if WWE legend Mick Foley, AKA the man behind Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack, woke up yesterday morning, checked his TimeHop app, and thought “Holy hell, I almost died seventeen years ago.” That is what a lot of people thought when they watched him, portraying his Mankind character, get thrown off of a cage TWICE.
Yesterday was the seventeen-year anniversary of the Hell in a Cell match between Mankind and The Undertaker. Every fan who is old enough to remember that match remembers how Foley was able to get up, after being thrown off the top of the cell through a table only to be thrown off the cell again, this time into and THROUGH the canvas of the ring.
In honor of the anniversary, Mick Foley Facebook post of an incredible picture captured at the right moment.
I can hear Jim Ross now. “Good God almighty! Good God almighty! That killed him! As God as my witness, he is broken in half!”
Lucky for us fans, Foley did not die and he was able to walk again after the match. But could imagine being able to get up after this?
