Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

Lent Day 19 Mick Foley

My introduction to Mick Foley was in Barry Blaustein's documentary "Beyond the Mat."
Also known as "Cactus Jack" and "Mankind," Foley was a man who could take a LOT of punishment. He took a fall and the match ended when Foley became unconscious. In front of his wife and kids, Foley was repeated knocked upside the head with a chair. As The Rock continued his brutal act, Foley's son watched his father bleed.

Foley writes about these experiences in, "Foley is Good," his second book. While wrestling is still a part of his life's calling, Foley semiretired when he saw how this beating traumatized his family.
