Travis Meets A Wrestling Legend In Santa Claus, IN
Mick Foley is a WWE Hall of Famer and one of my favorite wrestlers of all time. It turns out, he loves the Tri-State too! Foley was at the American Legion in Santa Claus last night for a stand up comedy show and I was lucky enough to be in attendance.
The show was awesome...especially if you're a wrestling fan. Foley gave some insight on his career and shared some funny stories about life as a wrestler. He even talked about his most famous match where he was thrown 20 feet off of a cell.
This man has seen it all, which is why he is a Hall Of Famer. I was in New York City for his Hall Of Fame induction, which was something else he talked about at the show. Naturally, I wore my Foley Hall Of Fame shirt.
After the show, I was fortunate enough to get to talk to the man himself. He noticed my shirt and talked about both of us being at Madison Square Garden for the Hall Of Fame, which was awesome! We talked about my favorite match of all time where he fought The Rock, and he even made me my very own Mr. Socko!
Foley is no stranger to the Tri-State, as he has wrestled in Evansville many of times, and he is a frequent visitor of Santa Claus. In case you didn't know, Mick has a slight obsession with Santa Claus himself. Earlier in the day, Holiday World shared this video of Mick Foley trying out the Thunderbird.
Overall, last night was something that I will never forget, and I look forward to seeing Mrs. Foley's Baby Boy again in the future.
