Mick Foley has always been regarded as one of the most personable Superstars the WWE Universe has ever seen, mixing comedic brilliance with his hardcore wrestling style like no other.
How else would you explain the WWE Hall of Famer being able to pull off three different personas via Mankind, Cactus Jack and Dude Love?
On Thursday, the company announced that fans of Mrs. Foley’s baby boy will be able to watch him on his own show, Holy Foley, which is slated to premiere on the WWE Network this August. Bang! Bang! The 10-episode, 30 minute family reality series will give viewers a closer look at Foley, the wrestling legend, husband and father, while highlighting his relationship with his daughter Noelle.
“I am excited to give fans a behind-the-scenes look into the Foley family life,” Foley himself said in a company press release statement. “Holy Foley will be filled with surprises, lots of drama and moments that will make you laugh out loud.”
Part of the show will have Noelle breaking it to her dad that she wants to follow in his footsteps by being a WWE wrestler, even revealing that she has been secretly training to join the company. Just as interesting is the fact that Foley’s oldest son, Dewey, recently landed a job as a writer’s assistant on the WWE creative team.
There’s no doubt that Foley’s show should deliver plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. After all, this is the same guy who threw an unforgettable “Rock, This is Your Life” celebration on Monday Night Raw.
Speaking about Raw, Foley made a cameo on the show earlier this month, giving Dean Ambrose his barbed-wire bat to use in his no holds barred street fight against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32 this Sunday night.
The Hardcore Legend also recently relived his favorite WrestleMania moments as a guest on ESPN’s Off The Top Rope segment with Jonathan Coachman.
During the appearance last week, Foley called the iconic “Macho Man” Randy Savage-Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat match at WrestleMania III back in 1987 his all-time favorite match at “The Show of Shows.” We’ll see if “The Lunatic Fringe” can do anything to help rewrite that feeling … with the previous assist from Foley.
Mick will appear as a guest on the Stone Cold Podcast Live! tonight after SmackDown.
