If there is just one superstar in wrestling known for giving pints of blood, gallons of sweat, and vials of tears to the industry (literally), most fans will mention Mick Foley.
Over the course of his storied career, the man behind the personas of Mankind, Dude Love, and the infamous Cactus Jack suffered numerous injuries. These “badges of hardcore honor” includes more than six concussions, a broken jaw, a broken cheekbone, a broken nose, a separated shoulder, second-degree burns, a broken wrist, broken ribs, lost teeth, a bruised kidney, a torn ACL, and an almost-infinite number of barbed wire and thumbtack punctures. That, my friends, is a lot of blood, sweat, and tears for any industry.
These days, Mick Foley is taking it easy as he coasts along on the memories of his hardcore legend days along and enjoys even more success with his many best-selling wrestling memoirs, novels (I personally love Tietam Brown) and radio shows.
However, some wrestling fans may be out-of-the-loop when it comes to Foley’s latest adventure: comedy. That’s right! Mrs. Foley’s baby boy is now a stand-up comic, and thanks to Youtube, many have experienced his wrestling-influenced punch lines and jokes.
Yet, the funniest thing Mick Foley ever said was actually on Twitter! What is it you ask? Well… read the tweet below!

You see what Mick Foley wrote and can you believe it? It isn’t the part about #CrazyChristmas, even though fans know how much Foley loves Christmas. The part that requires attention is his daughter, Noelle Foley, being on sale! Wait a minute?! Mrs. Foley’s baby boy’s baby daughter… is ON SALE!? That can’t be right… but… that’s what it says!
After the sales pitch, Foley’s twitter feed exploded with snarky snapbacks, hilarity, and fans asking how to bid! Unfortunately for all single bachelors who have a pretty penny to burn, that part was simply a typo. Yes, it is true that something of Noelle Foley’s is on sale, but it is her brand new t-shirt sold at Top Rope Tuesday. Noelle Foley herself verified the details with advertising on her Twitter and other social media outlets. Apparently income from sales will go to attending WWE Summerslam 2014.
And if you still think it isn’t about the t-shirt, Mick Foley made sure to post another tweet to clarify the situation.

Mick Foley’s word crimes may have only boosted his comedic prowess. Taking into account how popular Foley is outside of the WWE, this is probably the perfect time for the dying company to ride along his coattails. First, they need to lift their ban on mentioning his name on WWE programming, which sadly they probably will not. Foley’s scathing words about the WWE Royal Rumble 2014 was enough to pass such a tyrannical order, even though many WWE fans agree with Foley in the first place.
In conclusion, Mick Foley (unintentionally) putting his daughter up for sale will forever go down in wrestling (and comedic) social media history. It is a solitary moment in time when millions and millions of fans thought they had a chance with a hardcore legend’s daughter… if they had enough paper bills with historic American portraits to back it up.
