First HoFer revealed for 2013

NY Post wrote:Mick Foley will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this April, The Post has learned.

According to sources, Foley, a three-time WWE Champion, will be honored at the company’s annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony which is held the night before Wrestlemania.

This year’s ceremony will be held at Madison Square Garden on Saturday April 6 with Wrestlemania 29 taking place at MetLife Stadium the following evening.

The Long Island resident debuted in 1986 and while not having the typical wrestler physique that other superstars of his era had, was a crowd favorite. Foley often switched between his three wrestling personas, Cactus Jack, Dude Love and Mankind during his career and is most famous for his no-holds-barred mentality in and out of the ring.

Some of his most memorable moments came during the WWE’s “Attitude Era” where he won the WWE Championship three times, the Hardcore Championship once and the Tag Team title eight times. Foley’s partnership with The Rock produced three of those tag team titles and the duo became a hit among fans by creating the “Rock and Sock Connection.”

Foley’s most memorable moment came at the King of the Ring in 1998 when he wrestled The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match. During the bout Foley was tossed from the top of the cage and crashed through the Spanish announce table in one of the most-jarring moments of any match. Foley has admitted that he was knocked unconscious during the match where he was also chokeslammed through the cage.

Foley lost the match but it is regarded as one of his best and was named the Match of the Year for 1998 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated.

Who do you think will induct the Micker? I've heard everyone from Terry Funk (my choice), The Rock, JR, Undertaker, Vince and even his Mom.
