Mick Foley has long been said to have heat with The Undertaker. The two WWE Hall of Famers have reportedly been at odds over the last few years, especially after The Deadman omitted long-time rival and co-worker Mick Foley in his Hall of Fame speech.
Both men had some of their most legendary moments against each other. As Mankind, Mick Foley was thrown from the top of the Hell in a Cell during their match at King of the Ring 1998, almost killing him after some mistakes caused him to fall through the roof of the cell.
Foley survived the injuries and went on to wrestle for many more years, becoming WWE Champion as well as having a Hall of Fame career, as well as competing in TNA in his later years. However, after The Undertaker avoided thanking Mick Foley at his Hall of Fame speech in 2022, fans have speculated that their is heat between The Undertaker and Mick Foley.
However, In a lengthy Facebook post, Mick Foley set the record straight. He was videoed sitting next to The Undertaker at Ric Flair’s last match (not the one in TNA, the one where he was 73 years old and nearly died) and the pair were shown talking, laughing and celebrating the Nature Boy’s career together.
In the Facebook post, Mick Foley said about The Undertaker
“My son Hugh went along for a boy’s night out with Dad — and what an amazing night we had!” Foley said. “Not only did I get to put my daughter’s boyfriend, Frank the Clown, in his place, but we took in some great matches, I saw some old friends, and was part of the joyous atmosphere backstage – the likes of which I have seldom seen.”
“I did not even know that The Undertaker was coming until about 20 minutes before he arrived. It certainly was good to sit with and reminisce with someone I had so much shared history with. And no, there is no heat whatsoever between me and The Undertaker.”
“Great matches come and go. On the occasions I had to headline PPV shows, you walk through the curtain after the match, and the crew is breaking down the arena, and there’s only a handful of your colleagues who haven’t hit the road.”
“WrestleMania would be the major exception to that rule. But last night, there was this amazing sense of history and joy backstage. I am so glad I had a chance to be part of a great night of wrestling history.
“In not so good news, my Twitter account has been hacked. Someone is trying to extort me for money, and until further notice, or you see a video of me saying otherwise, please don’t fall for any scams this person is trying to perpetrate.”
Mick Foley confirmed that there was “no heat whatsoever” between himself and The Undertaker, squashing any discussion of the pair falling out. He is fine with his omission in the Deadman’s Hall of Fame speech and understands the nature of the business.
