Today’s Question: Going back to a question last month on this very blog about the greatest promo you’ve ever seen, in the career of Mick Foley (as Cactus Jack, Dude Love, Mankind, or Mick Foley), I’m curious: What one promo/interview in the career of Mick Foley stands out as his best?
Yesterday’s Question: Besides Hulk Hogan, who’s heel turn surprised you the most?
I’m calling this a digest version, because work stuff, and a last-minute doctor’s visit has me swamped for time, so I couldn’t go through everyone’s responses and comment specifically. However, I would have to say this was tough to choose just one….The Horsemen alone, for example, could put together a greatest hits (Dusty, Ole, Luger, Sting – numerous times, Kevin Greene – all memorable). Barry Windham and Shawn Michaels also had awesome turns. I also liked Austin Idol’s 1987 Memphis turn against Jerry Lawler, and the Road Warriors turn on Sting, but as far as the most surprising, along with possibly the best executed, there is only one choice. The Holy grail of all Heel Turns – The 4 Horsemen dump Sting, 1990.
What takes the cake for me is how Ole Anderson very calmly in a “You know, at any time, we can stomp you in the ground” tone of voice, very calmly tells Sting…….”You’re not a Horseman anymore….Its…..OVER.” (The look on Sting’s face: Classic).
See you next time with a new topic, and hopefully a full rant
