WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley is considered a legend in the pro wrestling industry. Mick Foley worked in other companies and also worked with numerous top stars in the industry. He also wore shoe lifts to look more menacing against The Undertaker.
Foley signed with WWE back in 1996 and he had to work harder than anyone else. He had to do so in order to convince Vince McMahon that he was a main event level star. Matches against the likes of Undertaker certainly helped.
Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy feuded with top stars such as Triple H and The Undertaker as well. While speaking on the inaugural episode of Foley is Pod, the Hall of Famer revealed that he wore shoe lifts to look more menacing against The Undertaker.
“I was wearing the boots. I wanted to get used to the boots because the idea at that time was I was going to wrestle with lifts on, so that I could be taller and look more menacing for The Undertaker. I was a legit 6’4” when I worked, but I hunched over. I was gnarled over, and I think when I came into the picture in WWE, I was immediately with The Undertaker.”
Mick Foley also had shockingly low payment in his first WWE contract. Mick Foley will forever be grateful to The Undertaker for all the ways he helped his career and that’s what matters.
