On Wednesday, Mick Foley started a Twitter poll asking fans who they think should induct the soon-to-be Hall of Famer.
The tweet stated:
Who would YOU like to see induct me into the @wwe HOF? I'll list my findings later today RIGHT HERE on Twitter!— Mick Foley (@realMickFoley) January 16, 2013
Some obvious choices were The Undertaker, Rock, Jim Ross, and Edge. However, even with those powerful names as options, none of them had enough stroke to get the nod from Foley's faithful. Instead, fans decided to go old school and pick a man who has a storied history and played a big part in The Hardcore Legend's career.
So, without further ado, I will step aside and let Foley's tweet do the talking:
In a landslide, Terry Funk seems to be the #1 choice for my @wweHOF induction. Other favorites wereUndertaker, TheRock, Edge & Al Snow.— Mick Foley (@realMickFoley) January 16, 2013
I, personally, am shocked that so many fans remembered Funk. Don't get me wrong. Funk is a legend in the business and has had some amazing feuds with some of the biggest names in wrestling history. Not to mention, he is also credited for building the careers of several stars from the now defunct ECW.
Fortunately, Foley happens to be one of them.
Overall, many wrestling fans on Twitter tend to skew toward WWE's younger demographic. So, seeing this many of Foley's followers wanting Funk is a testament to the Hall of Famer's career.
As of this article, there is no "official" word as to who will be inducting Foley. Ultimately, Funk does seem to be the most logical fit for this event. So, hopefully, Foley will listen to the fans and reunite with Funk for this special night.
In the end, it could take several weeks for the WWE to make the official announcement. So we probably won't find out for some time if the fans' choice is indeed Foley's choice.
