Mick Foley will be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6th. A little over a week later, WWE will release a three disc DVD on his career.
As with other recent WWE DVD's, the first disc of For All Mankind: The Life and Career of Mick Foley will contain a feature-length documentary.
WWEDVDNews.com has revealed the names interviewed for that documentary, and it includes some of the biggest names in the history of the business, including The Rock, Triple H and CM Punk.
The full list is as follows:
• Mick Foley
• Jim Gray (Mick’s childhood friend)
• John Imbriani (Mick’s friend)
• Dominic Denucci (WWF wrestler in the 70s and Mick’s wrestling trainer)
• Shane Douglas
• Michael Hayes
• CM Punk
• Paul Heyman
• Terry Funk
• Joey Styles
• Jim Ross
• Triple H
• Shawn Michaels
• Mick’s daughter
• William Regal
• Big Show
• Judith Regan (Founder of ReganBooks, which published Foley’s book)
• The Miz
• The Rock
Superstars like The Rock, Triple H and, of course, Terry Funk all had a huge impact on Mick's career, and it will be great to see them regale fans with their respective Foley stories.
Fans can also likely look forward to Michael Hayes, Jim Ross and Paul Heyman discussing Foley's career progression from a backstage point of view.
When it comes to the man himself, according to the report:
"Mick goes on record of saying he didn’t like his WrestleMania 20 match, that coming back in 2000 to wrestle was one of the worst decisions he ever made, and how after the infamous Hell in a Cell bumps Vince McMahon came up to him and said he doesn’t want to see anything like that ever again. Foley considers the time period of his role as WWF Commissioner the best of his career."
The report states that there is, "Plenty of WCW, NWA, ECW and other organisation footage within," roughly 15 minutes dedicated to Hell in a Cell at King of the Ring 1998 and his run as Commissioner Foley.
As you'd expect, no reference of his time in TNA is made, as it's said that "they basically stop talking about [his wrestling career] after his match with Edge at WM22."
