This past weekend I had the opportunity to sit down and watch the brand new WWE DVD Release, For All Mankind: Life & Career of Mick Foley. This DVD Release is an entire career retrospective of Mick Foley’s career which includes his time in World Championship Wrestling, Extreme Championship Wrestling, Japan and of course World Wrestling Entertainment. Throughout the DVD you get to hear from Mick Foley himself as he recounts some of the biggest moments in his entire career, along with hearing from the likes of Terry Funk, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Paul Heyman, John Cena, William Regal, a very surprising Shane Douglas, friends of Mick Foley and others, as they recount these moments as well, along with sharing their stories and memories of those moments.
Throughout the DVD you learned a variety of different things about Mick Foley, which includes growing up you hear stories about how he would eat worms, walk around with a half shaved bearded and even he walked around for a couple of weeks dressed as the Homecoming Queen, yes I said Homecoming Queen and you even see pictures of this in the DVD and its really scary to see Mick Foley dressed up in a dress. One of the cool things in the DVD was you were able to see footage you have never seen before, like promos from a very young Mick Foley as Dude Love, which goes beyond the one promo that has been replayed many times on WWE TV, they showed actual promos never before seen, which I thought were really cool. As you even found out that Dude Love created his own drink called the “Love Potion”.
Other things in the DVD include them showing slow motion video of Mick Foley’s ear flying off in Japan, which I dont think they have ever shown before, which is really interesting to see and you hear both Vader and Mick Foley recount the happenings of the night. What you also get to hear is thoughts from both Mick Foley & Terry Funk as the take you through the infamous Hell in a Cell Match and its really intriguing to hear from Terry Funk and what he thought of the whole thing, along with other superstars just to see how nuts Mick Foley truly is.
You also get to hear in the DVD about what were Mick Foley’s plans on retiring each time, his comebacks in to Wrestling, which include coming back as Commissioner, the Wrestlemania 16 Main Event, his feud with Randy Orton and Edge and what the plans were for his debut in WWE in 1996.
For any Mick Foley fan, this is a DVD you must get, as you get a two plus hour Documentary along with I believe over Six Hours of Extras, which makes it even more worth it. Go out and get yourself a copy of the new WWE DVD Release For All Mankind: Life & Career of Mick Foley, it will be well worth the watch.
