Wrestling with Passion: An Interview with Mick Foley

Mick Foley

You may not be familiar with the name Mick Foley. But maybe you should be.

Foley is perhaps best known as one of the superstars who launched World Wrestling Entertainment into its most recent surge in popularity. Among fans, his marquee matches are considered among the most exciting in the history of the business, due to his incredible toughness in the ring.

But Foley has found significant success outside the ring, as well. He's a New York Times #1 Bestselling memoirist and author of children's books, a philanthropist, and an actor.
