WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley will be returning to Poughkeepsie to celebrate a big anniversary.

I remember first becoming a fan of Mick Foley when he went under the name Cactus Jack back in the 1980s in WCCW (World Class Championship Wrestling). In fact, Cactus Jack was my favorite character that he had out of all of them, which included Mankind and Dude Love. In addition to WCCW, Foley wrestled for many wrestling organizations throughout his career including WWE, WCW, ECW, and TNA, along with many promotions in Japan. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers in WWE history and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. One of the most talked-about matches of all time was when Mankind fought the Undertaker at King of the Ring in 1998 in a Hell in a Cell Match, which featured Mankind (Foley) getting tossed off the top of the cage and onto the floor.

I remember meeting Mick Foley on a book tour 20 years ago at the now-defunct Media Play in South Hills Mall.
