A Night of Comedy with Mick Foley in Erie

Posted: Updated:

In the world of wrestling, he's the 'Hardcore Legend.' 

In the literary world, he's a two time New York Times best-selling author.

And now, he's a comedian.

That man, is three time World Wrestling Entertainment champion Mick Foley. 

On Thursday night, Foley shared his stand-up routine with a sold-out crowd at JR's Last Laugh.

"I tell wrestling stories for wrestling fans, that non-fans happen to enjoy." said Foley.

During the act, Foley touched on a number of topics...from Santa Claus, to his famous 'Hell in the Cell' match in Pittsburgh against the Undertaker back in 1998, in which he was thrown 16 feet from a steel cage onto a table.

A match, that Sean Peebles of Erie was at.

"He's known for a lot of crazy things prior to that," said Peebles.  "But that one solidified his legacy for sure."

Foley also reflected on his travels through Erie.

"I learned in February of 1987 not to travel I-90 during a snow squall," said Foley.  "I spent Super Bowel Sunday of 1987 in right around the Erie area."

As for a future in wrestling...

"I can't," said Foley.  "Turns out, some of the things I did that make for amusing anecdotes were not good for me.  So Apparently, if you drop elbows from an elevated platform for 15 years, the concrete eventually wins that war.  So there will be no more matches for me."

But Foley plans to continue to entertain his fans for years to come.
