Many gimmicks in pro wrestling will forever be associated with a certain wrestler. Mick Foley introduced his Mr. Socko character, a literal sock puppet, while he was trying to cheer up Vince McMahon. That puppet became a breakthrough character for WWE and now Mr. Socko is All Eite.

Click here for our complete coverage of AEW Saturday Night Dynamite from this week.

During this weeks’ episode of AEW Saturday Night Dynamite, Evil Uno pulled out a sock and used it just like Mr. Socko on Matt Jackson. The oldest Young Buck sold that move just like he was getting an authentic mandible claw from Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy himself.

This was a big moment that popped the Miami crowd in a huge way. The Superkliq still beat the Dark Order, but this was certainly a fun nod to a pro wrestling legend that caught a lot of attention. As of this writing, Mick Foley has not commented on this spot.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
