Britt Baker has an eye for marketing, and she knows how to get her image out there. Wanted posters have historically worked to get someone’s face into the public, and now it seems that she has Mick Foley’s blessing to borrow his idea.

Mick Foley’s Cactus Jack character rocked a Wanted t-shirt with his face on it. This became an iconic symbol in pro wrestling that stood the test of time.

During a recent episode of Foley Is Pod, Mick Foley gave his blessing to Britt Baker, just in case she wants to use that shirt. After all, she could always make it pop with Pittsburgh Steelers colors.

“I even gave (Baker), I said, you know, Britt, you ought to see if they could do a…,’ somebody was wearing a Cactus Jack ‘Wanted’ shirt, I said those are Pittsburgh Steeler colors.


“I said, ‘You ought to see if they could modify that and make it a shirt for you.’ She goes, ‘Would you mind?’ I said, ‘No, I’ve been making money off that and been happy to see people wearing it for literally 28 years now.’

“So when The Briscoes had their ‘wanted’ shirt, that’s cool by me, I’m doing fine. I’d much rather The Briscoes have their own ‘wanted’ shirt than to have a bootleg ‘wanted’ shirt out there.

“But I see it as a tribute, I see it as a good thing. Nobody copies or borrows from something that’s not good. So I’m all for Doctor Baker rocking a Cactus-esque t-shirt. Make it happen, TK. You know you can make it happen.”

We’ll have to see if Britt Baker drops a Wanted t-shirt any time soon. Odds are she would sell a lot of those shirts, especially in Pittsburgh.

What’s your take on Mick Foley giving Britt Baker permission to borrow his merchandise idea? Do you think she would sell a ton of Wanted t-shirts? Sound off in the comments!
