WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is considered a legend in the pro wrestling business. Mick Foley worked in other companies and competed against several top stars in the industry. His Mr. Socko gimmick was one of the best gimmicks during the Attitude Era and now he has disclosed who came up with the idea.

Throughout his legendary career, Mick Foley has been responsible for creating numerous iconic moments in WWE history. This includes his performance at the Hell In A Cell match, where he took a major bump that permanently damaged him. He was also part of numerous other dangerous moments in the company.

While speaking on his Foley is Pod podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed who came up with the Mr. Socko idea. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t him but Al Snow who thought of Mr. Socko.

Al [Snow] said, ‘How about a sock puppet?’” Foley recounted before noting that Snow told him, “‘People hate sock puppets.’”


It was just that horrible ventriloquist act,” Foley said. “If I’d been an actual ventriloquist, it wouldn’t have worked!”

Mick Foley was also accused of concealing the pain from his injuries for years. Regardless, Mick Foley will forever be loved for all the sacrifices he has made for the business and that is unlikely to ever change.
