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. He is also known to pop in other promotions from time to time and now it appears Foley made a shocking appearance during a recent GCW event.

Embracing the festive season, the Hardcore Legend recently donned the iconic red suit of Santa Claus. This merry transformation was not just for spreading holiday cheer, as Foley made a surprise appearance at the ICW No Holds Barred event on December 16.

Dressed as the jolly old man from the North Pole, Foley worked his magic as executed a double-arm DDT on John Wayne Murdoch, leaving him laid out in the ring. Foley then followed it up by introducing a barbed wire bat into the mix.

He hit Murdoch right on the head with the bat, which helped Tara Zep pick up the win. This marked Foley’s first appearance outside WWE in a while. It is to be noted he has not wrestled since the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble.


Mick Foley also recently expressed his willingness to assist Shawn Michaels in running NXT. It remains to be seen what’s next in store for Mick Foley, but fans definitely enjoyed his unexpected appearance at the GCW event.
