WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is as versatile of a superstar to come through the wrestling/sports entertainment industry that we’ve ever seen.

To preview his appearance at Side Splitters in Knoxville this Sunday, revisit his career and talk about his projects outside of wrestling, I had a chance to talk to Mick Foley on the radio show I host, the News Sentinel Sports Page here on The Sports Animal.

Knoxville News Sentinel sports writer Evan Woodbery and I interviewed Mick for just over 18 minutes.

Besides a legendary career in the ring, Foley has accomplished so much more.

He’s a multi-time best selling author. His extensive forms of writing include: an autobiography, fiction, graphic novel, children’s books, a documentary and now comic books.
