Few people can get away with wearing sweatpants in public and Mick Foley is one of them. Taking professional wrestling by storm with a variety of characters, the toothless Foley even managed to make a celebrity out of a sock puppet. This year the Hardcore Champion will add WWE Hall of Fame Inductee to his already impressive resume. We can only hope Mr. Socko will be at the ceremony.
