MICK FOLEY
HARDCORE DIARIES

I still remember when Mick released his first autobiography all those years ago, now many moons later Mick returns to the form that started it all with his third [yes that is 3rd] autobiography. Originally this was to be a book chronicling Vince and Wrestlemania, but it turned into this. I honestly would rather have this book then that Wrestlemania one, at least for now.

The book starts off nice talking about how this book came about and about the excellent idea he had to make a hell turn. As you find out later that heel turn didn't happen exactly like he had planed. It turns out he was the mastermind behind him joining Vince's kissing club, of course different things happened and it all changed after a while. Like most people I bought this book to learn about all the little dirty secrets about Vince and the WWE, but I found myself being more interested in Mick's personal experiences in events not related to the WWE. Some of those include Mick's experiences with hurt soldiers, sure some of the trips were made with the WWE but others were not.

Other great reading experiences I had dealt with the charity stories Mick tells about in this book, the Batman & Robin story is a fav. It was these stories that made Mick seem more real to me, he wasn't just the guy on TV anymore that became a hardcore legend. Of course WWE related tales do arise with in these pages, his account of how Vince and the executives at the WWE changed his whole story line around was a very entertaining read. The ECW storyline ended up being one of the best in the book about his recent come back, you also find out that Terry Funk not showing up for Mick's award on RAW years ago is true, he no showed because he wasn't getting enough money to support his friend.

But other accounts in this book are great as well; his interaction with Candice Michelle is funny. And the time he took of writing his fiction books is covered in this as well; this is one of the better things about the book. This book is a worthy addition to his now classic trilogy.

It's great that Foley keeps releasing more autobiographies. There's always a ton of things to say about oneself! Thanks for sharing!
