TMZ: Mick Foley — Surrendering MR. SOCKO … For Charity
May 4, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
The man who once donned the mask of Mankind — wrestling legend Mick Foley — is now auctioning off one of the most ICONIC pieces of pro wrestling history … MR. SOCKO … and he’s doing it all for charity.
You might recognize it — it’s the same Mr. Socko Mankind infamously used to ensnare The Rock back in 1998 … securing his first WWF championship title. Yes, it was WWF back then.
And that’s just the beginning — Mick’s also selling off his original Mankind sleeveless shirt, the elastic wristband he used to execute THE MANDIBLE CLAW … and the bloody rags he wore when he faced Ric Flair last year … possibly Mick’s last match ever.
The auction’s going live today … and it’s all to benefit Mick’s charity — the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.
We’re told Mick has already raised $100,000 for the cause — but wants to keep going … and pull in as much money as possible. Check out RAINN’s website for updates.
