Mick Foley drops an elbow on Jericho on stage at hall of fame ceremony

Apr 7, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

The Hall of Fame ceremony kicked off with the induction of the hardcore
legend himself, Mick Foley. After the fantastic tribute video, Terry Funk
came out for the speech which ended with him pulling out an envelope for
the “nominees” – all four of them – which were Dude Love, Mankind, Cactus
Jack, and Mick Foley. Foley came out to a loud ovation and did a few
comedy spots. He thanked several people including Jimmy Snuka, Jim Ross,
Randy Orton, The Rock, and The Undertaker. Foley talked a bit about that
Hell In A Cell match against the Undertaker and put over Ross for his
contribution to that match. The highlight of Foley’s speech came when he
said that he never managed to beat Chris Jericho and expressed his wish to
at least drop an elbow on him. Jericho rushed to the stage and laid down
on the floor as Foley prepared to drop an elbow. CM Punk then joined in on
the fun and acted as the referee as Foley hit the elbow, followed by a
three count by CM Punk. During his speech he mentioned he wished Santa
Claus was there and after he wrapped up, Santa Claus came out and gave
Foley a jacket as Christmas music was played in the background. Foley’s
speech went almost an hour and was the person who spoke the longest.
