Mick Foley Says The Reason He Stopped Staying With Fans Was Due To A Crack Dealer


Speaking on the latest edition of his “Foley Is Pod,” WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley looked back on the time he would stay with the fans while he was on the road in an effort to save money.

Additionally, the Hardcore Legend recalled one occasion where he stayed with a fan whose girlfriend turned out to be a crack dealer.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On how back in the day, Mick would stay with fans to save money on the road: “Do you know why I stopped? This is a true story. I won’t tell the name of the indie manager, he’s deceased. It wouldn’t be fair to him. He was a good guy, a pretty good manager. He was a magician. So he would use a foreign object and make it disappear; use a cane, boom! It’s gone.”

On a group of fans showing up to the house early in the morning: “It’s cooler and funnier to say staying on the couch instead of a spare bedroom. I usually stayed in a spare bedroom when I stayed with fans. I was WWE Champion, I’m staying at the house. At about eight in the morning, people start coming by the house! And I don’t ever want to talk down about any of my fans, but this was… kind of a ragged group of people, coming by early in the morning.”

On not wanting to look down on any fan: “I remember thinking to myself, “Hey. You’re the WWE champion. Who the heck are you to look down on anyone because of the way they dress or look. I had to really have that talk with myself. So I went out and I met some people. They didn’t seem that into me, like I thought they would be, given that they come by eight-thirty in the morning to meet the WWE champion.”

On learning the real reason people came to that house at eight AM: “So that night, he calls up to apologize. I say hey, it’s understandable. This is probably the only opportunity they’ll have to meet the champ. He goes, they won’t there to meet you. I draw a blank, right? He said, oh, my girlfriend’s a crack dealer. I went “ahhhhhhh I’m out of there.” And I never stayed with a fan again.”

On becoming a two-star hotel man: “My girlfriend’s a crack dealer” (laughs). That was when I had a long look in the mirror. I said to myself, you’re Mick f’n Foley, and you will become a two-star (hotel) man. And now? I’m a three-star man.”
