It started with an opening local comic who was funny, but thankfully kept his act brief, as we were all waiting to see Foley. He finally came out and did his act, which was incredibly funny. He told all kinds of stories from his career, dealt with a heckler in hilarious fashion, then opened up for a Q&A, which, to the crowd's surprise, featured Orlando locals Eugene (Nick Dinsmore), Socal Val, Terri Runnels, and Scotty 2 Hotty. I asked him what he remembered fondly about working with TNA (given it was an Orlando crowd, most had been to the Impact Zone at some point), which got him talking about his feud with Ric Flair. During the Q&A, Bully Ray came in through the crowd and crashed the Q&A, only to ask Foley to sign his copy Tales from Wrescal Lane, which was an awesome moment. Afterwards, there was a free meet and greet, where Foley took photos and signed autographs (he signed my handmade Mr. Socko!) and made a point to stick around until EVERYONE had their time with him, which was awesome. In conclusion, if you are in one of the towns hosting his next shows, do yourself a favor and go. Tickets aren't that expensive, and the entire experience was awesome. Mick Foley has been my hero since I was a kid, and common wisdom says to never meet your heroes, because they will inevitably disappoint you. However, Foley is the light-yet-big hearted exception, and his status in my eyes has only risen.
Ryan Mulloy sent this report. ... Hulk Hogan was interviewed on SportsRadio 94.1 WIP in Philadelphia yesterday with Glen Macnow & Anthony Gargano. Hogan was a the mystery guest on the show's weekly "Who's That Guy?," a feature where Gargano & the listeners ask a series of yes/no questions to the guest (who disguises their voice) until they can correctly guess who the guest is. Hogan talked about a number of subjects, including Rocky III, Philadelphia, Hulkamania, Andre and more. NOTE: "Who's That Guy?" takes the first 8 minutes, and is particularly brutal. Whatever Hogan is doing to disguise his voice is beyond terrible, but the rest of the interview is pretty solid. Hogan will be at the Sports Vault in King of Prussia on 11/8 from 7-9. Tickets are available on their site or in store. Here's the link: http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/audio/954-anthony-gargano-glen-macnow/
