• Mick Foley Replaced Goldberg In A 2004 Match

On May 8, 2004, Mick Foley did the job to Triple Crown Champion Toshiaki Kawada at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan for the HUSTLE promotion on their Hustle-3 PPV.

Apparently the Hardcore Legend replaced WCW Legend Bill Goldberg that night. Goldberg was originally scheduled to face Kawada, but got injured during training and had to pull out.

Here’s what Foley tweeted:

“I arrived in Japan for this match in a wheelchair, and left Japan in a wheelchair — but I did the match!

This was my last appearance in Japan — 17 years ago, today.

I’d love to go back to Japan for a convention sometime.

When my agent told me I could make Bill’s money, I told him I couldn’t walk, but I’d be in that ring!”

Foley was in a wheelchair because he competed in a brutal No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere Match against then Intercontinental Champion Randy Orton at the WWE Backlash 2004 PPV.
