On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, famous WWF Legend Mick Foley revealed that he’s the only Superstar in WWF/WWE history that was billed shorter than his actual real-life height.
It’s common knowledge that wrestling promoters worldwide – but especially the WWF/WWE – always had the tendency to bill their pro-wrestling stars as taller than they actually are and heavier than they actually are.
Exaggerating the height and weight of Pro Wrestlers is a widely spread practice, and most fans know that by now.
Here’s what Mick Foley had to say:
“Well, I was a legit 6 feet 4 inches, right? But they usually just announced your weight.
And I think at the time of my first match, I was 220.
I think in the history of WWF, WWE, I’m the only guy to come in being billed as being shorter than he is.”
During his long, illustrious career, 2013 WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley wrestled for several major promotions, including the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA, now IMPACT Wrestling).
His most famous gimmicks were Cactus Jack (WCW, ECW, WWF), Mankind (WWF) and Dude Love (WWF), but he also wrestled as himself quite a bit.
