Review of Mick Foley's Greatest Hits and Misses Hardcore Edition

Foley may have not been one of the most athletic of pro-wrestlers but his willingness to put his body on the line and his storytelling ability made him one of the most loved superstars of all time. This DVD charts the majority of his standout matches (with a couple of notable absences) with Foley reflecting on them with his trademark self deprecating witty banter. My personal favourites include his outstanding match against Shawn Michaels in 1996 and my all time favourite Foley match being that of his hardcore match against Randy Orton in 2004, a match which in my opinion takes the template of his match against Triple H in 2000 (one much beloved by fans but in my opinion is slightly overrated, the blatant switch for the fake barbwire 2x4 ruins my suspension of disbelief every time) and improves on it. Have to mention the extras on this set too, as they're truly excellent, special mention for those amazing ECW promos, which are genuinely some of the best Iv'e seen in the whole of wrestling.

Great review. There'll be a few matches I'll be sure to check out on. It's not a bout people will be talking about in a hundred years time but I personally liked the tag team dumpster match he did alongside Terry Funk against the New Age Outlaws in Wrestlemania XIV. I thought everything about it at the time was pretty creative, the ending in particular. JR and Jerry Lawler were in fine form, saying the right things at the right time. I also found the antagonism between these guys very compelling.

It would be brilliant if they released some of the brutal death matches he did for Japan that he raved about in his autobiography as well as some from his WCW years. Then it would just about wrap up this man's legacy to the fullest extent.
