Mick Foley Vs Edge Wrestlemania 22
This match was amazing for so many reasons, mainly the fact that Foley was six years past his official retirement and – at the start of the match – appeared to be very out of shape.
As it turned out, the hardcore legend was wearing a 2nd shirt to hide the fact he was wrapped in barbed wire, something Edge would find out when hitting Foley with the spear, causing himself just as much damage.
Being contested under hardcore rules gave Foley a massive advantage over the Rated R Superstar, with some foley trademarks making an appearance including thumbtacks, chair shots and barbwire baseball bat, even wrapping Mr Socko in barbed wire to give Lita the mandible claw.
The end of the contest saw a heavily bloodied Edge spear Foley from the apron through a burning table outside the ring, in what I consider the greatest finish to any Wrestlemania match in history. Not only did it show that Edge was a guy with balls of steel but it finally gave Foley a Wrestlemania match worthy of his stellar career.
