#tbt Cactus Jack’s “Cane Dewey” promo

Before Foley signed on with the WWF in 1996, Foley spent parts of 95-96 wrestling in ECW as Cactus Jack.

This particular promo occurred in Philadelphia in 1995. “Cane Dewey” is in reference to sign a fan made about physical abuse towards Foley’s then 3-year-old son Dewey Foley.  In a 2013 interview with WWW.com, Foley admitted he didn’t have an issue with the sign originally. It was actually his wife who him convinced that the sign was disgusting.

Foley also admits to spitting on that guy at the next show.

This is the best promo of Foley’s career hands down. It’s one of the rare times you really can’t tell if the wrestler is in character, or if he’s completely giving you that real life shit.
