on

Mick Foley recently appeared on Terri Runnel’s podcast entitled “Cigars, Scars & Superstars”. During the interview, he addressed why he never got his teeth fixed, told a hilarious story about Stone Cold Steve Austin & More. Here are the highlights:

On Why He Never Got His Two Front Teeth Fixed:

The two top teeth are like a trademark look. Even when I met Collette, she preferred the way I looked without them. I believe she threw the adjective sexy at me and that wasn’t something I was used to hearing. So, I would only put the tooth in when we were fighting. I had them at the time I had an ’84 Chrysler Lebaron. They still had the ashtray back then and I would keep the teeth in the ashtray. ‘I’ll put the teeth in,’ and it was literally, ‘Fine if that’s the way…fine.’ ‘It is the way it’s gonna be, alright.’ The other two were casualties of the Hell in a Cell match and so they were put back in.

They were knocked out in the Hell in a Cell. They were put back in, right? Over the course of time they started decaying and rotting. They weren’t new. They were the same teeth that were knocked out, but they were inserted back into my mouth. When I got back from the Hell in a Cell match they were in a glass of milk….what’s odd is that when I did the 20 years of Hell show in Pittsburgh, twenty years to the date, the dentist that put them back in was in the audience. He was on call and they said, ‘There was an accident. A wrestler’s coming in with teeth.’ There was not only those two. I have two more teeth that need to go twenty years after the fact. There are four teeth that are impacted.

Foley On Other Wrestlers’ Responses To Finding Out That He’s Never Smoked Pot:

The fact that I did not smoke marijuana made the other guys – and word started getting around, ‘I think this guy really is crazy.’ What? They’re like, ‘You have it in the car.’ I’m like, ‘No, no I don’t.’ Never have. Never smoked. Never have. ‘He’s legitimately insane.’

Foley On A Hilarious Memory With Stone Cold Steve Austin:

I’ll jump ahead to ’96 and share a little Steve Austin story with you. involving Dewey and noise. We were in Bangor, Maine at a house show and they had wooden bleachers, a lot of noise. One of those 2,000 seaters where the atmosphere is great. Stone Cold looks out and he sees Dewey holding his ears. Dewey in ’96 would have been 3 and a half. Noelle was a year and a half old and he was like, ‘Oh damn…he’s been holding his ears the whole time?’ I said, ‘Not when you wrestled. He held his nose,’ and Steve popped big time. Big time! I remembered it for years.
