Here we take a look at 5 wrestlers that pay homage to others with the body of work.
#5 Wade Barret pays homage to Mick Foley
Mick Foley, as far as doctors are concerned, should and will not wrestle again. After years of giving everything he had to the business it all got too much and he now has to enjoy a life of retirement from in-ring action.
In a match between The Miz on the April 8th edition of Monday night Raw in 2013, Wade hit The Miz with Mick’s patented elbow drop to the outside of the ring. Before hitting the move Barrett even shot the pistols with his fingers to the crowd signalling that it was, in fact, Mick Foley that he was paying homage to.
