Mick Foley visits the Hall of Fame, places the 1st plaque for Terry Funk
6/10/2022 - Albany, New York - Executives of the International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame were surprised and excited to see a familiar face at the front doors to the IPWHF museum at the MVP Arena on Thursday June 9, 2022.
Pro wrestling legend Mick Foley stopped by the IPWHF museum for a tour of the facility and hold an impromptu ceremony honoring his beloved mentor and IPWHF 2021 Inductee, the legendary Terry Funk.
Mick was in Albany for his live show the previous evening and graciously took time out of his busy schedule to stop by the MVP Arena and see "The Hall" up close and personal. During his visit, Mick received a tour of the facility and even had the opportunity to see some of the artifacts received from the recently defunct PWHF in Wichita Falls, TX.
IPWHF President Seth Turner and Vice President Michael Lanuto were treated to an historic,
impromptu ceremony as Mick had the honor of hanging the first plaque in the Hall's history. After penning a personal message, Mick carefully set the induction plaque in place for his beloved mentor and friend, the legendary Terry Funk. Video of the ceremony can be viewed at Mick Foley visits the Hall of Fame, places the 1st plaque for Terry Funk.
Before leaving, Mick took some time to check out a few of the artifacts being inventoried and prepped for display; items such as robes worn by the late, great "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff and the late Dominic DeNucci.
We at the IPWHF are extremely grateful to Mick Foley for stopping by and sharing a special moment with us and we encourage everyone to check out Mick's show as it makes its way up and down the coast. Information on Mick's upcoming schedule can be found at: http://www.realmickfoley.com.
