* His first WWF/E championship win on December 29th. To quote MichaelCole, "Mankind did it! '''Mick Foley''' did it!" Take into account the sarcastic comment on Nitro (Tony Schiavone flippantly remarked "that's gonna put butts in seats"), and right after Foley's match WCW fans saw the FingerpokeOfDoom. That Foley's win happened on the night their biggest competition dropped the ball (they never recovered and would be buried two years later) is the cherry on the cake.

* And if you're going to mention Mick Foley promos, there's only two words you need to know: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28KH9YiJ9DI "Cane Dewey"]]. It's widely considered the best promo in Foley's career, and some have even gone as far as to call it the best in the history of the industry.

* A couple weeks before ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 2000'', Vince decides to have the scheduled main event for ''WrestleMania'' (a triple threat between Wrestling/TripleH, Wrestling/TheBigShow, and [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] for the WWF Championship free on ''Raw''. The match commences with Triple H just barely squeezing out a victory but happy he doesn't have to compete at ''[=WrestleMania=]'' now. Then, [=Linda McMahon=] comes out and declares that Triple will instead compete in a Fatal Four Way elimination match against Rock, Big Show,... and Mick Foley. The crowd becomes positively unglued as Foley comes out and beats the crap out of Triple H and Big Show and hoists the WWE Title high above his head.

** In his book Foley Is Good, Mick gives a lot of credit to Triple H for how he reacted to Cactus Jack's return: if Triple H had laughed it off, the angle would have been dead before it got started. But by selling it as if Death Incarnate was coming to ringside, the angle ended up becoming the stuff of legends.

** To drive the point home, TheUndertaker was extremely reluctant about the first stunt, and in an unused camera shot (that has been released in segments that talk about the match) you can see that, for perhaps the only time in his career, 'Taker actually ''[[{{Kayfabe}} broke character]]'' when he saw Foley coming back down the aisle, staring through the cage with a 'WTF?' look on his face. Then there was getting up after the second, completely unplanned, far more damaging fall through the cell.

The Undertaker has said that after Mick fell through the cage, Taker thought he had actually killed him.

* His appearance, which he voiced himself, on ''CelebrityDeathmatch'' where he fought and killed ErnestHemingway! On top of that, he ends his night in the Deathmatch arena with a death drop ''from the arena ceiling'', which he had just headbutted his way through, taking out the entire ring, along with MillsLane, JamesHedfield and the dead remains of FredDurst. The way he kills Hemingway deserves special mention - he uses his Mr Socko/Mandible Claw attack to ''TEAR THE JAW OFF HEMINGWAYS SKULL!!''

* His famous Hell in a Cell match against Wrestling/TheUndertaker may be one of the all-time greatest examples of looking strong in defeat. If this isn't HeroicResolve, ''nothing is''. The guy took so much punishment (both scripted ''and'' accidental), he got carried out of the ring on a stretcher...and then ''got up and kept wrestling despite his injuries.'' This happened ''twice''. Then, after the match, he refused to go to the hospital so he could stay for the championship match. There is a reason the fans believe Mick Foley is indestructible.
