Mick Foley: Reach for the Ring & Smell the Roses Simultaneously

Mar 10, 2016, 02:25 AM

This is one of those dream shows for us at Edge of Sports. We’ve spoken to Kareem. We’ve spoken to Martina. Now we talk to Mick, as in pro wrestling legend Mick Foley. The hardcore legend is also a militant anti-sexist, a Tori Amos fan, and a national spokesperson for RAINN – the Rape Abuse Incest National Network. We in addition get him to answer whether Pro Wrestling deserves some of the blame for the rise of Donald Trump. To help me, I have my friend pro-wrestling aficionado Damian Smith riding shotgun. Also, in our Choice Words section, I speak about the alarming rise in the use of “Trump” as a racial slur at high school sporting events. Lastly, in the just stand up award, a big shout out to the first US Olympian to compete while wearing a hijab: fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad.—Mick Foley:http://realmickfoley.comhttp://twitter.com/RealMickFoleyhttp://fb.com/RealMickFoleyRape, Abuse & Incest National Network RAINN http://rainn.org/mickfoleyGet Help Online https://ohl.rainn.org/online/‘Trump’ Has Become a Racial Taunt at High School Sporting Events http://thenation.com/article/trump-has-become-a-racial-taunt-at-high-school-sporting-events/Olympic Fencer, a Muslim, Settled on a ‘Sport Without Alteration’ http://nyti.ms/1LdE7bA—http://twitter.com/edgeofsports | http://edgeofsportspodcast.com | http://fb.com/edgeofsportspod | edgeofsports@slate.com--Music: John Legend - Used To Love U (instrumental, Kanye West,) WWE: Wreck (Mick Foley) Theme Song, Winter - Tori Amos, NEDARB NAGROM - "mexikodro listens to american football once" http://soundcloud.com/nedarbnagrom
