WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has revealed that he encouraged AEW star Britt Baker to have merchandise inspired by Cactus Jack.
One of the most iconic wrestling t-shirts ever was Cactus Jack’s ‘wanted’ design, which depicted the hardcore legend on a western-style wanted poster.
Speaking on his Foley is Pod podcast, Foley noted that he gave Baker his blessing to make her own version of the shirt.
Noting that he sees similar designs as tributes, Foley said:
“I even gave (Baker), I said, you know, Britt, you ought to see if they could do a…,’ somebody was wearing a Cactus Jack ‘Wanted’ shirt, I said those are Pittsburgh Steeler colors.
“I said, ‘You ought to see if they could modify that and make it a shirt for you.’ She goes, ‘Would you mind?’ I said, ‘No, I’ve been making money off that and been happy to see people wearing it for literally 28 years now.’
“So when The Briscoes had their ‘wanted’ shirt, that’s cool by me, I’m doing fine. I’d much rather The Briscoes have their own ‘wanted’ shirt than to have a bootleg ‘wanted’ shirt out there.
“But I see it as a tribute, I see it as a good thing. Nobody copies or borrows from something that’s not good. So I’m all for Doctor Baker rocking a Cactus-esque t-shirt. Make it happen, TK. You know you can make it happen.”
Baker last wrestled on the April 19 edition of Dynamite, teaming with AEW Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter to defeat Ruby Soho & Toni Storm.
Tony Khan recently indicated that Baker will ‘never get along’ with another top AEW star, which you can read more about right here.
