WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has recorded himself performing the famous “Hard Times” promo as one of his popular alter-egos.
At Mid-Atlantic Wrestling in 1985, Dusty Rhodes cut one of the most iconic promos of all time. Dubbed the “Hard Times promo”, Rhodes sent a message to Ric Flair, vowing to become the next World Heavyweight Champion.
Mick Foley has now paid tribute to these immortal words. Foley recorded himself cutting the unforgettable promo as his popular face, Mankind.

Foley tagged Cody, Dustin and Brandi Rhodes in the tweet, noting that he hopes the Rhodes family enjoys his homage. Foley charges $7.99 for Direct Messages and $99 for videos on Cameo.
Cody Rhodes isn’t the only AEW talent that Foley talks to. In a recent interview, Britt Baker noted that the hardcore legend was one of the first to reach out to her after her Lights Out match against Thunder Rosa.
In AEW women’s division news, Hikaru Shida retained her AEW Women’s Championship last night on Dynamite. Her challenger, Tay Conti, was praised by a top WWE star shortly after.
