”In April 1999, my mornings were already painful, even without a 450 pound man pummeling me. Big Snot was going to need to be led through this thing…

…For the second Boiler Room Brawl to succeed, I was going to need to absorb incredible amounts of punishment. Fortunately, I had an ace up my sleeve. Richard Posner is a genius. The guy can do more things with his two hands than anyone I have ever met, and that’s not including his love life. He has been responsible for the magic involved in Buried Alive matches…

…In 1999, however, my testicles no longer seemed quite so full of fortitude as they had in the past. Meekly, I approached Richie with a simple request. “Do you think you could come up with as much stuff as possible that looks painful, but that doesn’t hurt?”

So it came to pass that in April 1999, Mick Foley, the hardcore legend, used fake glass, fake steam, and even, dare I say it, fake blood in a match that turned out better than I could have ever expected. Don’t get me wrong— I still got the hell beaten out of me, but it was a good kind of hell beaten out of me…” - Mick Foley
