Ric Flair Vs. Mick Foley
[August 20th, 2006]
In one of SummerSlam’s bloodiest brawls, professional wrestling legends Mick Foley and Ric Flair faced off in an “I Quit” Match. The feud began over comments made in their respective books, Foley citing Flair as being out for himself as a booker and Flair recalling Foley as being a “glorified stuntman”. These two, hellbent on proving who the better man is, fought tooth and nail in several big match environments, perhaps this match being the biggest. In the closing moments of the bout, Foley’s friend Melina came down to try to save her friend, even draping herself over Foley as Flair was prepared to swing a baseball bat down onto the two. Because of this, Foley quit the match in order to save Melina. The following night, Foley was ordered to join the Vince McMahon Kiss My Ass Club, or Melina would lose her job. Foley complied, but was soon low-blowed by Melina and fired at the behest of Mr. McMahon.
