WWE wrestling fans, get ready to step in the ring: Mick Foley is coming to Victoria on Aug. 28!

The legendary American wrestler is coming to town as part of his Twenty Years of Hell tour, and will treat fans to a mesmerizing tale of the most famous match of his career—Hell in a Cell on June 28, 1998.

That night, Foley somehow survived two spine rattling falls off of a steel-mesh cage structure, shrugged off a stint of unconsciousness, and finished the match with a front tooth lodged in his nose.

Foley will bring a blend of wit and wisdom that shot two of his memoirs to the top of the New York Time’s bestseller’s list to Distrikt for a 90-minute Q&A with fans.

The so-called ‘Hardcore Legend’ earned notoriety for being able to withstand inhuman levels of punishment. Now retired from wrestling, he’s made a career as a spoken word artist, actor, author, and comedian.

Tickets are on sale online as of Tuesday morning, and will be available at Lyle’s Place and The Strathcona Hotel starting Friday, July 6.
