About this BookThe world famous pro wrestler and #1 New York Times bestselling author recounts the blood, sweat and tears behind his knock-down, drag-out comeback that was his debut in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling [TNA] against archrival Sting.
The fierce, fearless, and sometimes self-destructive man behind the in-ring personas of Cactus Jack, Mankind, and Dude Love, Mick Foley remains the undisputed literary king of the squared circle. In this mesmerizing hand-written memoir, The Hardcore Legend chronicles the heart-punding buildup to his TNA debut, the TNA PPV event Lockdown-in which every match is contested inside a Steel Cage-one of the most important matches in his long and storied career that began in 1983. Every limit of Foley's is tested as he comes out of retirement and overcomes a host of injuries to get back into the ring with one of his most formidable-and legendary-opponents. Previously untold stories are also dished out from his remarkable life, including the transition from World Wrestling Entertainment [WWE] to TNA, his stint as a ringside announcer for WWE's Smackdown brand, his tumultuous relationship with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, his feelings and thoughts on steroid use in wrestling, the tragic story of Chris Benoit, and his soul-saving charity work in Sierra Leone.
Raw, frenetic, and packed with a ginormous amount of adrenaline, Countdown to Lockdown charts Mick Foley's rebirth and rise to heights that fans of The Hardcore Legend thought he would never see again. Have a nice day!
