WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has said there was a time when he was bothered for being primarily remembered for his infamous fall at King of the Ring 1998.
Speaking to FanFest News, the hardcore legend said how that whilst it bothered him, he grew to accept it.
He said: "As is often the case with iconic characters whether it be Batman or the Fonz, after a while you stop regretting it and realize how lucky you are to be a part of something people remember so fondly."
Foley, as Mankind, faced the Undertaker at King of the Ring 1998. Starting the match on top of the Hell In A Cell structure, the Undertaker threw Foley off the roof minutes into the match.
Foley continued to compete, falling through the roof onto the ring later on, before landing in thumbtacks.
Speaking on the 20th anniversary of the infamous match, Foley said:
"I’ve had a great time bringing that night back to life on stage and I enjoy talking about it with a lot of people who were not even born when that match took place 20 years ago.”
