Mick Foley Ejected From Wings Eating Contest: WWE Hall of Famer Caught Cheating At Wing Bowl In Philadelphia [VIDEO]
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is a Hardcore Legend, but there was nothing legendary about his performance in a wings eating contest Thursday night.
Foley, who was once praised for his barbaric bouts and frantic falls, was disgraced during a wings eating contest on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia when he took a page out of the book of fellow WWE Hall of Famer and "Dirtiest Player in the Game" Ric Flair.
According to TMZ, the three-time WWE Champion was seen stuffing chicken wings into his coveted fanny pack during Philadelphia's biggest chicken wing eating contest. Foley was then swiftly ejected from the competition.
Foley, who has been known to longtime wrestling fans as Mankind, Cactus Jack and Dude Love depending on which persona he felt like donning that day, participated against some of the world's biggest eaters in Wing Bowl 23 when the officials of the contest caught him cheating.
Foley disagreed with the call at first, but once the video screen high above the Wells Fargo Center showed him actively stuffing some of the wings into his fanny pack, his fate was sealed.
According to the report, favorite Molly Schuyler, who is an up-and-comer in competitive eating, was upset by Patrick Bertoletti, who put down an astounding 444 chicken wings in 26 minutes.
For his part, Foley, the WWE's inaugural Hardcore Champion, is having fun with being revealed as a cheater in the wings eating contest by TMZ on his official Twitter account:

Not even Mr. Socko can bail the Hardcore Legend out of this mess.
