Yesterday on Facebook, Mick Foley shared a story about asking his friend Kevin Nash to keep an eye out for a fan of his at an independent wrestling show he was scheduled for in Meadville, Pennsylvania. Despite not getting to induct Big Daddy Cool into the WWE Hall of Fame last month, Nash and Foley are friends, so the Mickster was expecting the seven footer to maybe take a picture with the guy, sign an autograph...the usual.
But on Saturday night (April 11, 2015) at the International Wrestling Cartel (IWC) Night of Superstars 4 show, the former Diesel did a little bit more than the usual for the fan. After winning his six-man tag match over the Dead Wrestling Society with John McChesney & Asylum, Nash invited Johnny, who has Downs Syndrome, into the ring to celebrate.
In the above video (also brought to us by Cagesider fortek13 in a FanShot yesterday), you can see him - in his kayfabe persona of Rockin' Johnny - lead the crowd in a DX salute and just generally have a blast living the dream.
Props to Foley, Nash and the whole IWC crew for a great moment.
