Mick Foley is finally getting what he's wanted for so long now:

Some details from the event page, where you can purchase tickets for the show:

He's a three-time WWE champion, a hardcore legend and a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. Now, Mick Foley is unleashing the same trademark blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that made his books so beloved (five self-penned New York Times best-sellers) into his one-man spoken-word stage show, "Tales From Wrestling Past". Foley has wowed both crowds and critics alike with his unique stage show - leading "Chortle", the UK's most respected comedy source to write "Foley himself is charm personified - eloquent, funny and self-effacing" and the decidedly non-wrestling publication "Broadway Baby" to muse, "if you're interested at all in wrestling you'll love it; if you're not, you'll like it." Drawing from his 28 years of travel, Foley finds humor in the unlikeliest of places. Foley himself refers to "Tales From Wrestling Past" as "like being in the ring, without getting hurt" - a welcome distinction coming from a man who gave so much, to so many, for so long. Join the Hardcore Legend on his latest journey down life's highway - an eclectic trip into the surreal world of the days of wrestling past.

They're also promising "additional WWE superstars and legends," so Foley won't be the only cool cat getting in on the action. Really, this is easy programming WWE always should have been scooping up for its Network. Jim Ross may be next on the list for a special.
