What was Mick Foley’s best gimmick?

1. Dude Love

2. Cactus Jack

3. Deranged Mankind

4. Funny Mankind

5. Mick Foley “hardcore legend” with no gimmick

I think the Deranged Mankind gimmick was Foley’s best character. WWF created the persona to feud with The Undertaker and it was one of the few times they got it right. His deranged, twisted, and tortured soul character really cancelled out the undead mystique of the Undertaker. It was one of the few times you really felt Undertaker was in danger of not winning a feud. Mankind eventually transformed into a more comedic angle and then became popular enough that his own name was well respected. Foley has said in past interviews that he always had problems playing that role, but to me some of the most memorable things he did was with the deranged Mankind gimmick.

Just the normal Mick Foley did the job for me.
Although, Dude Love was a different amusing gimmick.

Cactus Jack always seemed like a real badass guy to me. Plus never get tired of Styles yelling Cactus Clothesline during a match when they go over the top rope.

Cactus Jack. Especially the anti-hardcore Jack in ECW..... during that run he gave us Quite possibly the greatest promos of all time

The Deranged Mankind when he put The Mandible claw on Jim "Jimmy" Ross and went nuts

my favorite was always the later incarnation of mankind - sweatpants, white button up and socko... some of his best promos were done during his rock n sock days.

Well, fans from Philly, NY and Britain are apparently the most knowledgable :p
