6. Mick Foley

Foley was inspired to become a Superstar after watching Jimmy Snuka leap from the top of a steel cage in Madison Square Garden, Mick Foley adopted Superfly’s fearlessness when he entered the ring himself. While learning to wrestle, Foley had little money, having to sleep in his car.

As Cactus Jack, he earned a fan following not for winning matches, but for surviving them. In match with Vader, part of Foleys ear was ripped off when his head was caught in the ropes, but he managed to keep fighting, and has since become a hall of famer and a best selling author.
