WWE Star Mick Foley Really Loves Whataburger, Y'all


WWE legend Mick Foley may have been in San Antonio for Hell in a Cell on Sunday, but he may have had more fun after the pay-per-view event.

On Monday, Foley, better known as his wrestler persona Mankind (along with Cactus Jack and Dude Love), took to Twitter to share his love for Whataburger. In hopes of getting the attention of the Texas-based burger chain, he shared a photo of himself with an employee pointing at the iconic orange-and-white sign.
He went as far as to call himself the "biggest Whataburger fan in the land."

Foley doesn't take that statement lightly. In a 2016 interview with the San Antonio Express-News, the wrestler said he'd leave his wife for Whataburger.

Whataburger was flattered and later retweeted the photo.
