This was one of the last times i guess I was genuinely surprised and really into an angle- I Loved Cactus Jack and wasn't really wild about Mankind-didn't like the mask. Then after all the indepth interviews and Mankind teasing multiple personalities-there was the big payoff-Cactus returned and I was even a fan of Dude Love as well-so what are your thoughts and memories of this?

For some reason, Mick standing there as Mankind, admitting he's not enough to face Triple H and simply removing his mask and button shirt to become Cactus Jack is still one of the biggest markout moments of my life. It was so perfect.

Yeah, the time he came out as every single personality during the Royal Rumble was the only real kick I got out of his whole "3 faces" phase. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't one of my favorite angles either.

Those interviews with him and JR were some of the best of Foley's career, and that is saying something. I loved how Mankind evolved in 1997, and how you realized that this guy was not a monster, but a real person. I loved how for weeks and weeks, he would come out and wrestle with a "Pick me Steve" sign on, and once Steve Austin told him no, he came out the next week as Dude Love. I was a huge mark for the Dude back in the day as well.
