Scarcely believable as it may be, WWE legend Mick Foley appears to have struck up a friendship with Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp.
It all began back in January when Sharp caught Foley's attention by celebrating his goal against Norwich by paying homage to the wrestler's famous "Mr Socko" gimmick.
This led to the pair exchanging messages of mutual gratitude on Twitter, with Foley thanking Sharp for getting his name trending and Sharp thanking Foley for the sock-based inspiration.
THANK YOU @billysharp10 for single-handedly getting this broken down dude trending! You just passed those @NYCosmos greats of my youth - Beckenbauer, Tueart...even PELE as my FAVORITE FOOTBALLER EVER! @SoccerAM pic.twitter.com/dZE9hMf3D4- Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) 27 January 2019
