I'm a Foley mark. I love pretty much everything Foley did until his involvement in the Four Way at WM 2000. Since then he's been spotty at best. In fact, the only things that come to mind in this decade are the Orton and Flair feuds, and only the Orton feud really delivered in the ring (although the Flair feud on the mic was awesome). First book was great, second was pretty good. Never read any of his others. I love his Cactus work in WCW as well as his anti-hardcore, Dreamer-mentoring run in ECW. I even (laughed at) liked his Dude Love Lounge or whatever it was called. Great matches with Taker, Austin, Vader, Orton, HHH, Funk, Mikey Whipwreck, I could go on.

As far as where he ranks? He was WWF's number four guy in the Attitude Era, behind Austin, Rock and Taker (HHH, Jericho, Kane and Angle all tie for the fifth spot). If you add in WCW guys like DDP, Hogan, Goldberg, etc, he's still in the top ten for the late 90s.

No doubter Hall of Famer. In terms of influence, notoriety, former champ. He has all the "requirements," or whatever passes for them in the gimmick HoF.
