If you think Ward Melville grad Mick Foley, aka Mankind, aka Cactus Jack, aka Dude Love of WWE, won't get into the ring and scrap at FTW Wrestling's Rage in the Cage on Sept. 11, you're nuts.

Of course, he's only billed as a "special appearance," but c'mon. He's in his hometown area, there's going to be a cage around the ring and probably more than 500 fans at Centre Island Sports in Ronkonkoma.

Here's two more factors to consider: 

1) The Iron Sheik is also scheduled to appear for autographs and photos

2) It's the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

This is screaming for a revival of the Iron Sheik's bad guy role from the 1980s in WWE (back then, it was WWF) mixed in with a local boy. Buy some stock in Home Depot, Lowe's or Staples that weekend because they're going to sell lots of tables.

By the way, in the main event, the Grim Reefer defends his FTW world title in a rematch against Jay Lover. This time, it's in a steel cage. These two went at it pretty hard last time around, the highlights of which are in the video related below.
