His legacy is getting thrown off the top of a 25 foot cage and mutilating himself in Japan. Not my idea of a wrestler but had a huge impact in ruining wrestling to the point that it hasnt recovered even yet.
I hate when people say this. I know that he will be remembered for his insane stunts and what he gave to the industry. On the other hand, there were some great moments that didn't need a huge spot. I actually think what made him so over-the-top good was he combined a great feud with an insane final spot. Edge vs. Foley was tremendous and ended in a huge spot. Taker/Mankind was unreal. Mankind's character was amazing at that time. Rock and Sock Connection. His backstage humor mixed with his ability to put on a good solid match.
This guy is way more than just a stuntman. Well-deserved.
