Always forget just how much I love the Foley/HHH street fight from Royal Rumble, ***** for me and Foleys best match.
A few star ratings for his bigger matches

vs Taker KOTR 1998 ****3/4
vs Rock Royal Rumble 1999 ****1/2
vs HHH No Way Out 2000 ****
vs Orton Backlash 2004 ****1/2 (this match for me made Orton)
Fucking RIGHTS. Anybody who's legacy consists of putting off great match after great match and giving it their everything physically, mentally and politically (putting EVERYBODY over) deserves to be mentioned as one of the greatest of all time. It's a sad scenario, but I don't think Foley gets as much credit as he deserves because of his tendency to put over younger guys , thus making himself look (kayfabe) weak, atleast in the eyes of the causal fan.

vs Trips RR 00 : ***** (6th greatest match ever)
vs Rock RR 99 : **** 1/4
vs Taker KOTR 98 : **** 1/4
vs Trips NWO 00 : **** 1/2
vs Orton BL 04 : **** 1/4

List of guys Foley help MAKE ; HHH, Edge, Randy Orton, The Rock, Steve Austin, Kane, Big Show, and a whole HOST of other big names. Dude is a straight up BO$$ and easily top 3 on the mic for me as well, up there with Flair and Piper.

"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
