The 15 freakiest falls in sports-entertainment history

#15 Mick Foley and Terry Funk – Raw, Feb. 2, 1998

Mick Foley and Terry Funk have never been accused of failing to leave it all in the ring. But leaving it all in a dumpster?  They did that, too, but by the bad graces of The New Age Outlaws.

On the Feb. 2, 1998, Raw, Foley and Funk competed under their alter-egos of Cactus Jack and Chainsaw Charlie in a No Holds Barred match, and both brought out dumpsters that were filled to the brim with some hardcore tools of the trade for their usage. Eventually, their battle advanced to the stage, where Cactus’ dumpster was. Charlie set up a table, but was backdropped from it into the dumpster by Cactus. From there, Jack made his way up to the base of the TitanTron, where he delivered a flying elbow into the dumpster.

Then, out of nowhere came The Outlaws. They sealed the dumpster shut, and proceeded to blatantly push it off the side of the stage. The visual of this ghastly sight paled in comparison to the eventual opening of the dumpster, revealing both Cactus and Charlie barely conscious from their traumatic fall. — HOWARD FINKEL
