WWE legend Mick Foley has confirmed that he will be attending an upcoming Sheffield United match after forming a strange friendship with striker Billy Sharp over social media.

Sharp recently caught Foley’s attention after celebrating a goal against Norwich by replicating the wrestler’s infamous ‘Socko’ gimmick, which led to the pair exchanging compliments on Twitter.

Things then proceeded to snowball to the point that the Blades invited Foley to come and watch Sharp in action at Bramall Lane – an offer he most eagerly accepted.

Lo and behold, the planets have aligned.

With Foley due to come to the UK to appear at a wrestling show on the weekend of 12th March, the 53-year-old hardcore superstar has confirmed that he plans to attend United’s Championship game against Brentford earlier that same day.

Whether Foley intends on serving as special guest referee for the match remains to be seen. Hopefully, he’s planning to pack his black-and-white striped shirt just in case.

Honestly, these must be scenes from a parallel universe that have leaked through the continuum somehow.
