WWE legend Mick Foley joins The Wiggles on stage to perform their classic hit Fruit Salad

Old-school professional wrestling fans know Mick Foley as Mankind or Cactus Jack.

But fans saw a very different side of the ‘Hardcore Legend’ during the New Zealand leg of his Nice Day speaking tour this week.

After touching down at Christchurch Airport, the 57-year-old ran into children’s entertainers The Wiggles.

In addition to posing for photos with the group, Foley even performed their hit Fruit Salad at his show that night.

The former WWF Champion admitted to being a big fan of the band, telling his followers his children loved The Wiggles in the ’90s.  

‘What a surprise it was to run into @thewiggles at the baggage claim in #Christchurch New Zealand!’ he said.

‘This band was so popular with my children. I once took Dewey and Noelle to a great Wiggles show at Radio City Music Hall in 1998 or 1999,’ he continued.

‘In appreciation for the years of entertainment these awesome Aussies have provided all four Foley children, we did a rousing sing-a-long of Fruit Salad at last night’s show!

‘This has been such a great tour, and I’m looking forward to concluding it in grand style with tomorrow’s tour finale in Auckland.’

The Wiggles also posted a photo of themselves with the wrestling icon.

‘Look who we bumped into in Christchurch – WWE Wrestling Hall of Famer and living legend @realmickfoley!’ they said.

‘Mick even busted out a version of Fruit Salad at his show last night! Great to see you, mate.’

Foley has been touring Australia and New Zealand over the last few weeks as part of his Nice Day tour.

The show sees the father of four and New York Times bestselling author tell classic wrestling stories and answer questions from the audience.
