By Ciaran-James @TheCiaranJames 

The “Saturday Spotlight” is a new weekly piece looking at the amazing, wacky world of professional wrestling.

Although this match took place 21 years ago at WWF In Your House: Mind Games, it still today stands tall as one WWE’s best matches. At a time when Shawn Michaels was arguably the best wrestler on the world, he took on the challenge of the underrated Mick ‘Mankind’ Foley who had a reputation for hardcore matches. This was one of HBK’s first title defenses and one of his best, for Mankind this was just another example of how quietly talented he was. Never one to boast, Mick Foley made a career out of giving you a performance you never expected and never forgot. Enjoy!
