He wasn't "just" a person, he was a really cool person.

HIAC is the only reason I looked at Undertaker as more than a cartoon character, the reason I started taking Rock seriously (Rock and Austin proved he was a star, his matches with Mankind made him seem dangerous), and the only reason I can take HHH seriously is because of his fued with Foley.

In my opinion, Foley was one of the best carpenters of the Attitude era, and possibly of all-time. He was a great opponent for Austin, Shawn Michaels, Rock, HHH and Undertaker. Not many people can boast that versatility. I think that his influence in the WWF's late 90s success is understated by the company and even by himself. He's only behind Austin, Rock, Vince and maybe JR in terms of getting that shit over. The company will put Undertaker and HHH before Foley, and that's just not true.
Yeah I was saying he a human like anyone else.
