Mick Foley: I Encouraged Britt Baker To Get Her Own ‘Wanted’ Shirt, I'm All For It

Mick Foley says he has given Britt Baker his blessing to borrow from one of his iconic shirts.

Foley has had a legendary career in the wrestling world. He had remarkable runs as Cactus Jack, Mankind, and Dude Love, among other highlights, and the legacy of Cactus Jack's "Wanted" shirt lives on, as some wrestlers have borrowed from the design. Foley recently gave former AEW Women's World Champion Britt Baker his blessing to do so, as the black-and-yellow shirt would be fitting for the Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

Speaking on Foley Is Pod, the WWE Hall of Famer noted that he'd be at the Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo, and multiple AEW stars would be there as well. He then brought up his friendship with Britt Baker

“It’s always fun. I think the fans like to know that, behind the scenes, almost all of us get along, and that there’s a nice little friendship there with me and Doctor Britt] Baker. So whatever you see on social media is just teasing a little bit," Foley said.

Foley went on to describe how he gave Baker his blessing to borrow from his classic "Wanted" t-shirt. He explained that it's a natural fit, given the shirt's black-and-yellow design and Baker's connection with the Pittsbirgh Steelers. The legend also made it clear that he'd rather see wrestlers have their own versions of the shirt than unofficial bootlegs of the design.

"I even gave [Baker], I said, you know, Britt, you ought to see if they could do a…,’ somebody was wearing a Cactus Jack ‘Wanted’ shirt, I said those are Pittsburgh Steeler colors. I said, ‘You ought to see if they could modify that and make it a shirt for you.’ She goes, ‘Would you mind?’ I said, ‘No, I’ve been making money off that and been happy to see people wearing it for literally 28 years now.’ So when The Briscoes had their ‘Wanted’ shirt, that’s cool by me, I’m doing fine. I’d much rather The Briscoes have their own ‘Wanted’ shirt than to have a bootleg ‘Wanted’ shirt out there. But I see it as a tribute, I see it as a good thing. Nobody copies or borrows from something that’s not good. So I’m all for Doctor Baker rocking a Cactus-esque t-shirt. Make it happen, TK. You know you can make it happen," Foley said.
