|Al Snow, Head, Mankind, & Mr. Socko (WWE)|

From time to time I like to take a break from scrutinizing the performances of Impact Wrestling and WWE and post something I file under the "Random, But Awesome" column on the My 1-2-3 Cents website. In the past I've written about some of my favorite animals in the wrestling world, today I'm going to look at some of the non living sidekicks wrestlers have adopted through the years.
Mr. Socko is probably my favorite of these inanimate objects. I'm pretty sure he made his debut during the Mr. McMahon hospital skit with Mankind. The sock puppet was so over, Mick Foley began using Mr. Socko in his matches. He would pull the sock from his tights and cram it into his opponent's mouth as he applied the dreaded mandible claw. The idea was that the sock was the disgusting and sweaty footwear of Foley and having it put into one's mouth was the ultimate insult to injury moment.
