Mick Foley's charity work may be an effort to build up such a backlog of good karma that he can spend the rest of his time hitting people with a bat wrapped in barbed wire. (6:12)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

MY GUEST TONIGHT A WRESTLER FOR

TNA WRESTLING AND "THE DAILY

SHOW" SENIOR ASS KICKER.

HE'S A BEST SELLING AUTHOR WHOSE

NEW BOOK IS CALLED "COUNTDOWN TO

LOCKDOWN."

PLEASE WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM

MICK FOLEY.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S REALLY YOU.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

WE SHOULD EXPLAIN.

WE HAD A TECHNICAL MALFUNCTION

WHEN MICK WALKED OUT.

HIS MICROPHONE KNOCKED OFF.

WE DID IT AGAIN.

THE CROWD JUST AS SURPRISED TO

SEE YOU THE SECOND TIME.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WHAT?

FOLEY, AGAIN?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

HOW YOU BE, BROTHER.

>> I'M DOING GREAT.

I'M JUST STILL RECOVERING FROM

THAT HIGH OF THE RALLY.

IT WAS AN AMAZING TIME.

>> Jon: WE HAD A GREAT TIME.

WEAR IT WITH PRIDE, BABY.

IT'S ALL YOU.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: YOU ARE SUCH AN

INTERESTING GUY TO ME.

FIRST OF ALL I LOVE THE BOOK.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "COUNTDOWN TO

LOCKDOWN."

YOUR NINTH BOOK.

>> INCLUDING THREE CHILDREN'S

BOOKS IT'S THE NINTH ONE.

>> Jon: THEY ARE VIOLENT

CHILDREN'S BOOKS.

THEY ADVOCATE VIOLENCE IN

CHILDREN.

[LAUGHTER]

NO.

YOU ARE SUCH AN INTERESTING GUY

BECAUSE YOUR ABILITY AS A WRITER

ARE SO -- IT FEELS EFFORTLESS

AND THE VERY REAL.

BUT YOU ARE THIS VERY FILL

TROPIC GUY.

YOU WORK WITH RAIN, RAPE ABUSE

NATIONAL NETWORK.

YOU DO INCREDIBLE WORK FOR THE

USO.

IN 1985 YOU WERE A LIFEGUARD FOR

MENTALLY CHALLENGED INDIVIDUALS.

>> I DID GET PAID FOR THAT JOB.

>> Jon: YOU GOT PAID BUT STILL

ALL THESE THINGS.

MY QUESTION TO YOU IS THIS?

IS THIS AN EFFORT, IF I MAY, TO

BUILD UP SUCH A BACKLOG OF GOOD

KARMA THAT YOU CAN SPEND THE

REST OF YOUR TIME HITTING PEOPLE

WITH A BAT WRAPPED IN BARBED

WIRE?

IS THAT WHAT THIS IS, SIR?

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT'S AMAZING, WHAT DO YOU GET

FROM THAT?

IS THAT SOMETHING YOU'VE ALWAYS

DONE?

>> THIS BOOK WAS IEW -- UNIQUE

TO ME.

I WAS ASKING IF THE WORLD REALLY

NEEDED A FOURTH MEMOIR.

NOW THAT I'VE SEEN THE BOOK

SALES, THE ANSWER WOULD APPEAR

TO BE NO.

>> Jon: THIS BOOK IS AWESOME,

BABY.

>> AS I WAS WRITING IT, IT WAS

INFLUENCED BY A UNIQUE PERSON

OF.

IT WAS A GIFT GIVEN TO ME.

I MADE THE DECISION TO DONATE

THE ENTIRE ADVANCE AND NOW THAT

I'VE SEEN THE SALES IT'S ALL OF

THE MONEY.

>> Jon: ALL OF PROCEEDS.

>>.

>> BUT FOR THE ASPIRING AUTHORS

WHO ARE THINKING ABOUT THEY

MIGHT WANT TO TELL THEIR WIFE

BEFORE SHE FINDS OUT BY READING

THE FLAP COVER.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: THIS IS -- THAT IS TO

THE RAINN NETWORK.

50% GOES TO RAINN AND CHILD FUND

INTERNATION.

>> Jon: YOU ARE A GOOD DUDE.

NOTHING NOTHING BUT A GOOD DUDE.

VERY NICE.

HOW -- IN THE BOOK YOU TALK

ABOUT HOW I USED TO PLAY A TORI

AMOS SONG.

>> YES.

>> Jon: I'M GOING TO REPEAT

THAT QUICKLY YOU USED TO MY A

TORI AMOS SONG TO PSYCH YOURSELF

UP FOR CERTAIN MATCHES.

>> RIGHT.

UPON FURTHER REFLECTION.

THE FIRST CHAPTER IS CALLED

MEETING TORI AMOS KWROES.

I MET HER IN 2008.

IF ANY OF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT

A 300 POUND MAN FLOATING LOOKS

LIKE.

>> Jon: YOU WERE THAT EXCITED?

>> I WAS REALLY TAKEN WITH HER.

I HAD NEVER BEEN ON THE COMPUTER

TO FIND TORI AMOS.

>> Jon: YOU FAMOUSLY WRITE

LONGHAND.

>> I DO WRITE LONGHAND.

I WENT ON AND LOGGED ON TO

RAINN.

LINKED IT.

I HAD KNOWN THAT SEXUAL ASSAULT,

RAPE WAS A SERIOUS PROBLEM BUT

AS A GUY I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS

SOMETHING I COULD HELP OUT WITH.

>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT.

>> I THOUGHT I COULD MAKE A

DIFFERENCE HERE.

HOPEFULLY I'VE DONE THAT.

NOT ONLY WITH THE PROCEEDS OF

THE BOOK BUT I'M ALSO A

VOLUNTEER ONLINE.

I DON'T WANT TO STEREOTYPE YOUR

AUDIO BUT THEY ARE A CARING

GROUP OF PEOPLE, RIGHT?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: I WOULD -- HOW DID THE

OTHER WRESTLERS REACT TO THE

FACT THAT YOU ARE PLAYING THE

SONG WINTER.

IS RICK FLAIR AT THE OTHER

LOCKER SAYING TRY SOME

MEGADEATH, MICK?

>> IT GAVE ME CONFIDENCE WITH

THE DANGEROUS MATCHES.

SOME OF THE STUFF I DID WAS FAR

FROM REASONABLE.

I COULD HAVE NEVER WORN THIS

METAL.

>> Jon: PHYSICALLY YOU DON'T

FOAL AS GIFTED BUT YOU MADE UP

FOR IT WITH FALLING FROM HIGHER

PLACES.

>> YES.

I COULD IN THE JUMP HIGH SO I

HAD TO JUMP FROM HIGH PLACES.

[LAUGHTER]

I KNOW THIS MAY SEEM OUT OF THE

BLUE BUT AS AN AUTHOR IS IT OKAY

IF I BLATANTLY PLUG A BOOK.

>> Jon: ABSOLUTELY.

>> NOT MINE.

THIS IS SAM BEE'S BOOK.

>> Jon: WHEN A PLUG FOR SAM

BEE'S BOOK?

>> SHE REALLY DID IT WITH THE

INSCRIPTION.

IT'S NOT JUST LIKE BEST OF LUCK.

>> Jon: SHE SIGNED IT TO YOU?

>> TONIGHT, JON, I'M GOING ON

THE RED EYE TOP LONDON AND THIS

IS NOT ONLY A GREAT BOOK BUT

ALSO A HANDY BONER SHIELD.

[LAUGHTER]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

READ AND COVER.

>> Jon: YOU REALLY JUST DON'T

KNOW WHERE IT'S GOING TO COME

FROM HERE.

MICK, IT'S ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO

SEE YOU.

I THINK THE WORLD OF YOU.

I HAVE SUCH GREAT RESPECT FOR

WHAT YOU DO.

KEEP WRITING AND DOING ALL THE

THINGS DO YOU.

IT'S ON THE BOOKSHELVES NOW.
