The Avatar: The Last Airbender Character You Likely Didn't Know Wrestler Mick Foley Voiced

Though he still has a long way to go before he catches up with fellow professional wrestler turned actor Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley still has an undeniably impressive acting career.

Over the years, the legendary wrestler has appeared in a slew of popular television shows and movies, including "Boy Meets World," "30 Rock," and the beloved independent film "The Peanut Butter Falcon" – often playing a semi-fictionalized version of himself or one of his numerous wrestling personas. Foley also has a prolific voice acting résumé, having lent his iconic voice to over a dozen wrestling-themed video games, such as "WWE: 2K Battlegrounds," "WWE 2K20," and the "WWE SmackDown vs. RAW" series.

All told, Foley has acted across a wide variety of media in the years following his retirement from the WWE — though perhaps the funniest role on Mick Foley's acting résumé is his performance in "Avatar: The Last Airbender."

Mick Foley imitates the Rock in his role as the Boulder on Avatar: The Last Airbender

The Boulder is a professional wrestler who first appears in the Season 2 episode "The Blind Bandit," where he faces off against Toph Beifong (Michaela Jill Murphy) in an underground fighting arena. There's something incredibly funny about hearing legendary wrestler Mick Foley bicker with a 12-year-old girl, who quickly stomps him during their ensuing fight, but perhaps the funniest thing about the character is that he's actually named after Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, according to "Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Art of the Animated Series."

"The Boulder" very clearly plays on "the Rock" (which is further emphasized when Toph calls him "the Pebble"), and just like the Rock, the Boulder absurdly refers to himself in the third person while throwing out constant one-liners. Considering the fact that Foley and the Rock have been close friends ever since their time in the WWE (and indeed, used to fight together as members of the infamous Rock 'n' Sock Connection) (via FirstSportz), we have to imagine that Foley had a blast imitating his friend in "Avatar: The Last Airbender."
