Mick Foley is one of the greatest wrestling stars of all-time, a highly respected author and a philanthropist. It is only fitting that he’s becoming known to new generations as the father of his really attractive daughter. Noelle Foley is starting to gain fame for both her looks and being the daughter of a wrestling icon. WWE Network features Noelle along with Mick and the rest of the Foley family in the reality series Holy Foley.

Noelle continues to see her popularity grow on social media and at live shows. The super fan that loved wrestling has turned into an influential face that people care about. Noelle’s social media pages get a ton of support and many fans treat her like a celebrity at shows. This has led to her brand expanding with the hopes of becoming a personality in the world of wrestling somehow. We are going to look at everything related to the only daughter of the Foley family and her life. These are fifteen interesting tidbits about Noelle Foley that you may not have known.
15. She Has Already Appeared On WWE Raw
Noelle Foley has aspirations to become a professional wrestler for the WWE, but she’s already made her unofficial debut. Mick Foley appeared on an episode of Raw in 2015 playing Santa Claus for a WWE Shop segment. One of Mick’s passions is dressing up as Santa Claus during the holiday season and he was allowed to show it off on Raw.
Mick didn’t come alone as Noelle and one of the younger Foley boys dressed in festive outfits to spread the Christmas spirit with their dad. Noelle made a lot of new fans after her first appearance on WWE television. Many viewers searched to find out who this extremely attractive blonde girl with Mick Foley was before realizing it was his daughter, Noelle. It remains to be seen if we’ll ever see Noelle wrestle a match on WWE television, but her true debut moment will always be the one with her dad dressed as Santa Claus.
14. Mick’s Christmas Love Inspired Her Name
As mentioned before, Mick Foley absolutely loves Christmas. The positive energy and festive spirit makes Foley a happy man and it has transferred over to his children. It would only be fitting that Mick went all the way with his appreciation of Christmas by finding a name like Noelle to tie his daughter to his holiday spirit.
Not only does Mick have his own Christmas room in the Foley household and dress up as Santa Claus in his spare time, but his daughter’s name will always spark a reminder of his happiness. The hardcore legend has to be ecstatic his daughter made her WWE debut with him in a Christmas related segment given how much the theme has played into their lives. WWE will likely allow Noelle to keep her real name if she ever makes it to the main roster, only adding to Mick’s joy.
13. Cult Internet Celebrity
Mini rant time! I think this is my first Instagram rant ever 🙀 Recently I've been getting a lot of negative comments about how much makeup I wear! NEWSFLASH: Girls do makeup because it's fun! We don't need it, but we like it! It's a hobby! Getting the newest eyeshadow palette or the brightest highlighter is a thrill! You bet your butt I don't wear makeup to go to the gym or the local cvs or to go grocery shopping, but when you're going out or doing something fun, I'm going to use the heck out of my new birthday/Christmas makeup and beat my face, gurl (makeup term, not sexual) 😂 Next time you're about to comment on a girl (or boys) picture and say they wear too much makeup, stop and think that it's their hobby and they do it because it's enjoyable! But for those of you who like my makeup and always comment nice things, I appreciate you!! Thank you ❤️ #Makeup
Noelle Foley has become an internet celebrity in recent years, as more people continue to discover her. The second generation Foley has over a half million followers on Instagram and 150,000 followers on Twitter. People want to get access to Noelle’s commentary on wrestling and, of course, the jaw-dropping pictures she posts quite frequently.

Social media has become increasingly important for those hoping to become a public figure. Noelle constantly growing her numbers on the web has led to her building a legitimate fan base and helping her career aspirations take off. Mick Foley still has stronger social media numbers than Noelle, but Noelle’s fans definitely appear to be more vocal about their fandom towards her.
12. Attends More Wrestling Shows Than The Average Superfan
Noelle Foley truly does love the wrestling business and shows it by traveling to many shows each year. Living in Long Island, Noelle typically attends every WWE show in the tri-state area. Noelle also frequents shows in Chicago with her boyfriend and tries to make it to all of the bigger WWE shows in different states that require more traveling. She has even been spotted at lower tier independent shows to get more of the live experience.
As her celebrity grows, Noelle has started to become a public figure at shows. Wrestling fans request pictures and autographs from her. That has to be an awkward transition going from attending shows like anyone else to actually being viewed as someone of note. Mick Foley returning to WWE as the Raw General Manager just gives Noelle another excuse to continue attending as many WWE show as possible.
11. Loving Sister
Mick Foley has three sons, but Noelle is the only daughter of the Foley family. Noelle has close relationships with all three of her brothers. Dewey Foley is currently a writing assistant on the WWE writing team. Noelle’s aspiration to eventually become a WWE wrestler has set up the dream of them working together one day in the future. The Holy Foley show revealed the two are close, as they’re in the same age range compared to their younger brothers.
Noelle is eight and ten years older respectively to her other brothers, Mickey and Hughie. As the older sister, Noelle is responsible for her younger brothers at wrestling shows and is often seen making sure they are taken care of. The Foley family not only all love wrestling, but they definitely take care of each other. Noelle wins sister points for keeping a close relationship with all of her siblings.
10. Dolph Ziggler Hit On Her Before She Turned 18
A good looking young woman in a wrestling environment is usually a recipe for disaster. Luckily, having one of the toughest wrestlers of all-time as your father will help keep the creeps away. Noelle Foley still has dealt with wrestlers hitting on her. Mick Foley revealed he specifically had to shut down one wrestler that tried flirting with her when she was still a teenager.
A surprise to no one, Dolph Ziggler was the wrestler in question. Ziggler is known to be a womanizer and tried to strike up a relationship with Noelle before realizing she was still a teenager. Noelle admitted that the only wrestler she had a crush on was Randy Orton. This wasn’t the first or last time Ziggler lost out to Orton.
9. Interviews Wrestlers
One of the wrestling related jobs Noelle Foley has come by is interviewing wrestlers for a YouTube channel. The Ringside Collectibles brand hired Noelle to appear at conventions or events that are primarily about action figure releases. Noelle shows up to the events and interviews any stars she may encounter. Some of the bigger stars interviewed by Noelle have been Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins and Kevin Nash.
It was her first official wrestling job as she has attempted to raise her profile as a personality. Her connection to the WWE obviously gives her an in to work for the company. If Noelle doesn’t make it as a wrestler, the possibility of a broadcasting career is always out there. This experience coming at a young age is very valuable.
8. Modeling Career
Another possible career option for Noelle Foley is becoming a model. Noelle takes professional photo shoots to create a portfolio for any potential modeling opportunities that come her way. Mick’s wife and Noelle’s mother, Collette, was a model and hoped Noelle would follow her career choice, which she initially started to pursue. Naturally, Noelle chose wrestling over modeling due to having a genuine passion for it.
Noelle is intelligent enough to keep her options open. The pictures of Noelle creating a stir online and growing her fan base make it clear that she would do well in the modeling world. Noelle may have more potential in the modeling world with her social media following than in the wrestling business that requires a lot of things going right. An interview revealed Noelle saying she would consider modeling for Playboy for those hoping for the impossible becoming reality.
7. Gets More Fans At Wrestling Conventions Than Actual Wrestlers
Wrestling conventions have started to reach out to Noelle Foley, bringing her in to take pictures and sign autographs. The attention and popularity of Noelle has led to people wanting to see her. Many reports suggest Noelle typically gets a huge crowd of fans wanting to show support and chat with her. Mick Foley often joins his daughter in doing a combination appearance that has fans getting pictures or autographs from both of them.
Many of the shows feature Noelle drawing bigger lines than the wrestlers there. Mick revealed it has annoyed some wrestlers, but in a playful way. It has to hurt on some level to witness another wrestler’s daughter become more famous than you. Noelle gets booked for a reason and it is because the fans want her there. Sadly, the other forgotten wrestlers look bad by comparison.
6. Struggling At Wrestling Training
Noelle Foley’s love of wrestling has culminated in her looking to follow her father’s path by training to become an actual wrestler. The road for Noelle is an uphill battle. Despite her last name giving her opportunities, Noelle lacks a lot of the natural athletic ability and charisma to excel at wrestling. The training has not gone well, as seen on Holy Foley.
Noelle has reportedly struggled to improve and that is a bad sign for someone trying to make it to the WWE’s Performance Center. There have been rumors that Noelle has given up on the in-ring wrestling dream, but she has not confirmed that. Noelle will remain involved in wrestling in some form. The struggles in training this early usually weeds out those who can and can’t become actual wrestlers.
5. Was Shown Crying As A Child In Beyond the Mat
One of the earliest stints of Noelle Foley’s life on camera came at an unfortunate moment. The documentary film Beyond the Mat followed Mick Foley along with other wrestlers to get a grasp of the wrestling business. Unfortunately, the timing came at the 1999 Royal Rumble event, which featured a graphic I Quit Match between Mick and The Rock.
The match featured The Rock hitting Mick in the head eleven times with a steel chair. WWE displayed many brutal matches during the Attitude Era, but this became uncomfortable for all of us to watch. It was worse for a five year old Noelle when she started bawling her eyes out during the match. Beyond the Mat captured Noelle’s heartbreak at watching her dad getting his brains bashed in with a chair that many times. Luckily, everything worked out just fine for all involved.
4. Legit Dating Frank The Clown
The most shocking facet of Noelle Foley’s life is realizing that she’s dating a wrestling fan that travels to many WWE shows to sit in television view and dress as a clown. Noelle is extremely attractive and has become an internet celebrity. Frank is often ridiculed by fans, wrestlers and just about anyone to witness him in the clown paint.
Their relationship is always questioned, due to the glaring differences, but it is indeed a real relationship. Noelle and Frank are together at most wrestling shows they attend. Frank has started to cool down on the clown paint. Perhaps the higher profile leading to more scrutiny, especially from Mick Foley, has led to the changes. Mick is not fond of Frank, but the relationship is somehow here to stay.
3. Friend Of Wrestlers
Many wrestling fan celebrities or relatives of wrestlers entering the business get a cold shoulder from the performers. That isn’t the case with Noelle Foley as she has shown enough respect to the business. Noelle has become friends with many current WWE wrestlers. Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch helping train her on the Holy Foley show seemed a bit convenient, but they’re actually legit friends. They all sat together for the main event at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II in 2016.
Former wrestler CM Punk even struck up a bit of a fondness for Noelle and Frank the Clown. Punk has a reputation for staying away from conversations with fans. It’s a testament to Noelle that he made her an acquaintance. There are no negative reports out about Noelle, which is very rare for someone entering the business with such a high profile.
2. Strong Relationship With Mick
Holy Foley is definitely a bit scripted at times, but some things are clearly real. The close relationship between Mick and Noelle Foley happens to be the most realistic aspect of the show. Noelle and Mick have stated they view each other as close friends in addition to the father-daughter relationship. They claim they have only had three total fights, which is a rare feat for any parent and child.
Mick is an iconic wrestler that still entertains fans today, but he wants to be viewed as a great father more than a great wrestling personality. The main motivation for many of Foley’s kind acts for others come from wanting to be a great example for his children. Noelle adores him as one of the best fathers a wrestling loving girl can have.
1. Vince McMahon Loves Her Star Potential
The idea of Holy Foley is something Vince McMahon loved. Most of the WWE Network shows go through other departments, but McMahon specifically talked to Mick about having his family featured on a reality show. A major factor for that was Vince seeing Noelle Foley as a potential star. Noelle’s look is obviously marketable, along with her history in wrestling giving her an extra in.
McMahon bringing Mick back into the WWE family started with him wanting to have a reality show involving Noelle. The support of Vince could provide a viable road for Noelle to get into the WWE. If she can progress in her wrestling training, she will have the most valuable backer in her corner. Noelle already has figured out the most difficult task in all of wrestling – getting Vince McMahon to like her.
