Mick Foley at a Nets' game.

Mick Foley is a wrestling legend from decades with WWE, ECW, WCW and other promotions, but someone thought he was famous for a very different reason Tuesday. This came thanks to Foley attending the Brooklyn Nets’ home game against the Chicago Bulls at the Barclays Center. There, a fan thought he recognized Foley…as the father of Bulls’ center Robin Lopez?


Yeah, that’s not quite right. Foley had fun with it, though:


And Lopez had a great response:

Foley and his wife have three sons and a daughter, but Lopez is not one of those. Fortunately, others did actually recognize Foley for who he is:

This has been quite the week for Foley, as Sheffield United’s Billy Sharp decided to celebrate a goal with Foley’s famed “Mr. Socko” puppet and the “Mandible Claw” move Saturday. So there are plenty of people who still know who he is. Just not everyone at Nets’ games.
