Mick Foley 100% Supporting Kane For Mayor Even Though He's a Republican

3/22/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Mick Foley says he so believes in his old WWE partner Kane's Mayoral run, that he's willing to stump for the guy personally, even though they're from two different parties.

Kane (real name Glenn Jacobs) is running for mayor in Knox County, Tennessee ... and he's getting a big help from his old running buddy, Mick -- who told TMZ Sports why Jacobs is the man for the job.

"One of the wisest, best read, most well-read, compassionate people I've ever met."

Foley says he feels like public service is Glenn's true calling ... which is why Mick is campaigning for Kane at an event in Tennessee -- despite him being a democrat, and the Big Red Machine being a republican.

"He's a republican, and I'm not, and that doesn't really matter. He's an honorable man and a great person, and he wouldn't be doing this if he didn't think he could do a great job for the people of Knox County."

We also talked to the WWE HOF'er about the wrestling bombshell of the week -- Daniel Bryan's return to the squared circle.

Odell Beckham Jr. Shoot-Danced Like A Wildman ... at Teammate's Wedding!

3/21/2018 11:56 AM PDT

Odell Beckham Jr. made one hell of an entrance at the Sterling Shepard-Chanel Iman wedding reception, doing what he does best -- DANCING HIS ASS OFF.

OBJ and Shepard's other groomsmen tore through the wedding hall with Rich the Kid's "New Freezer" bumpin' ... and broke out the shoot dance to end all shoot dances -- fist-pumpin' and leg-kickin' with extra sauce for Sterling's big day!!

Giants WR Roger Lewis and Miami WR Kenny Stills (Shep's OU teammate) weren't half bad -- but we gotta give Odell the nod for performance of the night ... only 'cause Eli wasn't around to steal the show.

In the video, the emcee said the party was just getting started ... so we can only imagine how turnt OBJ and co. got by night's end.

Congrats, Sterling and Chanel!

Mark Wahlberg & Gronk Garden Gun Show!! ... at Miami Restaurant

3/21/2018 9:13 AM PDT

Rob Gronkowski and Mark Wahlberg officially went GANG GREEN on Tuesday ... but don't freak, Pats fans -- we ain't taking about the Jets. 

Marky Mark and the NFL superstar hit up David Grutman's new plant-based restaurant Planta in Miami for a completely green meal ... and even hand-picked their own herbs from the rooftop garden.

FYI -- the camera crew is filming for Mark's reality show, Wahlburgers.

Of course, the 2 health freaks used it as an opportunity to show off their guns. (Who says ya need meat to be ripped?)

The bros that garden together ... 

WWE's Hillbilly Jim I'd Love for Hulk Hogan to Induct Me ... Into WWE Hall of Fame

3/18/2018 12:35 AM PDT

WWE Hall of Fame inductee Hillbilly Jim says he'd be PUMPED if his old mentor, Hulk Hogan, enshrined him into the Hall ... since he owes his career to the Hulkster. 

"When I first came into the business, to get brushed up against the guy that was the most popular wrestler on earth ... it was wonderful what he did for me," Jim told TMZ Sports

Hillbilly was just announced as part of WWE's 2018 HOF class ... and he told us the news was so shocking, it damn near knocked him on his ass.

HBJ says the only thing cooler than joining all his wrestling buds in the Hall would be Hulk himself doing the honors at WrestleMania 34 weekend in April.

Only problem -- the WWE recently restated it won't work with Hulk 'cause of his 2015 N-word fiasco. Hogan, for his part, recently told us they're working toward a resolution.

Stay tuned ... 

Kurt Warner I'm Praying for Jim Kelly ... He'll Beat This Thing!

3/2/2018 3:20 PM PST

Jim Kelly asked for prayers -- and Kurt Warner answered the call. 

The Hall of Famer tells TMZ Sports he's friends with Jim and was devastated when he heard Kelly's oral cancer had returned. 

"He's a godly man," Warner said ... "He's gonna find a way through this so I'm gonna continue to pray for him."

Kurt says he's already been in touch with the Kelly family to offer a personal message -- but encourages Jim's fans to keep up the prayers because he truly believes it helps. 

Jim and his wife Jill opened up about the cancer battle earlier this week. It's Jim's 3rd bout with oral cancer but this time, he says the treatment will require a major surgery that will essentially require doctors to reconstruct his upper jaw. 

Jim says he was shocked and saddened when he was diagnosed, but tells his fans, "God is with me."

UFC's Khabib Nurmagomedov Dishes on Meeting Cristiano Ronaldo He LOVES the UFC (and Me)

2/18/2018 12:55 AM PST

How big of an MMA fan is Cristiano Ronaldo?  

So massive, that Real Madrid brought UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov to meet him in Spain so the 2 could bro down ... this according to Khabib himself.

"He know everything about the UFC," Nurmagomedov told TMZ Sports outside Jay Glazer's Unbreakable Performance Center in Hollywood.

FYI, the meet-up went down at Real's training center in Madrid ... where the two Euro-sport mega-stars talked fighting and exchanged gifts (Khabib got a signed ball and jersey). 

If this feels familiar, it's probably 'cause Conor McGregor -- Khabib's arch-nemesis -- also kicked it with Cristiano. Ronaldo visited Conor before his first Nate Diaz fight ... facing off with McGregor at his private gym in Vegas.

No way of knowing which fighter Cristiano likes more -- Ali and Khabib claim it's Khabib, of course -- but Ronaldo did look pretty pumped wearing Khabib's signature papakha hat.  

'Martin' Star Carl Anthony Payne Down for Reboot Already Talking Netflix!!!

2/11/2018 12:50 AM PST

Carl Anthony Payne says the "Martin" show transcends time ... and since he's all in for the show making a comeback, there's no better place than Netflix.

We got Martin Lawrence's pal leaving Mastro's on Thursday night and asked him, first and foremost, if the reboot's gonna happen. Carl dances around the question for a bit before we ask him if he'd be into it. Carl says NO. QUESTION. ABOUT. IT.

He says Martin 2.0 is long overdue and even makes a strong pitch for Netflix to pick up the show. TMZ broke the story ... the "Martin" cast reunited at Morton's ... fueling speculation a reboot's in the works.

Gronk's BFF Teases WWE Future for Rob ... Amid Retirement Rumors

2/11/2018 12:25 AM PST

If Rob Gronkowski retires from football ... could he have a 2nd career in the WWE ring?!

That's what Gronk's best buddy, WWE superstar Mojo Rawley, hinted at before the Super Bowl ... just 1 day before Rob shocked the NFL universe by saying he might not be back in 2018.

"It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of WHEN," Mojo told TMZ Sports, before adding, "I can't speak for him."

Hard to think Gronk -- injury (and concussion) history aside -- would call it quits at age 28 ... especially to get body-slammed in the ring.

That said ... you can't deny he's got the look.

Victoria Beckham She's Joining Spice Girls for Money, Self-Esteem

2/8/2018 1:00 AM PST

Victoria Beckham went from wanting nothing to do with a Spice Girls reunion to being fully on board ... largely because she wants to step out of David Beckham's shadow and do her own thing again ... sources connected to the group tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... the Spice Girls will reunite for a concert tour -- probably towards the end of summer -- that will begin in England and migrate over to the U.S. of A.

We're told Victoria and David Beckham often do their own thing, and she's bored with being on the sidelines. Our sources say Victoria wants to "individualize herself" ... and ironically she's doing that by rejoining her group, or as she's put it, "her girls."

We're told one of the allures is money. Our sources say the girls won't get paid equally, and it's pretty clear Victoria can demand more than the others. That said, as one source put it, "They are worth more as a group than they are individually, so this is a great venture for all of them."

Oprah Quincy Jones is My Hero ... But I Gotta Read That Interview!!!

2/7/2018 4:52 PM PST

Oprah's staying mum on that shocking Quincy Jones interview making the rounds today -- partly because she hasn't read it yet ... but mostly because they go way back.

We got O leaving the Apollo Theater in Harlem Wednesday and asked her for her thoughts on some of the bold claims made by Jones in his convo with Vulture ... like how he used to date Ivanka Trump.

Oprah's got no comment, other than to praise Quincy because he discovered her for her breakout role in "The Color Purple" ... which he produced. She tells us he's a close friend, and no matter how crazy that interview is ... she ain't talking.

But seriously, Oprah ... you gotta read it.

Rapper NBA YoungBoy Young Thug Hangs With Me Forever It Only Cost Me $150k!!!

2/3/2018 12:01 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Rapper NBA YoungBoy's setting the bar high when it comes to friendship and loyalty ... immortalizing Young Thug with this SICK pendant.

We're told YoungBoy reached out to Joe the Jeweler, aka "Shyne," in Philly and requested the custom pendant ... encrusted with 95 carat VVS diamonds worth around $150k. Shyne needed about 2 months to complete the masterpiece, which btw is a replica of an actual YT pic.

So why Young Thug? YoungBoy considers him a great friend and an idol. It's that simple. 

Here's hoping he doesn't need to have JoJo Capone on standby.

'Martin' Cast Reunites!!! Wazzup with Martin, Gina & Pamela?!

2/1/2018 9:08 PM PST

The cast of "Martin" is back together -- just for a steak lunch, for now -- but it could be for a reboot of their popular '90s sitcom very soon ... based on the smiles on their faces.

We got Martin Lawrence (aka Martin Payne), Tisha Campbell-Martin (aka Gina) and Tichina Arnold (aka Pamela) leaving Morton's Steakhouse in Burbank Thursday, so we had to ask if the rumors are true ... and it sure seems like they are.

Martin and the ladies play it coy at first, but all 3 of them can't stop dishing out the deets once they start reminiscing ... until Tisha steps in to shut it down ... twice!

It's interesting -- the show went off the air in 1997 after a serious rift between Martin and Tisha ... so many thought a reboot would never happen.

Looks like water under the bridge now, though, and as Lawrence says ... "never say never."

James Franco No Oscar Nom, No Prob!!!

1/23/2018 5:08 PM PST

James Franco's still getting by with a little help from his friends after Hollywood snubbed him for an Oscar nomination.

Franco did lunch with Jeff Garlin Tuesday at Joan's on Third. Based on their bro hug as they left, we'd say the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and 'Goldbergs' star was supporting James ... hours after he, shockingly, did NOT get an Oscar nomination.

We're guessing the sexual assault allegations against Franco also came up over the meal, since it's pretty clear that's what swayed Motion Picture Academy voters.

A friend in need ...
