Mick Foley Gives Health Update After Scrapped Plans For Last Match

Mick Foley

Mick Foley had an iconic wrestling career that rightfully saw him inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame but plans for one last match had to be abandoned.

Mick Foley had plans for one final match to put a bow on his career to celebrate his 60th birthday in 2025. Foley wanted to live up to his reputation as the Hardcore Legend one last time with wild plans for a death match but those plans were forced to be scrapped after Foley suffered another concussion to go with the many he experienced during his career.

Now in a video shared on YouTube, Mick Foley has provided an update on his condition noting that he’s feeling a lot better but confirming he’s no longer trying to compete against one duo that can never be defeated:

Hello everyone, this is Mick Foley with a concussion update. You might be able to tell by the tone of my voice, it’s good news. Yeah, yeah – really good news. Even going into this weekend when I resumed my work schedule, I was a little out of it. But over the next three days, wow, really felt the fog lifting. It’s kind of like coming to the surface after you’ve been swimming underwater.

I last had one of these minor concussions six years ago after riding a rollercoaster that shook me from side to side. And now following this episode, I’ve decided that I am no longer going to be taking on the deadly duo of Father Time and Mother Nature because they commenced to kicking my butt, and it’s not a rematch I’m looking to have.

So I’m really happy, in a weird way, that I had this little wake-up call. I really appreciate all the well-wishes people sent me, people concerned about me. I’m doing really good. Always appreciate your support.

When Did Mick Foley Last Wrestle?

Mick Foley’s final one-on-one bout came during his time in TNA in 2010. Foley defeated his old rival Ric Flair in a Last Man Standing match. He then had a tag team bout on an independent show in 2011 where he teamed with Terry Funk in a loss to Cowboy Bob Orton and Roddy Piper.

The last time Foley laced up his boots in anger, however, came at the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble where he had a cameo during the 30-man match. Foley eliminated Primo, Epico, and Justin Gabriel before his night was cut short by a certain Cody Rhodes.
