Mick Foley Outlines What He Must Do To Have One Final Match

Mick Foley

Mick Foley has revealed the major obstacle that he must overcome before setting foot into the squared circle for one final time.

The 58 year-old former WWE Champion has not competed since a surprise entrance in the 2012 Royal Rumble match but recently declared his desire to participate in one rather brutal final bout.

Foley is targeting a 60th birthday match in June 2025 as his swan song and has already listed Matt Cardona and Jon Moxley as potential opponents.

The Long Island native has also stated his wish to say goodbye in a gory death match that would almost certainly rule out the WWE Hall Of Famer’s last showdown taking place on a WWE card.

During a recent ‘Sign-It-Live’ event with Highspots, Foley opened up about the major thing that needed to happen before he could seriously consider another in-ring outing:

“I’d have to lose an extraordinary amount of weight and it’s not falling off like I hoped it would. So I’m gonna have to re-examine where I am at a certain point.

It’s not about the money. I wanna have a fun match but I am having trouble. I’ve been working out, I feel better, moving better but it’s not showing up as of yet on the scale. So I’m not sure.”

‘The Hardcore Legend’ noted his desire to continue to work towards ring shape and has set himself a timeline to make a decision on the potential farewell match:

“I’ll have an answer by the beginning of the year… There’s a lot of different options (opponent-wise) to do such a thing.”

Mick Foley Reacts To WrestleMania Snub

With Foley’s final match not likely to take place at WrestleMania, his appearance in the main event of WrestleMania 2000 will remain as his solitary headlining berth in the WWE’s top Premium Live Event.

That appearance could have come a year sooner, however, with Foley recently offering his reaction to being removed from WrestleMania 15 main event plans.
