Mick Foley wants one more match as a way to lose some weight and create one more lasting memory for wrestling fans.
During his legendary career as a pro wrestler, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was one of the most beloved superstars ever. Fans to this day still celebrate Foley’s career accomplishments whether it was getting thrown off Hell in a Cell or winning his first World Title 25 years ago.
Whether he was wrestling as Cactus Jack, Mankind (his first persona in WWE in 1996), Dude Love or using his real name of Mick Foley, every time he went out there, fans knew that Foley would give it his all.
Unfortunately for Foley, he retired for the first time in early 2000 at the age of 34 due to how much he beat up his body. Foley would go on to wrestle on a part-time basis for WWE and TNA over the next decade plus as well.
On the final episode of his Foley Is Pod podcast with Conrad Thompson, Mick revealed that he has thoughts of wrestling one more time. Foley will turn 59 years old in June and has aspirations to wrestle one more match for when he turns 60 in 2025.
“Sixty is right around the corner. I’m thinking of doing one final match for my 60th birthday. Death Match. I think it’d be a great incentive to drop those 100 big ones (pounds) and I think it might be fun.”
Does Mick Foley Want His Final Match To Be In WWE?
While discussing plans for a final match even further, Mick Foley made it clear that he didn’t want his final match – a Death Match – to be in WWE.
“No. No, because I think it would be a pretty gory spectacle. I’m just thinking about it. I put it out there to two of my kids and they were like, ‘Would you get hurt?’ ‘Yea, probably.’ I wouldn’t have to get my brain rattled. I’m not adverse to getting a few sticheroonies here and there.”
“I mean, it won’t be for everyone, and rightfully like, ‘That’s not good for you.’ It could help me lose 100 pounds. That’s what I’m missing. I did drop the hundred, but I had the WrestleMania thing. I was already down 50. I had Vince in my ear where I made the promise to him that I would be down 80, but I don’t have any type of incentive, so it’s something I’m throwing out there. This time next year, we might have to revisit that option.”
As for who he would want to face in that final Death Match, Foley has two talented veteran wrestlers in mind.
“(Jon) Moxley or Matt Cardona. I think Moxley would be the easiest, but Matt has that heat in the death match world that could really make it something cool.”
For now, nothing has been announced, but perhaps there will be an announcement in 2025 when Foley turns 60 years old.
