Earlier in the month, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley revealed to the world that he tested positive for COVID-19 late last year. Since then he has been self-quarantining himself.

Now the Hardcore Legend has given another update on his condition after over ten days. Foley has been candid about his condition after testing positive for the virus and how it has affected him.

In a recent video he uploaded on Twitter, Mick Foley urged his almost 2 million fans to follow social distancing norms and encouraged people to look out for one another.

“First of all, I wanted to tell you how I’m doing physically, and second of all, I wanna encourage everybody to continue to look out for each other. I know there’s an end in sight but we have to be even more adamant. Continue to mask up, social distance and look out for each other. And number three, I just feel like complaining. I don’t have anyone to complain to! So I’m gonna complain to all of you”

Foley then shared more details on how he is feeling presently. Foley added that he isn’t able to sleep despite it being 5 AM in the morning. Foley then said that he has a lot of fatigue and has lost strength.

“First of all, here are my symptoms; I can’t sleep! I never slept well, but here it is, 5am… The Hardcore Legend is wide awake, complaining. If misery loves company, brother, you have got some company in The Hardcore Legend. The brain fog, right? You feel like you can’t think clearly, you’re easily fatigued, and perhaps worst of all – the loss of strength.”

Foley then revealed just how much the virus has impacted his physical abilities.

“Even when I was not excersing, and I had forgotten and skipped doing the DDP Yoga, I was doing like close to 50 push-ups. Even at advanced weight gain”

Foley ended it by encouraging everyone to say safe during the COVID-19 pandemic era.

“But even with the weight gain… I was getting pretty strong, closing in on 50, and boom, coronavirus hit, and now I’m at 12, 13. And you know how press-ups become increasingly more difficult? Well every one of these push-ups or press-ups is more difficult! So I wanna warn you, or urge you to look out for each other, and believe me, you don’t wanna catch this, it sucks”

Our thoughts go out to anyone dealing with a difficult situation due to COVID-19 and we also hope that Mick Foley makes a full recovery.
