WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, celebrated for his legendary career and iconic matches across wrestling promotions, has achieved numerous milestones throughout his time in the ring. However, health setbacks have become a recurring issue for him. In fact, he has recently announced the cancellation of his retirement match.

Mick Foley disclosed his contemplation of emerging from retirement for a final match on his 60th birthday. The Hall of Famer clarified that if this return were to materialize, it would be within the context of deathmatch, explicitly stating that it would have to be held outside of WWE.

In preparation for his upcoming retirement match, wrestling legend Mick Foley has committed to a significant weight loss journey, setting a goal to shed 100 pounds. He was even making good progress on his weight loss.

However, Mick Foley was recently pulled from pro wrestling events due to health concerns. In recent Instagram post, Foley revealed that he would not be proceeding with the match as planned after experiencing a concussion, which he initially did not realize he had.


“I update on that final match that I was thinking about having for my 60th birthday. As some of you know, I had to miss a couple of weekends of appearances because of dizziness and lightheadedness. After consulting a couple of doctors and also using my own experience with concussions, the symptoms seem to point to a concussion that I did not even know I received. I hadn’t done too much in the ring, but I had done a little bit. I had noticed that I was lightheaded after one of the workouts, but I thought it would go away.

So it just seems like the wisest move and one that is strongly supported by my family is to call off that final match. If I can get concussed from something I’m not even aware of then some of the things that I was thinking of doing, hoping of doing in a big match would not be smart. So with my family’s urging, and after careful thought I’ve decided there will be no final match. Thanks a lot for tuning in. And I hope you have a nice day.”

Fellow wrestler RVD expressed his desire to be Mick Foley’s final opponent, but it does not matter anymore as Mick Foley felt it was not worth having another match and fans have accepted this fact now.
