WWF Legend Mick Foley has long been celebrated for his illustrious career and unforgettable matches that have left an indelible mark on the industry. However, his journey has not been without its challenges, particularly when it comes to health setbacks.

The WWE Hall of Famer recently made headlines by announcing his intention to come out of retirement for one final match on his 60th birthday. Foley’s fans were thrilled at the prospect of witnessing the legend in action once again. However, he made it clear that if this comeback were to happen, it would be in the context of a deathmatch and would need to take place outside of WWE.

In anticipation of his retirement match, Foley embarked on a remarkable weight loss journey, aiming to shed an impressive 100 pounds. His dedication to fitness and well-being was evident, and he was making notable progress towards his goal.

Unfortunately, Foley’s plans took an unexpected turn when he was forced to withdraw from professional wrestling events due to health concerns. In a candid Instagram post, he revealed that he had sustained a concussion, initially unaware of the severity of his condition. This revelation dealt a blow to his aspirations of returning to the ring for one last epic showdown.

Despite fellow ECW/WWF Legend Rob Van Dam expressing interest in being Foley’s final opponent, the wrestling legend ultimately made the difficult decision to cancel his retirement match. The realization of his health condition and the risks associated with further injury led him to conclude that another match was not worth jeopardizing his well-being.

Here’s what Mick said during a video he posted on Instagram:

“An 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.”
