Mick Foley: I've Consulted With Doctors And Decided There Will Be No Final Match

Mick Foley has opted not to return to the ring.

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, 58, has not wrestled since the 2012 Royal Rumble match. In February 2024, Foley said that he was thinking about doing one more match, as it would be a good incentive to lose weight. In March, Foley said that he should have an answer about the match by the beginning of 2025.

In a new video on his YouTube channel, Mick Foley provided an update and revealed that he was calling off the match.

"Hey everyone, it’s Mick Foley with an update on that final match that I was thinking about having for my sixtieth birthday. As some of you know, I had to miss a couple weekends of appearances because of dizziness and lightheadedness. After consulting with a couple of doctors and also using my own experience with concussions, the symptoms…they 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 thought it would go away. So it just seems like the wisest move and one that’s strongly supported by my family is to call off that final match. If I can get concussed from something I’m not even aware, 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," Foley said.

Fightful will monitor the situation and provide more information as it becomes available.
