Mick Foley shares an early morning COVID update.
Back on New Year's Day, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19 following a virtual signing in December. On January 3rd, Foley revealed that he was no longer contagious for the virus and that he would be checking out of his hotel room after 19 days.
Taking to Twitter, Foley released a video where he talked about how the illness has affected him.
"Here are my symptoms, I can't sleep. I never slept well, but here it is 5 AM, like 10 AM in the UK and other parts of Europe, and the Hardcore Legend is wide-awake, complaining. If misery loves company, brother you have got some company in the Hardcore Legend. It's a brain fog, right? You can't think clearly, easily fatigued, and then perhaps worst of all, or maybe worst of all, the loss of strength is incredible. Even when I was not exercising and I had forgotten and skipped doing the DDP Yoga, I was doing close to 50 push-ups, even at advanced weight gain. Now back when I was a little leaner, I could reel off 60, as I did right before the Roman Reigns/Braun Strowman Hell in a Cell match I refereed. The one I ruined by counting to three, but in my defence, Roman did not raise his shoulder and I was taught to count like it was a shoot. That's beside the point. I was getting 60, even with the weight gain, like over 300. I don't know what that is in kilos or stones, but that's a lot brother... Even so, I was getting pretty strong. Close in on 50 and then boom, coronavirus hits 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 want to warn you."
