Mick Foley explains why he is calling off plans to wrestle one more time in a “death match”

As previously noted, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley expressed interest in doing one more “death match” to celebrate his 60th birthday.

In a video published to his YouTube channel, Foley explained why he is calling off plans

“As some of you know, I had to miss a couple weekends of appearances because of dizziness and lightheadedness. After consulting 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 I 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 of, then some of the things that I was thinking of doing and 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.” (quotes courtesy of F4WOnline.com)
