"I had a style that had consequences on the body" - Mick Foley

Mick Foley

In a recent interview, WWE Hall of Famer and Hardcore legend Mick Foley talks about his style wrestling, its consequences, his retirement from the WWE and more.

“There’s only so much punishment a human body can take. A lot of it wasn’t necessarily hard-core matches… It was just a very physically demanding style.

“My knees became arthritic very early because of that punishing style. It would be like likening a running back who takes the hit to the running back who plays it safe and goes out of bounds at almost every occasion.

“It’s not because of the type of matches I was in or the stipulations that surrounded them; it’s because I had a style that I chose at a young age that had consequences.”
