WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley wrote the following on Facebook this week about why he’s taking a break from social media:


I’m going to be taking a break from Facebook for a while – probably until after the Royal Rumble. Some of you are aware of the headaches I get from looking at computer screens for more than a few minutes. After making the decision to home-school my two younger children, I have to make the most of the time I do spend in front of a computer screen – and right now, that time can best be spent doing my best to educate my kids. Besides, the less time I spend online, the less chance I have of writing things that I’ll regret.

I’ll catch up with you in a few weeks. In the meantime, I’ll be watching (and usually enjoying) WWE Monday Night Raw, and ?#‎NXT?, catching up with my friends in Impact Wrestling on their new channel ?#‎DestinationAmerica? and trying to learn more about the great independent wrestlers out there who really are the lifeblood of the wrestling business. After spending a couple hours watching Kevin Steen/Owens matches from ?#‎RingOfHonor?, and seeing the dedication on display by so many of the athletes who have graced ?#‎ROH? rings (Briscoes, Adam Cole, Davey Richards, El Generico, to name just a few) I have come to further appreciate just how fortunate I was to have had so many breaks go my way over the years.

To this day, I believe that if it weren’t for the breaks I had with Sting in WCW in 1991, and The Undertaker in 1996, wrestling, and life would have turned out far differently for me.

You can catch me on the road next week in Texas – with stops in ?#‎McAllen? ?#‎SanAntonio? ?#‎Addison? ?#‎Houston? & and ?#‎Austin?, as well as Michigan shows with ?#‎ColtCabana? in ?#‎GrandRapids? & ?#‎RoyalOak?. Sales for my ?#‎Wrestlemania? week shows in ?#‎Seattle? ?#‎Reno? ?#‎Portland? #Reno ?#‎Sacramento? ?#‎SanFrancisco? & ?#‎SanJose? have been really good – so check out for more information.

Have a nice day,

Mick Foley
