WWE News: Mick Foley undergoes hip surgery
Just like in the past, Mick Foley overcomes yet another obstacle in his path. We wish him a speedy recovery.
What’s the story?
Mick Foley has finally undergone a successful hip surgery. The hardcore legend took to Twitter to send out an update regarding the surgery.
In case you didn’t know....
Mick Foley had announced last year that he needed a hip surgery. However, he joined the RAW roster as its General Manager anyway and worked Monday Nights since the brand split.
The heart of the matter
It was reported numerous times that the Hardcore legend was in immense pain while on the road and wanted to take a break from the infamously hectic schedule of the company. As a result, he was involved in a rebellious angle with the Commissioner of Monday Night Raw, Stephanie McMahon and her husband Triple H.
Mick was "fired" on-screen and hence was written off from WWE TV for the foreseeable future so that he could have a surgery. Foley was replaced by Kurt Angle on the post-Wrestlemania RAW.
Mick Foley posted the following photo in a tweet and provided an update on his surgery:
Thanks for all the well-wishes, kind words and prayers for my hip surgery. Spirits are high after a visit from Buddy the Elf in recovery! pic.twitter.com/xHeiUZs5Th— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) April 20, 2017
He was visited by his daughter, Noelle, who is dressed as “Buddy” The Elf in the picture.
Ringsidenews.com reports that Foley’s deal with the WWE wasn’t a contract and was purely verbal. Hence, we won’t be seeing the former General Manager of the red brand on the WWE TV anytime soon.
Foley is one of the most celebrated wrestlers of all time. He had an immensely high threshold for pain, thanks to which we have innumerable moments to mark out to. However, that risk-filled style of wrestling has cost Foley a number of injuries throughout his career, including this one.
We at Sportskeeda wish Mick Foley a speedy recovery and wish to see him back on WWE TV in the future.
A number WWE and independent Superstars, as well as other wrestling personalities, tweeted their best wishes to the Hardcore Legend:
