Mick Foley Planning To Come Out Of Retirement For One More Deathmatch

Mick Foley wants to come out of retirement for one more match

Mick Foley has not competed in a match since all the way back at the 2012 Royal Rumble match where he was in the bout for a short cameo and didn’t put himself out too much. It has been even longer since his last singles match, which came in 2010 against Ric Flair in TNA Wrestling. 

Fourteen years after that singles match and at 58 years of age, Foley wants one more match. Foley commented on the fact that he is nearing 60 years old, and to celebrate he wants to have one last, gory death match to cap off his career. Speaking on his “Foley Is Pod” podcast, he revealed his intentions.

“Sixty is right around the corner. I’m thinking of doing one final match for my 60th birthday. Death Match. I think it'd be a great incentive to drop those 100 big ones (pounds) and I think it might be fun.”

Despite his success in WWE in the past, he did say that it wouldn’t be in WWE if it happened because he wants a bloody, extreme match.

“No. No, because I think it would be a pretty gory spectacle. I’m just thinking about it. I put it out there to two of my kids and they were like, ‘Would you get hurt?’ ‘Yea, probably.’ I wouldn’t have to get my brain rattled. I’m not adverse to getting a few sticheroonies here and there. I mean, it won’t be for everyone, and rightfully like, ‘That’s not good for you.’ It could help me lose 100 pounds. That’s what I’m missing. I did drop the hundred, but I had the WrestleMania thing. I was already down 50. I had Vince in my ear where I made the promise to him that I would be down 80, but I don’t have any type of incentive, so it’s something I’m throwing out there. This time next year, we might have to revisit that option.”

When it comes to a potential opponent, Foley singled out both Matt Cardona and Jon Moxley as the two he’d pick for one last fight.
