- Mick Foley recently spoke to The New Times newspaper to promote an upcoming comedy event and talked about the style he worked that led to him retiring from in-ring action:

“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.”
