WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has taken to social media to provide an update on his health and his recovery from COVID-19.
Earlier this month, Foley announced that he’d tested positive in December and had to quarantine through Christmas and New Year.
In a new video posted to Twitter, he said:
“Hello everybody, this is the ‘Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley with a multi-purpose coronavirus health update. First of all I want to tell you how I’m doing physically, and second of all, I want to encourage everybody to continue to look out for each other. I know there’s an end in sight, but we have to be even more adamant. Continue to mask up, social distance, and look out for each other. And number three, I just feel like complaining. I don’t have anyone to complain to, so I’m going to complain to all of you.
“First of all, here are my symptoms. I can’t sleep, I never slept well, but here it is 5am, like 10am in the UK and other parts of Europe, the ‘Hardcore Legend’ is wide awake complaining. If misery loves company, brother you have got some company in the ‘Hardcore Legend’. Brain fog, right, like you can’t think clearly, easily fatigured, and maybe worst of all, the loss of strength is incredible. Even when I was not exercising and had forgotten and skipped doing the DDP Yoga, I was doing close to 50 push-ups, even at advanced weight gain back when I was a little leaner. Like I could reel of 60, as I did right before the Roman Reigns/Braun Strowman Hell in a Cell I refereed – the one I ruined by counting to threee, but in my defence Roman did not raise his shoulder and I was taught to count like it was a shoot. But that’s besides the point.
“I was getting 60, but even with the weight gain, over 300 (pounds), I don’t know what that is in kilos or stones, but it’s a lot brother, let me tell you something, it’s a lot. But even so, I was getting pretty strong, closing in on 50. Boom. Coronavirus hits, and now I’m at 12, 13. And you know how press-ups usually become increasingly more difficult? Well every one of these press-ups or push-ups is more difficult.
“So I wanna warn you, just urge you, to look out for each other, and believe me you don’t wanna catch this, it sucks. Look out for each other, stay safe, very soon we all will have nice days.”
