Date set for Mick Foley’s hip surgery
Former Raw General Manager Mick Foley wrote on Facebook that he is now
scheduled to undergo hip surgery on April 19 after it was postponed by a
week. The hardcore legend will only be doing one appearance – on May 13 in
Queens – after his surgery and will then see how it feels in July before
taking further bookings. Foley talked about needing hip surgery last year
but kept putting it off due to insurance problems and financial matters.
Foley has officially wrapped up his WWE duties and is no longer on the WWE
payroll as Kurt Angle takes over the role he occupied on television. Due
to this, Foley added that he will be taking a page out of former US
Presidents playbook and stay quiet about the WWE product on social media
moving forward. “I may occasionally point out something positive that I
see (like Neville and Mustafa Ali working their butts off last night under
less than ideal circumstances) but, in general, I will be keeping a much
lower profile on social media,” Foley added.
