Mick Foley Remains Fatigued, Yet Optimistic After Kicking Out Of COVID-19

Mick Foley does indeed have “testicular fortitude” as the man with three legendary faces continues to recover from his recent battle against the Coronavirus.
Foley tested positive for COVID back at the turn of the year after being involved in a virtual signing and has since been on the mend. Very early this morning, a sleepless Mick provided an update as he went over some of his current ailments and reminds fans to stay safe as COVID-19 is not something you want to catch. Despite being sleep-deprived, Mick always manages to keep a positive attitude about him.
“I can’t sleep! I never slept well, but here it is, 5 AM, like 10 AM 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? You can’t think clearly, easily fatigued then perhaps worst of all, or maybe worst of all, the loss of strength is incredible. Even when I was not exercising and I forgotten and skipped doing the DDP Yoga, I was doing like close to 50 push-ups, even at advanced weight gain. Now back when I was little leaner, I could reel off 60, as I did right before the Roman Reigns/Braun Strowman Hell In A Cell match I refereed (the one I ruined by counting to three, but in my defense Roman did not raise his shoulder and I was taught to count like it was a shoot) but that’s beside the point: I was getting 60, but even with the weight gain, like over 300, I don’t know what that is in kilos or stones but it’s a lot brother, lemme tell ya something, it’s a lot. But even so, I was getting pretty strong, like 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 push-ups or press-ups is more difficult so I want to warn you, just urge you to look out for each other and believe me, you don’t want to catch this, it sucks. Look out for each other, stay safe. Very soon, we all will have nice days.”
