The Hall of Famer revealed earlier this month he had contracted the respiratory illness, and he has now provided a health update for his fans on social media.
Taking to Twitter, he began: ‘Hello everybody, this is the hardcore legend Mick Foley with a multi-purpose coronavirus health update. First of all, I wanted to tell you how I’m doing physically. 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 anybody to complain to, so I’m gonna complain to all of you.’
The 55-year-old retired wrestler – who previously opened up on the lasting financial and physical impact of his and Undertaker’s iconic 1998 Hell in a Cell match – revealed he is still dealing with some issues stemming from the coronavirus.
‘I can’t sleep! I never slept well, but here it’s 5am, 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,’ he added.
‘Brain fog, right? I can’t think clearly. I’m easily fatigued and perhaps worst of all – or maybe worst of all – the loss of strength is incredible. Even when I was not exercising and I’d 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, 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 defence Roman did not raise his should 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 – I don’t know what that is in kilos and stones, but it’s a lot, brother. Let me tell you something, it’s a lot.’
However, Foley’s health has taken a turn and he’s now struggling to even get to double figures at the moment.
‘But even so, I was getting pretty strong, closing in on 50,’ he reflected on his pre-Covid efforts. ‘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 wanna warn you, urge you, to look out for each other. 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. Yeah!’
