As noted earlier, I spoke with Mick Foley days after his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. During the Hall of Fame ceremony, Foley noted how he had never pinned Chris Jericho. Jericho made his way onto the stage, and Foley dropped an elbow on him as CM Punk counted three. I asked Foley if there was anything that would bring him out of retirement, or if the bit with Jericho was his last "match."
"Maybe if they had an old timer's battle royal at WrestleMania 40 [laughs]," Foley joked. "Yeah, I think that elbow is the last wrestling move that you will see me participate in."
I also asked Foley about the Rock suffering a torn abdominal muscle during his WrestleMania 29 match with John Cena, since Foley had also suffered that injury during a match in 1993. Foley noted that it was the most painful injury that he had ever suffered, and was impressed that The Rock was able to finish his match.
"I could barely move when it happened to me," Foley admitted. "I finished my match but I didn't have the pressure on me that he did to not only finish, but to have a main event match on the biggest show of the year. It's incredibly painful... I wasn't right for months, even years after that."
