Mick Foley’s hip surgery is scheduled, plans to ‘stay fairly quiet about’ WWE

Mick Foley’s Facebook page

Former Raw General Manager Mick Foley has written a post on his Facebook page about Vince McMahon’s announcement from the latest episode of WWE’s flagship program that Kurt Angle will be the next man to hold that title.

Foley, who was “fired” by Stephanie McMahon a few weeks back, has long been in need of hip surgery, and he also reveals a date has finally been set for him to get the operation done. He also says he’ll be doing his best to not comment on wrestling and WWE, but if you’ve followed Mrs. Foley’s baby boy on social media for any period of time, you’ll probably join me in thinking you’ll believe that when you see it.


Kurt Angle is great choice for #RAW GM. He has the respect of everyone in the dressing room, can get serious when he needs to, and has an awe-inspiring ability to embrace his inner nerd. He is likely to have very good chemistry with a wide assortment of the #Raw roster - which makes for good television. I'm not sure if this is true, but there is a rumor out there that he won an Olympic gold medal with a broken freakin' neck!

I will be wishing Kurt the very best, and will always have an open ear for him if he is looking for advice or feedback. But publicly, I am going to take a page out of former US President's playbooks, and do my best to stay fairly quiet about the product. 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.

My hip surgery has been postponed a week – until April 19. I won't be able to get my final exams done until after I get back from Wales on April 10th, so we had to push the surgery back a week. Following the surgery, I have one appearance in Queens on May 13, and then nothing until July. So I should have plenty of time to rehabilitate my hip, become a better homeschooling teacher, and possibly work on another writing project as well. You can check out my schedule at

Have a nice day!

Best of luck on the surgery, Mick - really hope it leads to a less painful life for you. And jokes aside, feel free to talk wrestling whenever you want.
