In the podcast, Anderson addressed questions about how Foley appears to be coping with his injuries, explaining, "You say, 'How is he not hurt and injured?' He is. You don't see it, and he doesn't let you see it. I don't think he would be offended if I let the cat out of the bag.

Anderson discussed how Foley's injuries stem from years of putting his body through immense physical strain to entertain wrestling fans.
He expressed his admiration and gratitude for Foley's dedication and sacrifices, saying, "He has volunteered his well-being and health for the entertainment of wrestling fans. And you have to appreciate that, respect it, and say God bless you, Mick.
Thank you." Mick Foley is known for taking some of the most brutal and dangerous bumps in the history of professional wrestling. One of the most unforgettable moments in his career was being thrown from the top of a Hell in a Cell by the Undertaker at the 1998 King of the Ring event.
This difficult stunt and countless others have undoubtedly affected Foley's body. Foley continues to be involved in the wrestling industry despite his physical struggles.

However, Balor was unsuccessful, as the R-Rated Superstar emerged victorious at the Showcase of the Immortals. Foley's dedication to the sport and willingness to endure pain for entertainment have earned him the admiration and respect of fans and fellow wrestlers.
His lasting impact on the wrestling world is undeniable, but the revelations about his ongoing health struggles underscore the potential dangers of professional wrestling.

The wrestling community will continue to support Foley and appreciate his contributions to the sport while keeping his health and well-being in mind.
