Mick Foley Talks About Concussions, Donating His Brain, Tolerance For Pain

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently spoke to StarTribune.com.

Q: How many concussions do you think you’ve had?

A: Unfortunately, I had too many for me to count really.

Q: Have you been approached about donating your brain for study as many NFL players have?

A: I have been approached. These are some tough questions here. You see how quickly I did those autographs? We got through a few hundred people fairly quickly. Signing my name on that form to donate my brain took a long time. It’s a big step, but if other people can learn from what I’ve done, I’m willing to do it. I believe as long as I can continue to say the words Boston Center for Traumatic Encephalopathy that my brain is still working OK.

Q: You must have an enormous tolerance for pain, given this lore about you fighting with a separated shoulder.

A: You’ve got to make sure we talk about that in past tense. I did have a tremendous tolerance for pain. Now, not so much. Almost anything [brings me to my knees now]. I’m a guy who used to be fairly fearless. Now, please don’t tell me I have to walk down a flight of steps. [Wrestling] was tough on the body, the knee joints, the back, and so stairs are difficult.
