Mick Foley on Life Beyond the Mat

Though he lost the match, he considers it the high point of his career: "I just felt like a classic movie cowboy riding off into the sunset," he says.

Life After Wrestling

After retiring from a 15-year career in pro wrestling, Foley cut off his long locks, hoping to alter his appearance and travel with his family incognito.

It was a tactical error, he says, as he became more recognizable than ever. And sunglasses aren't exactly an option: "They slip off the side of my head due the lack of that one ear."

Does he ever miss the thrill of life in the ring? "Actually, no," he says. "I feel the same adrenaline rush when I'm writing."

But don't expect a third volume of memoirs; Foley says he's officially out of real-life stories and is moving on to fiction. He plans to write children's books and a novel.
