Mick Foley will reportedly undergo hip replacement surgery, which is the reason for his abrupt removal from WWE TV, according to a report attributed to Dave Meltzer.
As we noted on Friday here on Wrestling News World, Foley will not appear on WWE Raw for the rest of the year. It was odd timing considering he was doing a television angle with Sami Zayn but a reporter from Pro Wrestling Sheet contacted WWE, who insisted Foley was taking routine time off for the holidays. They also clarified Foley had not been fired.
Mick is currently set to return to Raw on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017 if the surgery goes according to plan.
