10 Most Radical Body Transformations In Wrestling

10. Mick Foley


Even during his days as an active wrestler, Mick Foley was never famous for his physique or his athleticism - back in his WCW days, when he was in his 20s, he once said, "I can't jump high, so I jump from high places." For all his skill, his body probably kept him from joining WWE sooner, and when he finally became WWE Champion, it was only because of a groundswell of fan support.

Still, all the punishment that Mick Foley received in his active days took a toll after he retired, aged, and put on weight. In 2015, Foley had reached a lifetime high of 335 pounds, and he was determined to make a change.

Using a personal trainer, DDP Yoga, and major dietary alterations, Foley began losing weight, and by the time he made a special appearance at WrestleMania 32, he had lost more than 50 pounds. Still, he wasn't done - with his new job as Raw general manager, fans got to see him become slimmer and slimmer each week. By December, he announced that he had reached 235, losing a total of 100 pounds.

Though Foley still needs hip surgery, he's undoubtedly much healthier than he was before the weight loss.
