Planning something does not remove basic physics from the equation. Foley still fell a legit twenty or so feet and had only an announce table and some thin padding to break his fall.
This is before mentioning the separated shoulder, bruised kidney, missing teeth and so on that he suffered during that match.
And how Vince himself told Mick to never again do anything like it.
