• Hulk Hogan Opens Up About Almost Dying During Stem Cell Treatment

During a recent appearance on the Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan talked about almost dying while getting a stem cell treatment.

Below is what Hogan said:

“They almost lost me on the table. As soon as they put the needle in my arm, my eyes rolled back. It felt like 25 elephants sitting on me. Thank God, my wife was there because nobody spoke English, but she read my eyes. I was desperate and they got the paddles out. All the numbers went crazy and they were getting ready to hit me with the paddles when I was going under.

When they shut it off, we found out later that they had soaked the stem cells in DMSO (which is Dimethyl Sulfoxide)….and I’m allergic to DMSO.”
