• Update On Hulk Hogan’s Physical Health After 10 Back Surgeries In The Last 5 Years
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan has dealt with back issues for several years.
He has undergone 10 back surgeries in just the last 5 years. Brooke Hogan revealed that her father underwent 25 surgeries in total in the last decade.
During the latest episode of his podcast, fellow 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair gave the following update on the Hulkster:
“He is doing well. Bought another home. And he’s got a new girl. He’s, you know, I hear different stories, but as of recently, he is in much better health than he’s been.
By that, I mean that his back is a little bit better now. I don’t mean health-wise, like internal problems, but yeah, terrible, 10 (back surgeries), I think. Not one, not two or three, but 10 over the last probably 5 years.”
Kurt Angle has had his fair share of injuries over the years and he recently noted on his podcast that back injuries are worse than neck injuries.
Below is what the Olympic Gold Medalist said on his podcast:
“Ever since high school. I had some back problems in high school. But I didn’t have any as serious as up until this moment. The thing is, with my back, it was really painful.
What I want to tell you is this. Breaking my neck 5 times, it debilitates you, where you can’t do certain things, especially in your arms. Your arms go numb and sometimes you lose strength in your arms. Your back controls everything. You can’t do anything when your back is hurting.
I’ll give you an example. Randy Orton just had surgery on his back. He literally couldn’t do anything. This surgery is actually, hopefully, saving his career. But that’s how much back problems can affect you as a pro wrestler.”
