WWE legend Hulk Hogan has been a household name for decades, and his iconic catchphrase “Whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild on you?” has become synonymous with professional wrestling. But now, the wrestling icon is facing a new challenge: he has nothing at all.
Kurt Angle, a fellow WWE Hall of Famer, recently revealed that Hogan has been unable to feel his legs since undergoing back surgery. Angle, who is currently the General Manager of Monday Night Raw, made the announcement during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
“Hulk Hogan is a great friend of mine,” Angle said. “He had back surgery and he can’t feel his legs. He has nothing at all.”
Hogan, who is now 64 years old, has been dealing with back issues for years. In 2013, he underwent a procedure to fuse two vertebrae in his lower back. The surgery was successful, but it left him with permanent nerve damage.
The news of Hogan’s condition has been met with an outpouring of support from fans and fellow wrestlers alike. Many have taken to social media to express their love and admiration for the wrestling legend.
“My thoughts and prayers are with Hulk Hogan,” wrote one fan on Twitter. “He has been an inspiration to so many of us.”
Hogan has yet to comment on his condition, but he has been active on social media in recent weeks. He has posted several photos of himself with his family, and he has also been promoting his new podcast, “Hulk Hogan’s Hulkamania Radio.”
Hogan’s condition is a reminder of the physical toll that professional wrestling can take on its athletes. While Hogan’s career was filled with memorable moments, it is clear that his health has taken a toll.
It is unclear if Hogan will ever be able to return to the ring, but one thing is certain: he will always be remembered as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. His legacy will live on in the hearts of wrestling fans everywhere.
