Hulk Hogan 'can't feel his legs anymore' after undergoing back surgery

There's been a very dramatic update about Hulk Hogan's health after he completed back surgery.

The legendary former wrestler can't feel his legs anymore after doctors cut through several nerves during the operation.

Kurt Angle revealed the shocking news during his podcast where he was reflecting on the WWE Raw 30th anniversary show.

Wrestling News says he had some one-on-one time with Hogan and it doesn't look good.


"Hogan had his back surgery again," Angle revealed on The Kurt Angle Show.

"He had the nerves cut from his lower body. He can't feel his lower body, so he has to use his cane to walk around.

"I thought he was using the cane because he has pain in his back. He doesn't have any pain. He has nothing at all.


"He can't feel anything.

"So now he can't feel his legs, so he has to walk with a cane.

"That's pretty serious, man. I mean, I really feel for Hogan.

"He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up.


“I mean, if you’re gonna kick off the show, the 30th anniversary of Raw, [it] should be Hulk Hogan. He’s the name and face of the company. He’s the guy that revolutionised pro wrestling. I have so much respect for him.”

Hogan hasn't yet publicly commented on the state of his health and LADbible has reached out to him for comment.

Back in 2020, Hogan showed off the scar that was caused by his tenth back surgery (yes, you read that right).

He says a lot of his issues stem from his wrestling career, which spanned from 1977 to 2012.


In an interview with Harvey Levin's OBJECTified, the now-69-year-old said: "I've had 17 surgeries over the last 10 years.

"My knees are fake, hips are fake, back is full of metal and part of my face is full of metal."

"I didn't get the memo about the fake wrestling."


Ric Flair left the world worried in 2021 when he said Hogan was experiencing 'really bad health issues'.

Thankfully, he gave an update the following year to say he was 'doing well'.

"I talked to him quite a bit…he’s doing well," Flair said on the To Be The Man podcast.

"He’s just bought a home and he’s got a new girl. And he’s–you know I hear different stories but as of recently, he’s in much better health than he has been.

"By that I mean I think his back is a little bit better."

Here's hoping Hogan is getting the support he needs.
