Hulk Hogan can’t feel his legs after back surgery gone wrong

Hulk Hogan is said to have had surgery that led to him losing feeling in his lower body.

Fellow WWE legend Kurt Angle said he spoke with Hogan “for about a half-hour” about their health and injuries backstage at Raw 30.

He said Hogan recently “had the nerves cut from his lower body” leading to mobility issues.”

The injury means that Hogan, a superstar of World Wrestling Entertainment, can walk only with the aid of a cane.

“Hogan had his back surgery again. 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,” Angle revealed in the latest episode his podcast The Kurt Angle Show at the weekend.

“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.”

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Gene Bollea, is widely regarded as the world’s most recognised wrestling star and the most popular wrestler of the 1980s. The 69-year-old is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.
