The pro wrestling world has many figures who hold a special place in the industry. However, not many have the prominence or the importance that Hulk Hogan has! With Vince McMahon behind the scenes, pulling strings, Hogan transcended wrestling and became one of the most recognizable faces on the face of the planet.
However, age and the damage suffered throughout his career have caught up with him. Although the fans saw him recently at Raw XXX, he is not the same force that he was in his prime. At the age of 69, Hogan is now reduced to an occasional celebrity cameo role. After a ton of injuries during his career and many surgeries later, Hogan has recently shared a disheartening update about his health.

Former WWE champ and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle was present during the RAW XXX episode. During a recent episode of his “The Kurt Angle Show,” the beloved wrestler revealed a part of the conversation he had with the veteran wrestler. Apparently, Hogan can not feel anything in his lower body. Hogan “had the nerves cut from his lower body.” So it is definitely sad to see the legend suffering in his old age.
WWE universe sends Hulk Hogan well wishes amid health concerns
Hulk Hogan is a polarizing figure in the world of pro wrestling. While he is one of the key figures behind the boom that gave wrestling mainstream attention, he has also been a part of some massive controversies over the years as well. He caught a lot of flack from the WWE roster for using a racial slur a few years ago.
But it appears that the controversies have died down and he is once again welcomed back by the wrestling community. Hence, there are a lot of sympathetic reactions to the latest disclosure about his health. Kurt Angle revealed that Hogan has to use a cane to move around. So it had obviously compromised his quality of life.
