Seeing him walking around with a cane, the people assumed that his back hurt from the surgery but it isn’t the case so. His dear friend Kurt Angle recently revealed on The Kurt Angle Podcast, the reality of the situation.
“He had the nerves cut from his lower body. He can’t feel his lower body. I thought he was using the cane because he had pain in his back. He doesn’t have any pain. He has nothing at all. He can’t feel anything. I really feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up.”
Having retired from wrestling, Hulk Hogan has been admitted into WWE’s Hall of Fame twice. The fans dearly hope for Hogan’s biopic starring Chris Hemsworth to come to fruition before Hemsworth allegedly takes a break from his acting.
