Hulk Hogan Is Back To Running Errands
Hulk Hogan is undefeatable, both in the ring and in real life. A few days back, Hulk Hogan shut down false claims made by a fellow wrestler, Kurt Angle, who shared some critical details about Hulk’s health on “The Kurt Angle Show”. He said: “Hogan had his back surgery again. He had the nerves cut from his lower body.” He claimed that Hulk was left paralysed after this surgery.
In an interview, a representative for Hogan revealed the former WWE star can walk without a cane and is “doing well and is not paralyzed.” Now, Hulk Hogan was spotted roaming around walking the street, running errands as he left the DMV in Clearwater, Fla. on Friday (Feb. 3). He even posed to paps for pictures.
Hulk was also joined by his son, Nick Hogan and was seen holding a license plate along with other DMV paperwork. The father-son duo was also captured hugging each other before driving together in a truck. On January 30, 2023, Hulk was seen having a gala time as he posted a photo of himself on Instagram at a karaoke night at his restaurant, Hogan’s Hangout, Florida.
All About Hulk’s Recovery…
Sometime back, Hulk Hogan underwent back surgery, adding to the list of his numerous surgeries over a decade. However, claims regarding Hulk’s paralysis gained momentum after fellow wrestler Kurt Angle revealed on “The Kurt Angle Show” that “Hogan had his back surgery again. He had the nerves cut from his lower body.”
Angle continued on his podcast, “He can’t feel his lower body. 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. Now he can’t feel his legs, so he has to walk with a cane, which is pretty serious.” Since then, fans have been wondering if Hulk Hogan is paralysed or not.
However, Hulk cleared the air surrounding these rumours via his representative who revealed that Hulk can walk without a cane and is “doing well and is not paralyzed.” Well, this may not be entirely true as Hulk is using a walking stick to support himself, but yea, the wrestler isn’t paralysed for sure!
Hogan is undoubtedly regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. But again, in the WWE world, with great success, comes great injuries. The 69-year-old wrestler has suffered a multitude of “back, hip, spine and knee injuries” followed by several surgeries, both during his career and after retirement.
In 2021, Hulk Hogan’s daughter, Brooke, provided insights into her father’s health journey. During her appearance on the “Hollywood Raw” podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, she revealed that Hulk has undergone almost 25 surgeries in the last 10 years.
“He’s had both shoulders scoped, and he had his whole bicep…and everything tied up in his shoulder last year,” she revealed on the podcast. “That was a disaster. He got MRSA, and it was like a big thing. So we had to go back.” She added, “He’s had both of his knees replaced multiple times, I think twice on both. He’s had his hips done. He’s had his elbow scoped. He’s had so many surgeries.”
After his recent back surgery, Hulk has come out stronger and seems to be doing great. This recent outing marks his first public appearance since his rep clarified this week that “everything is OK with him” following his back surgery. We wish Hulk Hogan great health and a long life ahead!
