Pro wrestler Hulk Hogan has addressed claims that he was left paralysed after his back surgery. These claims gained pace after Kurt Angle made startling revelations about the wrestler on “The Kurt Angle Show”. Read on to learn more about Hulk’s present health status.
Hulk Hogan Isn’t Paralysed…
Pro wrestler Hulk Hogan has cleared the air surrounding his health status. Claims regarding Hulk’s paralysis gained momentum after fellow wrestler Kurt Angle 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.”
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.
“He had the nerves cut from his lower body,” he claimed on his podcast. Following Angle’s claims, several outlets posted articles titled, “Hulk is paralysed”. However, none of that is true. The good news is that Hogan has addressed these claims via his rep and revealed that he’s doing absolutely fine.
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.” FYI, Hulk was seen having a gala time as he posted a photo of himself on Monday (Jan. 30) on Instagram at a karaoke night at his restaurant, Hogan’s Hangout, Florida.
