Hulk Hogan struggling with health has been a topic of concern for wrestling fans over the past few weeks. Brooke Hogan, daughter of Hulk confirmed on Hollywood Raw that the WWE Hall of Famer had recently undergone his 25th surgery in the past decade. Eric Bischoff now has an update on Hulk’s health issues.
Brooke stated last year that Hulk had both his shoulders scoped plus his whole bicep and everything was tied up in his shoulder. That was a complete disaster. On top of that he MRSA infection which was like a big thing and they had to go back in and undo it with a ton of physical therapy.
Hulk even had both of his knees replaced, multiple times, perhaps twice on both. He’s had his hips done. He’s had his elbows scoped.
Following Ric Flair’s recent update on his Woooo Nation Uncensored podcast painting a depressed picture of Hulk Hogan health-wise, Eric Bischoff has an update on the Hulkster’s condition. Eric Bischoff opened up on the 83 Weeks podcast.
The Nature Boy announced that Hulk is having some serious health issues but he keeps up with him. They support each other, good and bad. When Ric was in coma, Hulk flew up that day to see him. Hulk was gracious, Jimmy Hart was great. Ric however doesn’t remember seeing them because he was in a coma but their gesture and effort to come means a lot to him.
Days later, Hogan posted a new photo on Instagram, showing he had lost a considerable amount of weight. He claims that he was back down to the same weight as his high school freshman year. Here’s what we get from Bischoff’s update:
“He’s overcoming a lot of physical challenges. I was just with Hulk a week and a half or two weeks ago and he is training. Although the training is a little bit different than it used to be, he’s doing his physical therapy four or five days a week, a couple hours a day. Gets home and spends another hour or two in the gym and is eating as healthy as he can eat and I’m sure he’s praying his heart out to try to get a lot of the mobility back that 17 back surgeries and a couple hip replacements will take away from you.”
Hogan has been quiet as of late, not doing much media at all. His daughter Brooke, however, recently spoke with Hollywood Life and said Hulk has “obviously” learned from his past mistakes and lives a better life. The fans would be glad to hear Bischoff’s update.
