WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is one of the biggest and most influential names in the pro wrestling business and has accomplished a lot in the industry. That said, he is also known for saying a lot of bizarre things over the years. Now it appears Hogan explained why he stopped drinking earlier this year.

Hulk Hogan is a legendary figure in the world of professional wrestling, with his name being synonymous with the sport. While he may no longer be as beloved as he once was, there’s no denying just how important Hogan has been to the industry.

The Hulkster had had a longstanding issue with his health, especially when it came to consuming alcholol. Thankfully, he has gotten himself into great shape and is healthier now.

While speaking to Men’s Health about his relationship with alcohol, Hulk Hogan revealed that he would drink up to 15 beers daily at the peak of his wrestling career. Hogan then explained why he stopped drinking alcohol for the past six months.


“The pre-match meal was probably three Miller Lites and two Tylenols. That was the pre-match meal, then afterwards, the post-match meal was probably 12 Miller Lites.

No, I don’t. I don’t drink alcohol at all. I just don’t drink. Don’t take Tylenols; I don’t do anything except really good water. Mountain Valley water in glass bottles.

[I gave up alcohol] about six months ago. Completely. I just got tired of it. It got to be a way to kind of numb me a little bit because I had a bunch of crazy business problems and personal stuff going on at the time and caught myself after I would train getting too aggressive once again with the alcohol, so I decided to stop it.”

Hulk Hogan also believes he should have ended his pro wrestling career around the 20-year mark. Regardless, it is certainly great to see The Hulkster in much better health now and that’s all that matters.
