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. However, Hogan has been plagued with numerous health issues over the years. Now it appears that Hogan is hopeful he won’t have to undergo his 11th back surgery.

Hulk Hogan is a legendary figure in the world of professional wrestling, with his name being synonymous with the sport. While he has done a lot of questionable things over the years, none of that has erased his importance to the business.

The Hulkster had a plethora of back problems over the years due to him using the leg drop as his finisher. He ended up having 10 surgeries for his back as a result.

While speaking with Muscle and Health, The Hulkster revealed that he was having more back issues. Hogan made it clear that he is hopeful he won’t have to undergo his 11th back surgery.


Our good friend Ric Flair put my back out last year. I have a hard time walking. I went and had a myogram done this week because they’re talking about back surgery number eleven, which I truly hope I can avoid. The problem goes from my tailbone all the way up to my shoulder blades. They say above the hardware, there are a couple of vertebrae that are bad. That was my fault because I did some crazy stuff in Australia with Ric right after I had back surgery and messed them up. I’ve been praying the disc is not touching the spinal cord so I can avoid going under the knife again.

It’s just hard to walk a distance. I start doing the hunchback walk if I walk too far. Right now, I’m enjoying life on the beach. Playing the bass for fun when my daughter Brooke comes to visit, working on my cars and partying hard and sober. Life is good!”

 Hogan also believes he should have ended his pro wrestling career around the 20-year mark. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what’s next in store for the Hulkster, as he now has a new lease on life.
