The recent WWE Raw is XXX 30th Anniversary special kicked off with Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart welcoming viewers to the show, with the legendary former WWE Champion suffering microphone issues throughout his segment.
Backstage at Raw, Hogan caught up with fellow WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle, with Angle recounting on the Kurt Angle Show Podcast how Hogan is in a bad way following back surgery:
“Hogan had back surgery again. He had the nerves cut from his lower body, he can't feel his lower body. So, 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. So, now he can't feel his legs so he has to walk with a cane which is, you know, that's pretty serious. I mean, I really feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up,” said Angle.
Hogan revealed in 2022 that he has undergone over 20 surgical procedures over the past 10 years, effectively ending his in-ring career for good.
