Eric Bischoff has given an update on the current state of Hulk Hogan’s health following comments made by Ric Flair that said The Hulkster was battling “really bad” health issues.
The Nature Boy was discussing his relationship with Hulk Hogan on his new Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast. Flair recalled his own health battles and says Hogan and Jimmy Hart had visited The Nature Boy in hospital but right now Hogan was fighting some battles of his own:
“He’s having some really bad health issues but he keeps up with me. We support each other, good and bad. When I was in the hospital he flew up that day like everybody else that came up to see me…Hulk was gracious, Jimmy Hart was great. I don’t remember seeing them because I was in a coma but they made the effort to go. Those are the kind of things that mean a lot.”
Now former WCW President and long-time friend of Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff has weighed in on Hogan’s battles on his 83 Weeks podcast. Bischoff says that Hulk Hogan is saying his prayers and eating his vitamins like never before:
“He actually probably is because 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.”
