Hulk Hogan has admitted he might need to go under the knife yet again.
The WWE Hall of Famer has been open about the damage his wrestling career has done to his body, but his latest problems seem to have come about in a very different fashion. Speaking to Muscle and Health, Hogan lifted the lid on his recent struggles, admitting he might need further surgery.
However, on this occasion, his problems stem from doing “some crazy stuff in Australia with Ric Flair.”
“Our good friend Ric Flair put my back out last year,” he explains. “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!”
