Jimmy Hart has given an update on Hulk Hogan following reports that the WWE legend was dealing with “really bad health issues”.
Back in November, while speaking about his own health problems, Ric Flair revealed on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast that Hulk Hogan was dealing with issues of his own having reportedly had multiple back surgeries and hip replacements over the course of the last few years.
“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, Hogan’s longtime friend and manager, Jimmy Hart, has provided an update on the WWE Hall of Famer’s condition during an appearance on ‘Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw’. Hart says Hogan is taking therapy every week and doing a lot better.
“Well, he’s doing a lot better. Still, after 12 back surgeries, hips, and knees, he’s doing so much better. He’s been taking this therapy every week and it’s been really improving him more and more so he can get up and get about pretty good now.
Hart then added that the ‘Hulkster’ looks as good as ever and is still in top form in interviews.
“He still looks good. He always has the hair and has the tan. His upper body is unbelievable. He always looks the part. He can still do an interview at the drop of a hat. He knows what to say and when to say it. He is such a magnet. People love him no matter where we go. It’s crazy.”
