Hulk Hogan 'unable to feel his legs' after operation, claims WWE icon Kurt Angle
Hulk Hogan 'can't feel his lower body' after undergoing back surgery

WWE legend Hulk Hogan has recently had surgery and can't feel his lower body, according to fellow ex-wrestler.

The 69-year-old former wrestler (real name Terry Gene Bollea) is said to have had a procedure that removed nerves from his lower body.

However those close to Bollea are understood to have dismissed Angle's claims.

Fellow WWE icon Kurt Angle opened up about his long-time friend's surgery on his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show.

"Hogan had his back surgery again," he said, referencing Hogan's previous revelations in 2020 that he had 17 surgeries over the last 10 years.

"He had the nerves cut from his lower body," Angle continued. "He can't feel his lower body, so he has to use his cane to walk around."

He initially said that he thought Hogan was using the cane because he has back pain. However, Angle later claimed: "He doesn't have any pain. He has nothing at all. He can't feel anything."

"Now he can't feel his legs, so he has to walk with a cane," he claimed. "That's pretty serious, man. I mean, I really feel for Hogan."

Angle added: "He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up."

Hogan appeared on the 30th anniversary of WWE’s Monday Night Raw last week addressing the Philadelphia crowd alongside "Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart.

However, he didn't go down to the ring.

Angle continued: "I mean, if you’re gonna kick off the show, the 30th anniversary of Raw, [it] should be Hulk Hogan. He’s the name and face of the company. He’s the guy that revolutionised pro wrestling. I have so much respect for him.”
