WWE legend Hulk Hogan ‘can’t feel his legs’ after ‘nerves cut’ during surgery

Hulk Hogan has revealed that he can’t feel his legs after his nerves were cut during back surgery he had to undergo to try and repair years of damage suffered during his wrestling career.

The WWE legend reportedly told wrestling Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle, who shared the news on his podcast, that he now has to walk with a cane

“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”, Angle said.

He said he felt sorrow for what Hogan, 69, has to deal with now: “That's pretty serious, man. I really feel for Hogan.

“He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up”.

It is understood that this latest round of surgery is the eleventh he has had to go through.

Hogan has said in the past that his famous leg drops are what is causing his current health problems, going on the record to say he regrets using this particular move.

He previously said that he knew he had to retire after his sixth back surgery.

Hogan’s wrestling career spanned from 1977 to 2012, when he announced his retirement.

His work as a wrestler made him an international icon, even spending several years wrestling in a Japanese league, where fans nicknamed him "Number One".

The world famous wrestler has been no stranger to controversy. An audio file from a 2007 sex tape was leaked to American media, catching him saying the N-word and admitting that he was “a racist, to a point” while expressing disapproval that his daughter was dating a black man.

He was also awarded $115 million by a federal judge after outlet Gawker released a leaked sex tape between him and the estranged wife of radio personality Bubba The Love Sponge.
