He just threw his back out from carrying his ex-wife and her 21 year old sex-toy.

Steroids for years. This guy is in his late 40's or older. Hogan, still does the same bandana with the fake hair glued on the back of his bandana wig and fake mustache. Hogan uses more make-up then girls.

Consequences of steroid use. But surgery on the back is unnecessary unless you've done serious tearing damage. Hulk/Terry didn't do much in the ring when he wrestled, just a leg drop and punches. Once in a while, he'd slam a wrestler. I'd bet that his back cannot support his bulky upper body. The surgeries have probably made things worse, not better.

@46 Mel you stupid moron.. his back issues are passed a chiro or a stupid massage. No one is as dumb as you so don't worry.. BTW he isn't on welfare like you so its not TAX dollars paying for it..

@47 I thought 46 was stupid then I saw yours. Steroids? then it would be whole body not one part.

Tearing? no you do not tear bone... You have no idea wtf your talking about

Hulk did enough in the ring and outside. Why not take one good bodyslam and see how you feel....

He just had laser surgery to remove bone spurs in his lower back. I looked into this for myself & 2 Dr's told me they could do it, but theres no guarantee that even sharper scar tissue will grow back. This guy is 57 & needs to stop wrestling, but his whore wife & mutant son fixed that didn't she?
