Nick Hogan

Jerry Lawler Should Quit

Wrestling After Heart Attack

Hulk Hogan
's son Nick Hogan is incredibly relieved that Jerry "The King" Lawler has stabilized since his heart attack Monday night -- but tells TMZ, it might be time Lawler considered retirement.

Nick tells us, wrestling "takes a toll" on your body -- and as a result, "most guys retire around 50ish." Lawler is 62.

According to Nick, people in the wrestling business have varied career lengths -- but when injuries come into play, it's hard to ignore the obvious ... it's time to slow down.

Nick uses his own dad as an example -- saying even his 59-year-old father has cut back drastically on wrestling because of serious back injuries.

Nick's parting words -- "Our prayers are with you, Jerry. Glad to hear you're alright."

What ever you say, Nick.

From a family who's Dad hocks rental stuff on TV/can't get past his A-Team days and a Mom who is just the other side of being a whore.

That is one messed up family.

nick has some nerve, saying jerry should retire when his dad is still out there. nick saying his dad has cut back is bull, first jerry hasn't wrestled in awhile in fact jerry wrestles less than hogan dose, hogan get in the ring and does more than jerry ever does. the last time jerry wrestling was about like a year ago hogan wrestled just last week and the week before that.

But...Lawler does not wrestle anymore. he is a ringside announcer. Its like telling Howard Cossell, or Bob Costas to take it easy because their job is too stressful. Idiots.

I agree, but I also think Nick's untalented sister Brooke should quit acting. I saw her on the Syfy channel in some shark movie and she was the worst actress I have ever seen. I would like to see Nick in a reality show with Amanda Bynes, Brandy Norwood and RebeccaGgayheart where they all have to go back to driving school. Amanda has just done hit and runs but Nick's friend is a vegatable because of Nick crashing his car and Brandy and Rebecca have both killed people with their cars.THEY ALL NEED DRIVING SCHOOL! for comic relief I think the show would be hilarious if Danny Devito was the driving instructor
