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."

He does wrestle regularly for smaller shows. Nick Hogan is a loser. Hulk has to wrestle because he has nothing, Jerry does it because he wants to. I didnt even read this story, just wanted to say that Nick and his family are a bunch of losers.

Nick Hogan: your a complete piece of shyte. Your dad is a washed up joke, your mother is s a prostitute and your sister is an untalented bimbo. May you all be crushed by a giant boulder that rolls onto your house while doing your stupid "real-ality" show.

And you should quit killing people with your car Nick....

Why is he on camera? People have served longer sentences for tax evasion than he did for killing a person. He's a disgrace to the so-called justice system.

Advice for Nick, he should go hide his head in a hole somewhere after he put his "best friend" into a vegetive
state and after the spotlight/media coverage let up on his situation he and his piece of ****e father try to move this veteran to some hole in the wall ****hole were he wouldn't even receive 3rd world quality health care. Father and son make me sick, and I pray that they get whats coming to them.

I knew that the comments would be completely irrelevant to the topic at hand. There is know doubt that Nick ****ed some ones life up but lets stay on topic here... I question the IQ of TMZ viewers. :P

The entire hogan family should be tarred and feathered and forced off a cliff into a giant vat of boiling piss. This nick hogan speaks like he should wear a padded helmet wherever he goes.
