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."

Thats like saying that Nick should quit driving after totalling half a dozen cars. They both SHOULD QUIT, but neither will.

and you should be in prison and your Father is an embarrassment for still staying in Wrestling at the age of what 60? or something. My goodness is your father so hard up for money he cannot just go away and retire?

I am not going to read three pages. We are going to care what Nick Hogan has to say after he drove, did a speed drive, got in an accident and injured his buddy so bad he is basically a vegetable....really TMZ, come on. WHO DCARES what Nick Hogan has to say, he cares little about human life, and for him to make a comment about it...um yeah, why were you behind the wheel of a car and caused someone grievous bodily harm. TMZ, you just lost my respect with this post.

TMZ, why are you kissing this loser's azz? He nearly killed his best friend and made him a vegetable.
.
There's NO reason he should be commenting on this. Except for destroying his friends life, he's a no one.

You no-business, born-insecure, jock-jawed motherfuncker!


The son of Hulk Hogan. The word Nick Hogan can be used if you happen to crash your car, or give your friend brain damage (1), or if you feel that you are un-deserving of everything you have. It is also often used as an adjective to describe anything worthless (2). Can also be used as a noun as to replace anything that sucks

I have to agree with Nick, I hope Lawler takes it easy and no longer wrestlers after this. I'm glad he survived.
