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."

Nick Hogan shouldn't be allowed to drive ever again, as far as I'm concerned...Lawer didn't ever horribly disfigure any of his fellow wrestlers by accident. Nick Hogan needs to shut his punk mouth the Hell up, that simple idiot.

Nick Hogan hasn't done a damn thing in the business and doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. Jerry Lawler works 150+ independent shows a year on top of his Monday night job. Nick Hogan should shut up and go back to his AA meetings.

i agree with nick for wrestling like other sports do take their toll on the body that is why jerry retired to do announcing plus the fact that most wrestlers from the wwe have a bad habbit of not living passed their thirties rare examples shawn michels. nicks dad hulk hogan, and jerrry nick is not a wrestler he needs to not say some one should retire. seems nick is still the spoiled know it all brat

not to mention nick needs to learn some sincerity for he pulled his old prayers are with you when he crippled john his friend. not to mention nick tried to learn about getting in the ring then found it was work and quit. some one needs to give nick some leassons in compassion or put him in a choke hold and shut him up.
